PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Malaysia Airports has apologised for an erroneous Christmas bunting that misspelled "Mary Christmas" and "Happy New Years".

A photo of the bunting went "viral" on social media, landing criticism from netizens who were disappointed over the typo and grammatical error.
