Skywatch Friday-Huge Lantern

This is an old photo taken during Chinese New Year earlier this year. It is a giant lantern and it can revolved. I think it looked so pretty. The lantern was located on the roof top of Vivo City (a huge shopping mall near Harbour Front MRT Station.

This is one of my favourite mall but been a long time since I visited there.

A short video showing the lantern revolving.

I saw some lights inside the lantern so it should light up in the night.

Thanks all for the visit and have an enjoyable weekend. I know I will. :)

Hi Alice! Interesting lantern! Glad to read that you're no longer ruining your shoes; even if that is at the cost of avoiding discos... ;))
