SINGAPORE - Children from En Community Services writing down their wishes on a wishing sphere on Friday.

They were among 70 seniors and children from the Kheng Chiu Loke Tin Kee Home and En Community Services Society who were invited to pen their wishes. Seniors jotted down festive greetings, and hoped for good health and world peace, while students wished for computers, good exam results and a daily supply of fried chicken.

Their spheres were launched into Marina Bay to form part of the spectacular visual arts display comprising 20,000 wishing spheres carrying the collective hopes and wishes of people from Singapore.
