In response to World Smile Day and World Mental Health Day in October, we partnered with SMILEY®, a company dedicated to spreading happiness, some of the faces are placed into different spots to remind all of us to face challenges positively. We encourage everyone to embrace emotions and unlock happiness in their daily lives.
From 20 September to 31 October, The Mills will transform into SmileyWorld®, with giant faces of eight different expressions set up in various spots of the space. They are squeezed into the staircases or placed on the beams. Everyone can search for them at The Mills and discover the different aspects of emotions. From this we can understand that no matter good or bad, we can see the storm with a smile as long as we adjust the mentality.
The most eye-catching “photo spot” is a giant smiling face with a diameter of up to 4 meters, looking at Pak Tin Par Street from the rooftop. With the Mid-Autumn Festival approaching, imagine it as the moon and invite family and friends to gather at The Mills to celebrate the festival. In addition to the eight SmileyWorld® faces installations, The Mills will be surrounded by over a hundred SmileyWorld® stickers. Through different expressions, we awaken the muscles of smiles, release the energy of happiness, and laugh.In addition to the eight SmileyWorld® installations
In addition to the giant faces of SmileyWorld®, The Mills has partnered with different groups and organizations to prepare a series of activities for everyone to find physical and mental balance together.
