Exterior Lighting

Lightings in Singapore are very common in malls, festive occasions and celebrations. I was driving to a large mall in the west for some evening shopping when I saw how beautiful the building looked with the lighting on the walls. This one is in Singapore's IMM and it had been revamped in the past years to make the place more attractive to shoppers after a flop in business in the 90s. It used to be a place to shop for furniture, wedding photo studios and accessories and at the ground level there was the IMM supermarket for traders and members. In the mid 90s, the place was like a ghost town because most Singaporean did not fancy the idea of having to own an IMM member card before patronizing it's stores.

In late 90s and early 2000, Giant was among the main tenant and this hypermart was able to pull crowds in for it's cheaper products compared with other supermarkets. Then in 2000, Capital Land revamped it by adding more outlets, stores and made it so successful that on any weekend now, you have to drive around just to look for parking space. Parking here is among the cheapest in Singapore, with the first 3 hours FREE.

Look at this beautiful exterior lighting that is occupied by Esprit Singapore.
