The rain may be erratic, and sure, the weather seems to be getting colder these days. But while it feels like the usual year-end monsoon is certainly hitting us, nothing’s going to dampen the spirits of the good people at Heineken, who are prepping us to get into the season of celebration and festivities this December.

With less than 10 days to Christmas and ZoukOut 2008 just over, what about gathering your buddies and heading down to Singapore’s most happening nightspot? Here, at the heart of Clarke Quay, you certainly can’t miss the lights of Heineken’s Lite Peg Greeting Wall in the Fountain Area.


This first if its kind wall here in Singapore, which is similar to an LED screen, lets you create your own greetings by pegging in small ‘Lite Pegs’ on the special wall surface.

Put your own special greeting up

How innovative! This UrbanWire writer was definitely enthralled by the idea of creating a personalised greeting on the wall and snapping photos of it and posting it up on Flickr and Facebook for all to see. If only one had more hands to speed up the process… But then again, that’s the point of bringing friends along to work on this little ‘holiday’ project if you’ve run out of fun ideas after a day out together.
