The evening was #lit with the age-old traditional Lion Dance performance, a rousing speech by our President and Group CEO Mr Lim Ming Yan, and our annual CapitaStar Hongbao Giveaway.

"From setting our sights to recycle and deploy S$3 billion worth of capital every year, to our ambition to have 160,000 serviced residence units by 2023 – we are accelerating our global expansion to achieve total assets under management of S$100 billion by 2020.
To sum up CapitaLand’s aspirations for 2018 and beyond, I would like to use this Chinese phrase: 志在四方，智在城市生活 – which encapsulates our global ambition to transform city living."

CapitaLand #keepitreal Instagram Photo Showcase
Our inspiration to #keepitreal, every day in every city, comes from our customers’ snapshots of our buildings that they’ve shared on their ‘grams. We decided to share some of these too in a larger-than-life photo showcase! Our guests caught a glimpse of these unique perspectives, and could take home a copy of our 2018 calendar too. If you hold one of these exclusive calendars, have you checked out these cool DIY hacks yet?
Here’s to more unscripted, genuine moments in life that form the best of our memories.
CapitaLand x Lazada Prosperity Box Giveaway
The future of shopping lies in combining both offline and online to create the best customer experience – a vision that is at the heart of CapitaLand’s exclusive shop-in-shop on Lazada.SG. Our guests got to try this out for themselves! From a digital screen, they ‘shopped’ from three Prosperity Box options and got to pick up the actual boxes immediately.
What’s inside remained a surprise until unboxed, but this was definitely a highlight! All the Prosperity Boxes were snapped up before the end of the evening.
TOTO Prosperity Tree
And what’s Chinese New Year without a little luck and flourish? Our guests got to pick a lucky hongbao from the TOTO Prosperity Tree, a beautiful and lush display of peach blossoms to symbolise prosperity, growth and renewal. All to represent our well wishes for everyone to enjoy a super huat year ahead!
Travel Inspiration based on your Zodiac
Now here’s how you can decide on your next big travel adventure based on your zodiac sign. Turns out you can turn to the fengshui elements for some inspiration! Our Ascott Travel Inspiration wall was a hit with guests constantly in a state of wanderlust (then again, who isn’t?) – and suggested the cities that hold the greatest fortune for travelling to, based on one’s Chinese zodiac.
It’s looking to be quite a good year! You might be surprised by an unexpected windfall, that long-awaited promotion, or a new relationship. But if you want it, go get it! Rats are quick-witted, resourceful and versatile, so work that to your advantage. Seize the next big opportunity and don’t let go; aim your sights Northeast and explore a destination that’s cosmopolitan, fast-paced and totally rat-ical! Like Shanghai, China’s biggest city – where you can have your cheese and eat it too.
Say hello to a holiday that’s great on your wallet!

This year, the mighty Ox will plow ahead and achieve its goals through consistent efforts. External factors have no place in determining your success and happiness if you stay focused, strong and determined. Taking time to relax and enjoying regular short trips will do you good! To give your luck quotient an extra leg up, travel to the Northeast. How about bustling Tokyo, the city that never sleeps? Its urban vibes will surely rub off on you for more bullishdays ahead.
Gather your herd and head to the city of life and vitality!
Get excited; it seems like several pleasant surprises await you on many fronts! Tigers are charming and confident, so you’ll do well if you channel these traits into pursuing career opportunities, new hobbies – maybe even a giant step into the next big phase of your life? To make the most of 2018, Tigers should head Northeast. This gives you plenty of juicy destinations with amazing food to choose from, and we think you’ll love the energy of Macau. Yum!
Find your heartiest deal and satisfy that craving!
Looks like you’ll be getting many carrots this year! 2018 is a year of good luck for you, especially in the areas of money and relationships.

The year will definitely be special for the Dragon – the only mythical animal among Chinese zodiac animals. Dragons are ambitious, confident and fearless in embracing challenges. How about being more introspective this year and working on self-development? That burning fire from within will bring you success for sure! Score your ultimate treasure and head Southwest for some good fortune, like Melbourne with its dynamic and cosmopolitan city vibes.
You’re in luck – nowhere is off-limits this year and fortune seems to favour you on all counts. Snakes are the wisest and most intuitive of the lot, so they tend to be the thinkers both at work and in love. And that’s hard work. So go on your vacay! Ease your way to anywhere you like, but for an extra boost of prosperity, head Northeast or Northwest. Hong Kong and Boracay will ground you in joy and peace, but the unforgettable magic will happen in romantic Paris.
Gallop into financial freedom and stability this year, and don’t forget to stop to smell the roses (and hay)! Horses are active and energetic, and enjoy the company of trusted mates. Yet, because they often take centrestage, rest is important for a mind, body and soul recharge. So a holiday with the best buds is a must! Your lucky direction this year is Northwest. Gather your loved ones and trot along to the likes of Berlin.
Be a member and get all-year access to greener pastures.
Sunshine, fresh air and natural greenery have goat your back this year; adjust your aura at scenic spots with lakes or woods and you’re all set for a peaceful year ahead.

There are no baa-a-a-ad directions for you to travel in 2018; go where your heart takes you. For an extra lucky trip, your best chances are Northeast and South – think Hong Kong, Kyoto, or Bali.

Go bananas over the good prospects that may come your way this year; gold is your colour – already a very positive sign of prosperity! Monkeys are fast learners and smart opportunists – use these traits to pick up a fresh skill or set a personal record. Channel your energy into checking off one more item on your bucket list; head to the South or Southwest to boost wealth, like Jakarta perhaps. The capital of Indonesia has so much culture to discover.

Bask in the spotlight this year and seek adventure like you’ve never done before! Roosters are resourceful and talented while remaining grounded and hardworking, waking up before dawn breaks. They usually crow when the sun rises in the east, but if you’re an adventurous one, 2018 is the year to try something different, like discovering your own city in a brand new way. How about a lavish staycay in the West of sunny Singapore?
Bask in the sun with a refreshed perspective from our beautiful island!
This IS your year – where many paw-sibilities await! Welcome prosperity, success and happiness by wearing red and accessorising with jade pieces. Dogs are loyal, honest and kind, and really cherish their relationships with people around them.

It’s probably a good year to keep ‘you reap what you sow’ in mind for more purpose-driven and meaningful days ahead! Pigs are compassionate and generous, naturally winning the favour of others. Keep your loved ones close and spend quality time together; several short haul trips with different groups may help. The luckiest direction for you this year is anywhere in the Southern region of the globe, so consider a holiday to the idyllic and charismatic city of Perth.
Hog a spot in the vibrant city and make your getaway count!
