It’s end of August! Which means the time for mid-autumn festival. I’ve been looking for information about the event this year (only yesterday actually 😅) but couldn’t find anything.
Today, I went to Vivocity to collect my ezcharm from Golden Village (GV) cinema. I’m not familiar with the mall layout and ended up at 3rd floor where I saw a sign about VivoCity’s Curious Adventures and it is about Alice in Wonderland lanterns!! I walked excitedly to the SkyPark and there it is! The lanterns 😍
I was there from 5.20pm to 5.30pm. Didn’t take too many photos because I thought it would be better if they are on. I left the park and continued with my original plan. Go to GV cinema. Once I’m done, I had dinner in one of the resto there. The whole time I was eating, I was contemplating between going home and waiting for the evening sky. After further consideration (and some suggestions from my friends), I decided to wait until it’s dark (or at least until the lantern is on. I went up to the SkyPark again around 6.30pm and sat near the pool.
At 7.00pm, they turned on the lantern!! Soooo pretty ❤ I only have my Samsung phone with me and the first few shots were not that good because all I can see is the lights inside the lantern individually, not as one whole object. Hence, I switched the mode to Pro mode. There I could set the ISO to 100, and set the apperture so I could balance the lights. And voila, here they are :
Since I was there already, I decided to wait for a little while until the sky darker and took another round of photos. Still using pro mode on Samsung phone.
This mid-autumn lantern will last until 22 September 2019 at VivoCity Mall. If you want to visit, come at or after 7.00pm when they have turned on the lanterns. There is another event as well related to this Wonderland, you can read more here.
Where to go for my next mid-autumn lantern obsession? Maybe Gardens By The Bay!
Thank you for reading. Happy shooting the pretty lanterns 😉
