Last Satuday, I was so happy to see Banchetto’s post in their FB Fanpage. They would be having WISH LANTERNS, which of course are like the sky lanterns in Tangled. As I have read the details, I hurried up to have a reservation for the wish lantern, one wish lantern cost 100php. I would like to be part of this special event, imagine wish lantern + foods = a romantic 11/11/11 for me and my honey. Thanks to Banchetto for the update and Ms. Poopai (organizer of the event) for the quick response. I’ve got two wish lanterns! I love the movie Tangled, the romantic scene with sky lantern, and now I’m so excited for my first Banchetto experience with wish lantern on this special day – November 11, 2011. 🙂
Here’s the info from BANCHETTO :
BANCHETTO-MEGATENT will have a special activity on Friday, November 11, 2011. We will celebrate the 11-11-11 on that night with a bang!
We will have the WISH LANTERNS! Wish Lanterns are the equivalent of mini hot air balloons. When released into the night sky the person releasing the lantern will traditionally make a wish for the future.
Wish Lanterns ® are 100% biodegradable, non-flammable, safe, and easy to use, creates an amazing visual effect that adds enjoyment and wonder to any special occasion. All you have to do is light the fuel cell, wait for the lanterns to fill up with hot air and then let go. You, your family and your guests will gaze as the Wish Lantern floats up to the sky. The Wish Lantern will be in the air for about 12 minutes and goes up over a mile in to the night sky!
We will release the WISH LANTERNS into the air all at the same time at exactly 11.11pm. Please bring your whole family with you and experience making a wish altogether as a family. Be there at 10pm so you can still write down your wishes in the wishing paper.
At this time, we would like to know who amongst you are interested to join us so we can order the equivalent number of WISH LANTERNS from our supplier.
We did a similar activity in BANCHETTO-FORUM during the Chinese New Year this year, and it really helped a lot in increasing the right chi, the right PROSPERITY Energy, everyone have attracted after.
The WISH LANTERNS costs Php 100 each – it comes with a wishing paper and a small candle.
To RESERVE A LANTERN, please email us your FULL NAME, CONTACT NO., NO. of LANTERNS and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Lanterns will be claimed at the Banchetto MEGATENT Information Booth on Friday from 8pm-11pm.
Please note that only reservations made thru email will be counted. Lanterns will also be sold at the venue on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS. Deadline for reservations will be on Friday at 12 noon. Thank you!
