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.
The escalator within Iluma. The unique design on the ceiling make the mall look stylish.
Moving on, we came across some acrobatics performance on-going inside the mall and decided to stay to check it out.
OMG! 180 degrees leg split while hanging upside down. The music together with the amazing stunts shown were really entertaining.
Glad that we managed to catch this performance. A loud clap for the children and teens who performed!
We went outside and there was also another Indonesian music performances as well.
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.
Breko happy hour promotion – 2 bottles of Asahi at S$12++. In fact, you can choose any 2 bottles from a fixed drink list. 🙂
Empire State – a restaurant located at 4th floor. Seems like it’s serving New York styled food.
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.
Tora Shabu – featuring french maid-styled waitress? Will try someday if they allow photography. 😛
Sweet Brothers – serving Japanese desserts and drinks.
For you to pose and take a photo. 😛
Ebiboshi Shotengai – Ninja School? I want to learn Rasengan and Chidori! Wahaha!
Marble Slab Creamery – the freshest ice cream on earth. Believe this is the first store to be opened in Singapore. I will give it a try the next round.
The main reason we came to Iluma is because we have booked for a movie online at Film Garde. 2 tickets at S$19 and booking fee of S$1.
Sale of drink, popcorn, nachos and other snacks for your munching while enjoying the movie but please don’t disturb your neighbors. 🙂
G.I. Joe – The rise of the cobra. This is the show that we watched. Trailer below.

There is also a game arcade within Iluma, with a large variety of games available for your entertainment.
Some teens drumming to the beat or symbol shown on the screen.
Dinner at Thai Express. Yellow Chicken Curry at S$8.90++.
Prawn Toast at S$6.90++.
Prawns Tom Yum Soup at S$9.90++. Yes, there are prawns in the soup but all sunk to the below. 😛
Phad Thai Seafood at S$9.90++.
Otaku House for all your otaku needs – figures, costumes, collectibles, etc.
It’s almost 8pm – the time scheduled for the light up. Outside at the entrance of Iluma, performances still on-going to liven up the atmosphere.
Light up show have finally started and as you can see, it can formed words as well.
The lights are ever moving and it’s like a huge giant TV display (though it’s not flat).
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.
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!
This is the rear entrance of Iluma. Please do go and experience Iluma for yourself!
Breko欢乐时光促销-两瓶Asahi就S$12++。 其实你可以从一个固定的酒单选择任何2瓶酒。 🙂
在同一楼，有一家7间不同日本餐馆混合，也称Ebiboshi Shotengai。最终的结和是有点像Movenpick Marche Restaurant餐厅。精选的餐厅是Katsumiya ， Tsubohachi （日本排名第一的菜） ， Sanshigo ， Menya Manpei ，Tora Shabu, Teppan No Hoshi and Sweet Brothers。
Tora Shabu -采用法国女佣式招待？如果允许拍摄我可能会来。:P
Sweet Brothers -日本甜点和饮料。
Marble Slab Creamery-在地球上最新鲜的冰淇淋。相信这是第一家在新加坡开幕的店。下一次我会试试看。
我们来Iluma主要的原因，是因为我们已经在Film Garde预定了电影票。 2张票S$19，预订费S$1。
G.I. Joe– The rise of the cobra。这是我们看得电影。预告如下。
