~ Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2010/2011 - The Wishing Sphere ~

If you have passed by Marina Bay waterfront recently, you would spot that it looks slightly different from usual. Yes! Thousands and thousands of white spheres are floating on the waters marked out by the buoy markers. Due to popular demand, the number of wishing spheres have doubled to 20,000 and they contain all the wishes, hopes and dreams each would like to pen for the New Year.

Important pointers to note : The spheres are made of plastic and non-biodegradable. Once the event is over on 1st Jan 2011, the wishing spheres will be removed and sent for recycling into new products. The marker pens used are non-toxic and free of chemicals.

We also pen our wishes down for the New Year and this is our first time in doing so. Denver wished that we will live a happy life together while Gladys started with an abstract artwork.

I couldn't make out what she is trying to draw initially but we figured she may want to wish for a greener world. (Not forgetting loving Mommy. ^_^) We wrote our wishes/dreams for the New Year and you can do it so! Apart from Singaporeans, tourists are also intrigued by this event and wrote down their well wishes in different languages. While writing, it is just as interesting to read others people wishes too. Some are quite meaningful while others are funny.

It's about 11 days to New Year and there are a series of celebrations lined up at the Marina Bay.  It has become a yearly event with Countdown party, Fireworks as we bid farewell for 2010.
