Skywatch Friday - ION Orchard

Finally ION Orchard opened this week but the below photos were taken last week before they are opened so you can see workers giving the shopping mall a final touch.

The whole mall is so amazing and beautifully built. I love the architectural design of it and at night it glow. You can view the night's photo in keropokman's blog. I will try to take a picture of ION Orchard at night.

The glass bubble you see in the centre leads to the Orchard MRT Station. It looked beautiful.

More of ION Orchard tomorrow in Pink Saturday.

For other sky watchers, please hop over to Skywatch blog.

Gosh, another new mall! Time to 'jalan, jalan' and visit relatives and the places. I think you can be a very good guide for your city now!!

Sunshine Girl, hahaha, Singapore is so small, no need a guide. As long as you know English you can find your way around. Orchard Road is a shopping district, just walked from Ion Orchard (Orchard MRT Station) down to the rest of the Shopping malls. The whole road is filled with malls.

But do visit other areas in Singapore where you can find something different and unique from Orchard Road. :)

I will try to find time to put a slide of all the attractions over here. Next year, look out for the new Universal Studio in Sentosa.

Good Morning Alicesg, Such a lovely mall. That bubble is really interesting and whoever designed it did a very good job. It is really catchy. It is always fun to go inside a new place. I hope you take your camera inside. I am anxious to see the rest. Tea with friends is so much fun and I just love taking pics. I forgot to take a pic of my lunch yesterday before I ate tho. I was so excited about the day and everything I just got caught up in the moment. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to seeing the inside of that mall tho. Get busy clicking. See ya soon. Alicesg don't forget to stop over and say hi to my daughter. Sign up to follow her, she would absolutely love your blog. Country Hugs, Sherry
