|Guess what I’ll be doing today at this jetty?|
|Yes, I’m hopping into one of these…|
It’s quite an experience cruising on a speedboat. It felts like I’m in one of those James Bond’s action movies, sitting in the front of the boat, enjoying the breeze. Well, if only the boat could go a little faster…
In countries like Thailand and Taiwan, people write their wishes on sky lanterns and light them up during the night, allowing the lanterns to float high up in the sky. It must be so beautiful to witness this!
Instead of releasing the sky lanterns (airborne paper lanterns) into the sky, others set their wishing lanterns afloat on water. It’s been a tradition among some Asian cultures. The Thais believe that the lanterns symbolises the release of worries and bad memories into somewhere, far off from this universe. The good will come when the bad has gone.
I guess it would have been better if we are able to set our wishing sphere afloat in the waters on our own, just like how some of my friends had the opportunity to release their own sky lanterns into the air in Taiwan.
C’mon down to also view the fireworks at Marina Bay. The wishing spheres will also be lighted up at night! It’s gonna be a blast!
By the way, this post marks my 400th blog post!
