Media Invite: Golden Autumn Celebrations @ RWS

Did you have a great Mid Autumn Festival last week? The festive celebration isn't over yet at RWS, and if you are finding new activities to spend some quality time with your family, you can consider heading to Golden Autumn Celebrations - A 3D Light, Lanterns, Food and Entertainment Festival to enjoy a fun evening together! (Opened till 12 November 2017)

Get ready to be treated to beautiful lanterns brought in from Chengdu (成都), with a spectacular 3D light show on a 12 metres high giant porcelain vase structure. Skip your usual dinner and head in for a hearty meal as free-flow food will be included in your entry fee! Sichuan delicacies are prepared by invited chefs.



Mid-autumn illumination magic is spread across 3 different zones - China Fantasy, Silk Road Fantasy and Childhood Fantasy.
The most attractive segment about this event is the exciting cultural life performance which includes puppet, martial arts, stunt performances and more. It's something not to be missed! Some of the stunts such as the cup tossing were quite impressive to watch. You get to witness Shaolin monks displaying their martial art skills in this 45 min performance too.

Show Timing: 6:30pm-7:15pm and 8:30pm-9:15pm.






The China Fantasy zone includes instagram-worthy lantern pieces that are inspired by renowned Chinese icons such as porcelain vases, the iconic cute panda character, and ancient Chinese architecture including the ancient palace. 

Unfortunately, my family missed the 3D light show which is a five-minute performance depicting the endearing classic tale of Moon Goddess Chang’e (嫦娥) and her beloved husband Hou Yi (后羿).
 




I have to take a photo with 财神爷 for more luck to my business! 


The Childhood Fantasy Zone diplay light lanterns that represent the 12 Zodiacs. My brother also made me recite my little "Zodiac poem" which was etched in my head for probably more than 15 years of my life ever. It's the easiest way to memorize the sequence of each zodiac animal. Oh but don't ask me about the origin of each animal, I cannot remember at all. 

Here it goes:

一鼠,二牛,三虎,四兔,五龙,六蛇,七马,八羊,九猴,十鸡,十一狗,十二猪跟着走

There are also true-to-life dinosaur figures that tower over six metres high which could interest young kids more. This fantasy-like play area also includes an interactive LED dance floor and LED swings to ensure that your kids do not feel left out. 


Not kids anymore, but my brother and I were quite excited about the LED swings. #childhood

Silk Road Fantasy zone brings to life the historical journey across China’s vast landscape where trade discoveries and cultural exchanges meet at the crossroads. The most beautiful structure in this zone is the pair of Swan lanterns which looks really elegant and pretty.
