Aylwin Lek – my photography mentor messaged me if I can cover a photoshoot for Mediacorp as he can’t do it one Sunday morning. As I’ll be working afternoon that day and the shoot will be in the morning, I agreed.
My skin was burned from the strong sunlight but the photos turned out nice and gave my skills good exposure.
Marina Bay Sands welcomed the Chinese New Year with a lively rhythm of clashing cymbals and rumbling drums in a Lion Dance meant to chase evil spirits away. Roving entertainers — stilt walkers, ribbon dancers, mascots and azodiac parade — roamed around the spring flowers, kumquat trees and red fabric-ornamented property.
Chinese delicacies were also served in the Team Dining Rooms to usher in the year of the snake, and red packets or hóngbāo and mandarin oranges were given to the team members. All of these made the Lunar New Year atmosphere at Marina Bay Sands a truly festive one.
I got Love, Intelligence then Beauty.
The sounds in the from the sky that’s telling me to stare and the colorful sparks of lights.
