Where your wishes take off @ 313

I've always seen people in TV writing their wishes on sky lanterns and setting them off and to set off my very own sky lantern has been on my to do list for quite some time!

Traditionally practiced in Taiwan, hand-written lanterns are lit up and released into the sky on the 15th day of Chinese New Year which symbolises good luck and to cast away negativity.

However, it is not convenient for us to set off one in Singapore due to the many buildings as well as them being an obstruction for air crafts.

I've never thought that I would be able to set a sky lantern off in Singapore but thanks to 313@Somerset, my wish came true last friday!

From 28 January 2016 to 6 Febuary 2016, a state of the art interactive digital sky lantern display themed "Where your wishes take off @313" is set up in the level 1 atrium of Somerset 313.

Trying to customize my own lantern!
iPads are stationed at the atrium for us to customise our wishes and sky lanterns!
Firstly, we start off by logging in to our Facebook account (You can log in without Facebook too but the lantern won't look as nice)

Next, we can then choose the background of our lantern! 
To add on, by logging into Facebook, your profile picture will appear at the top of the sky lantern.

After selecting your background, you can then now customize your wishes!

And you're then ready to release you wish into the big digital screen!!
Create a new wish if you want!
And you can create as many wishes as you want!!

May your 2016 be filled with SMILES!
If connected to Facebook, you can also obtain your soft copy of lantern from there!

Huat ah!!!
Other than digital wishes, you can also write your own wishes in hardcopy!

Can you spot my wish among other pretty wishes? 
Excited to create our very own wishes!
I look so happy :p

Are you as ready as me to create your very own wishes now to start off your Chinese New Year? 

Hurry, head down to 313 Somerset before tomorrow ends!!

Thanks for reading!!
