The celebration around the island for SG50 is gaining momentum. If like me, you did not manage to get tickets for the NDP, do not fret, as there are many other free celebratory events you can go to, like this one at Fullerton Hotel.
The Fullerton Hotel has lined up a 9-day tribute with a spectacular projection mapping that will see the hotel’s magnificent facade brought to life through the use of 3D animation and projection techniques. The 8-minute long music and video extravaganza entitled “A Celebration of Our Heritage” will offer glimpses of Singapore over the past 50 years.
Show timings are as follows:
1, 2, 8 and 9 August 2015 – 8pm, 9pm, 10pm, 11pm
3 to 7 August 2015 – 8pm, 9pm, 10pm
The Fullerton Hotel will also be rewarding ten lucky winners with a complimentary weekend night’s stay. Members of the public are encouraged to take a photo of the video projection and submit their entries with their birthday wishes to the nation. To stand a chance to win, simply complete the following steps:
1. Take a photo of the video projection
2. ‘Like’ The Fullerton Hotel Facebook page or Instagram page (www.facebook.com/TheFullertonHotel and @fullertonhotel)
3. Upload the photo, include a caption of your birthday wishes to the nation as well as the hashtag #FullertonSG50LightUp
Get your friends to like your photo to increase your chances of winning. Contest closes on Sunday, 9 August, 11.59pm and all winners will be notified via email.
On 7 th and 8th August, from 7.30pm, The Fullerton Hotel will also distribute complimentary kachang putih (roasted or sweetened peanuts or beans traditionally sold in paper cones) and potong ice cream (rectangular popsicles in local flavours such as red bean, yam and durian) at One Fullerton to add to the sense of nostalgia.
On the actual day, view ‘live’ telecast of NDP on the LCD screens set up around Fullerton Bay area, with the added benefits of watching actual aerial flypast and fireworks.
So do mark your calendar and head down to The Fullerton Hotel to join in the bash from 1 August onward.
Let the party begins!
