Over the weekend I was working a Chinese New Year promo at the Pacific Mall in Markham. Having never been there before I was amazed by the layout and colours inside the mall. A mixture of Chinese culture and a mall... it struck me as odd.
Odd because my years of working in malls had taught me they are soul sucking commerce coffins filled with more stale CO2 than real air. Now while I don't doubt on some days the Pacific Mall fits this description, to me it was a breath of fresh air (ha!).
It probably helped that it was Chinese New Year, and I am from a different culture but everything about the atmosphere was fresh and resonated with me.
I found some really unique moments I know I would not have captured anywhere else.
