Vivid Sydney @ The Royal Botanic Garden

29th May 2018 at 9:56 pm

Dear Chibi,

Last night Marcus, Emily and I hung out after work to see the Vivid displays around Circular Quay. It happened to be International Burger Day so we end up dining at Maccas’ and claiming our free Big Mac, woo XD.

There’s usually a ton of people at Vivid, but it really made a difference coming on a Monday night. There were still people, but it wasn’t crazy packed where you felt like you couldn’t move.

Here are some pics I snapped along the way :D The photos aren’t great quality, but it’s about experiencing it in person…right?? XD (I didn’t feel like bringing my camera ^^”)

Snugglepot and Cuddlepie animation. There was even a little booth selling merch XD

Come Fly With Me

Fragmented. A lot of the installations consisted of random objects lit up, glowing and changing colours.

Oh gosh, this mini Harbour Bridge booth XD. The queue was short, but the wait was long!

After what left like an eternity, we finally stepped inside the room. There’s this guy giving instructions on how this thing works. We get to pick the colours and laser effects. I tried to make it look decent so we could at least snap a pic of the result. He was like “Okay, are you ready? If you’re ready hit the button”. I was waiting for something epic to happen. Maybe it’ll start lighting up, and I’ll get to see all the fancy effects? Even better… maybe the actual Harbour Bridge will change colours according to what I picked?

I hit the button.

Everything turned blue and the lights switched off. That was just the “off” button. ahahaha fail :’D
My expectations were way too high :P

Light of the Sails~ The ones from previous years were better in my opinion. This was just random creepy abstract stuff XD

We skipped the Samsung promo stuff, as we couldn’t be bothered lining up :p I was keen to check out The Royal Botanic Garden though as I haven’t been the previous years.
