Well, I spent a little fortune to "advertise" my blog at Suntec Fountain... See video below!
Impressive isn't it? Even better - it's actually free*!!!
How to do it?
Right outside this restaurant that sell Sharks Fin soup, there is this huge metalic dedication station.
As seen in the photo below, the system is named "Song and Laser Dedications". There are two touch screen monitors. One only has to fill in a simple questionaire about themselves and they can then dedicate a song with a special message to someone.
The questionaires are general questions like age group, purpose of visiting suntec and if it is the first time you are visiting Suntec etc.
The touch screen alignment is a little bit off, thus it is a bit difficult to type in your message fast. Nevertheless, I managed to key in my message.
After you hit "send" message, remember to rush off to the fountain area and wait to see your message displayed using laser. See above, it is where people wait to tour round the fountain. The system will then displayed all other messages that they received together. Each of them will be shown twice.
Remember to get your video camera ready and capture that magical moment!
This is what others will see. An interesting display of lasers that flickers and changes according to the tempo of music. The water spray will also differs from one display to another.
Actually, there are a lot of things that you can do with the Song and Laser dedications system. Lovers can declare their vows, interests etc to one another publicly (in fact, that is what my friend did... envy), make a wedding proposal, or if you are in area celebrating friend/family's birthday, one can dedicate a happy birthday message to birthday girl or boy. Well, I do not have anyone to make any declarations then (sad), thus can only pathetically publicise my blog using the system.
Come to think of it, I sort of spoilt market to use such a romantic tool for my blog... Then again, you can't deny that I am creative!
Wait, before you rushing off to Suntec fountain to make dedications. The Song and Laser dedication system is only available on Weekends (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) and Public Holidays. I did not manage to catch the start time, but the laser will end at about 10 pm. So, if you are planning a surprise, recee first to avoid disappointment!
Lastly, Thank You Suntec City for the fun and magical experience!!! Do continue to provide the service until I can make dedications to someone, will you?
*The laser effect is free. Video shooting and post-production services are not included. I edited the footages and added background music myself. :)
