Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

On 15th Aug 2009, we went to a newly opened shopping mall called Iluma. It is located in Bugis and prominently situated opposite Bugis Junction.

Inside Iluma, an artist is painting on the wall. We came to know that actually today Iluma is having it’s light up for the unique looking design so there are a number of activities lined up.

Moving on, we came across some acrobatics performance on-going inside the mall and decided to stay to check it out.

At the entrance of Iluma, quite a crowd have gathered to check out the happenings. Notice the unique-looking and diamond-shaped thingy, these will be lighted up tonight. Anticipating it and hope that it will look great!

We were tired walking around and hence stopped by at Breko Café, which is beside Iluma, to take a breather. We decided to sit outside as the weather is cooling and we can still check out the on-goings at Iluma too.

On the same level, there is a cluster of 7 Japanese restaurants from different prefectures of Japan, which is collectively known as Ebiboshi Shotengai. The end result is somehow like Movenpick Marche Restaurant. The restaurants featured are Katsumiya, Tsubohachi (Japan’s Number One Izakaya), Sanshigo, Menya Manpei, Tora Shabu, Teppan No Hoshi and Sweet Brothers.

Light up show have finally started and as you can see, it can formed words as well.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

The lights are ever moving and it’s like a huge giant TV display (though it’s not flat).

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Very bright light up! My opinion is that the display will be very much suitable during Christmas as it’s look so much like snow flakes.

Iluma @ Bugis Light Up

Photos does not do justice to the beautiful display and I wasn’t able to capture video as the camera I had along didn’t have that function!
