A Romantic Gesture
Mall guests will be swept off their feet by dashing and dapper gents who will escort them to the East Atrium where they can try their hand at the different Valentine’s activities and listen to the great beats at the Rhythm Lounge.
Message in a Bottle
Hand-written letters are a throwback to more romantic times, and that's exactly what Shangri-La Plaza is going for with this activity. Mall guests will be invited to write short notes for their loved ones, and to seal them inside bottles that will be displayed at the East Atrium. The recipients will be notified via SMS if they have a note, and they can then pick it up from the mall. Is this a way for you to finally let your crush know how you feel?
Now a more tech-y approach! Guests will also be invited to make e-greetings for their loved ones. These short videos will then be posted on the social media channels of Shangri-La Plaza.
