Flashing Hearts from Taipei 101

Wishes from world's tallest skyscraper for Valentine's Day

TAIPEI, Feb 13, 2006 (AFP) - The world's tallest skyscraper in Taipei is sending a giant valentine to the world, with massive red hearts flashing on all four sides of the building through Valentine's Day week, officials said Monday.

It was hard for passersby not to notice the 33.6-meter (110-foot) hearts -- tipped to be the largest in the world -- glowing on each side of Taipei 101 from the 72nd to the 79th floors.

"The love heart presented by Taipei 101 is aimed to convey our wishes to the world's lovers," said Daina Chen, chairwoman of Taipei Financial Center Corporation, which owns the 508-meter-tall building.

"Furthermore, we also hope to spread love among human beings," she said.

The giant hearts will be lit every evening until Sunday.
