Independence Day Celebrations at Dolmen Malls

Dolmen Mall, Pakistan’s first international standard mall, is famous for being at the forefront of every major national celebration. With every event, they have continued to raise the bar when it comes to family entertainment and shopping in Karachi.

As our Independence Day approaches, we see the city changing itself to represent the colors of Pakistan, and Dolmen did not stay behind in giving its visitors a flavor of patriotism. This year, their theme, ‘Dolmen loves Pakistan’, was weaved around the concept of #HamariPehchan aimed at giving people a chance to celebrate Pakistan’s identity. Spanning across all three malls, namely Dolmen Mall Clifton, Dolman Mall Tariq Road and Dolmen Mall Hyderi, the event kicked off on 12th of August 2016.

“Living in a time where there is so much uncertainty and negativity surrounding our identity as a nation, we wanted to celebrate the achievements and entertainment aspects of Pakistan which we are known for. These things are relatable to the older as well as the younger generation of this country and they need to be celebrated. This is what makes us proud as Pakistanis,” said Anum Nadeem, Marketing Head of the Dolmen Group at the event.

A weekend worth of activities were executed in all its patriotic glamour and glory. For this, the mall was draped in shades of greens and whites. The walkways saw magnificent replicas of the country’s monuments. From live murals of national heroes to specially dressed guards standing and saluting the customers, the entire mall gave off 14th August vibes. The main atrium was designed to take the mall-goers on a photographic journey through Pakistan and its rich culture. Adding to the desi feel, a dhaaba was set up by Chai Wala offering fresh parathas and chai for all those craving for a cup of tea, Pakistan’s undisputed favorite drink. Folk music and a special Azadi Bazaar selling flags, badges, and other patriotic merchandise set the right mood to the three-day event.

Raise the Flag

To mark the eve of Independence Day, a grandiose performance by Sounds of Kolachi dazzled the audience. The soulful music melted into the beautiful notes of our National Anthem at precisely 12 AM, midst a shower of confetti while the guards raised the flag and saluted. The moment was breathtakingly beautiful.

On the same night, visitors at Dolmen Mall Tariq Road were enthralled to find Noori performing live and did not shy away from fully enjoying patriotic beats.

On the digital front, an instagram competition was hosted, allowing amateur photographers to showcase their talent. Top three photographs were selected and awarded with prizes. More prizes awaited all those who visited Dolmen wearing green. Shoppers and visitors were, thus, pleasantly surprised at various occasions.

Magical Times at Dolmen Mall

Pakistan’s first international standard mall, Dolmen mall, is renowned for always staying a step ahead of its competitors. As summer 2016 approached its end, Dolmen hosted the city’s biggest Back to School Festival. Held from 29th to 31st July 2016 across all three Dolmen Malls, the festival aimed at school going kids and families; giving them a chance to celebrate and be excited about the beginning of another scholastic year.

The Marketing Head at Dolmen, Anum Nadeem said, “We’re holding this event for the first time and are expecting families to shop, eat and have fun. We’ve brought together some great shopping options for our customers.

At Dolmen Mall Clifton, the Back to School edition of the Dolmen Bazaar saw leading retailers like Hub, Leisure Club, KidzDunya & Sindbad as well as budding entrepreneurial ventures like Magic Hands and Paperworks showcase their Back to school range. From school bags, notebooks and stationery to a delightful display of balloon art, the little ones thoroughly enjoyed themselves in this maze of amazement. Parents, on the other hand, rejoiced the rare opportunity for their kids to have fun in a safe and family-friendly environment.

Harry Potter Launch Party

Adding some magic to the cauldron of excitement, Dolmen Mall conjured up the launch of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in collaboration with Liberty Books on the third day of Back to School Festival.The launch of the 8th Harry Potter book was held on Harry Potter’s birthday, 31st July. The response was staggering; the event saw a union of three generations of Potterheads. From five year old HP fanatics flaunting painted scars on their foreheads, to tweens donned in wizard’s robes -even grownups didn’t shy away from swishing their wands and crying out ‘WingardiumLeviosa”. Fans lined up at 9:30 AM to receive their copy of the awaited book on this unique occasion where Harry Potter fandom was so majestically celebrated in Pakistan. Thematic décor, wands, hats, trivia games, giveaway for the best dressed fans and countless photo opportunities with a truly magical ambiance and music, the event was a memorable one.

Dolmen Mall capitalized on the organic pull of Harry Potter fandom and took Back to School Festival to a whole new level. The event exceeded expectation on all fronts, and provided visitors with three days of festivity in a completely family-friendly environment. Dolmen aims to continue surprising its visitors with more such events in the future.

Bloggers and Key Opinion Leaders were hosted by Dolmen Mall and given out special Harry Potter themed giveaways. They shared the impact the book has had on their lives and also relived their back to school memories. They were provided refreshments in the form of crispy and grilled chicken from Golden Chick and delicious cupcakes and coffee from Lals. Everyone left the vicinity of the mall happy and content, with their copy of their favorite book with them.

Cadbury Dairy Milk’s Marvellous Creations Review

On Saturday 13th February 2016, I was invited to the launch of Cadbury Dairy Milk’s New Marvellous Creations at the Marvellous Creations Carnival at Dolmen Mall Clifton, Karachi. They had setup lots of interactive fun activities for all the visitors, especially for the children like Candy Crush and dart game followed by free tasting of the new exciting flavors.

Kids playing Candy Crush

Cadbury Dairy Milk Marvellous Creations brings together a magical mix of delicious Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate with fun candy store ingredients that make for a surprise in every bite. It has been launched in two of the most popular variants: Jelly Popping Candy (160g and 38g) and Cookie Gummy Crunch (38g) with the larger bar ideally positioned for sharing with family and friends.

The wrapper designs are really cool and very eye catching. I think they look a lot more fun and quirky than regular Dairy Milk bars. Opening the wrappers I was met with the unmistakable aroma of Cadbury Dairy Milk. I couldn’t wait to tuck in! The blocks are irregularly shaped which I think this is a nice idea as it adds to the overall “fun” experience of these bars. In Jelly Popping Candy, the jelly pieces added a lovely fruity chewiness to the creamy chocolate, and the sugar coated candy added a nice bit of crunch. As you would expect, the popping candy crackles in your mouth and gives you a weird fizzy sensation. Although I love Cookie Gummy Crunch as it got sweet crunchy fruit jellies and biscuit which makes it very moreish bar.

For all the chocolate lovers its a must try! Tou kiyoun na kuch meetha hojaye ?
