If this is not a Christmas miracle, we don’t know what else is.
Remember that time when we posted about the 1,600 Pandas World Tour? Well, it was recently reported that the pandas are set to arrive in Penang on Christmas Eve!
With the theme of “Initiating the Culture of Creative Conservation“, the 1,600 pandas have been traveling around the world to promote the message of panda conservation and sustainable development. It is a collaboration between WWF and Paulo Grangeon, an enthusiastic French sculptor who created the 1,600 papier mache pandas in various poses, emotions and sizes using recycled paper. The world tour started in 2008 and has appeared in more than 100 exhibitions across various countries such as France, the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
As we’ve previously reported, the pandas will stop by Malaysia for their world tour as well, starting from December 21, 2014 to January 25, 2015. But according to Kwong Wah Yit Poh, the pandas will also invade the iconic landmarks in Penang including Lebuh Lintang, Bukit Bendera, Karpal Singh Drive and other iconic places on December 24th. The Chinese newspaper further revealed that Lebuh Lintang is going to be the main exhibition venue as the pandas will be exhibited at that place for a longer period of time. Some of the pandas will be shown at Komtar area as well while the rest will have a flash mob session at Bukit Bendera, Karpal Singh, etc.
No further information were announced about the panda’s arrival in Penang and other states but there’s a high possibility that the pandas will invade Kuala Lumpur first on December 21st. Do check back with us for timely updates!
