Deepavali (also known as Diwali or Divali) is the most important festival of the year for Hindus, whether in Malaysia or anywhere else in the world. It is deeply symbolic: for believers, it is a celebration of the victory of light over darkness. PETRONAS, as part of our tradition of advertising around the important racial and religious festivals of Malaysia, has used the occasion to honour the contribution of Indians to the nationbuilding of our country, and to tell their unique stories.
PETRONAS journeys to East Malaysia to uncover the unique cultures and traditions of Sabah and Sarawak. This 12-part enlightening adventure takes place in Sabah and Sarawak, where we celebrate Kaamatan and Gawai and learn about each festival's delicacies, arts, crafts and traditional practices.
Chinese New Year is the biggest traditional celebration for the Chinese community not just in Malaysia, but around the world. PETRONAS has celebrated CNY, and the Chinese contribution to Malaysia's nationbuilding, through compelling characters and powerful stories for nearly two decades.
