MBS cleaners clear confetti in mall after light-up event

Integrated resort Marina Bay Sands (MBS) has hosted its fair share of Chinese New Year (CNY) celebrations since last week.

To kick off the festivities, MBS organised an indoor celebration named ‘The Dragon Awakens: 2024 Light Up’ last Tuesday (6 Feb).

After the event, however, cleaners were seen clearing heaps of confetti using brooms, blowers, and even nets.

Netizens acknowledged the hard work that the cleaners put in to maintain the mall’s cleanliness. Some even said that they deserve a raise for their efforts.
