313@Somerset launched its first ever Christmas Light Show few days ago and I was one of the bloggers to witness it first hand!
Here’s a short clip of how it looked like:
You can still catch the entire Christmas Light Show at 313’s Level 1 Atrium from now till 23 December at 6.30pm, 7.30pm and 8.30pm! Additional shows will be held on Fridays and Saturdays at 9.30pm!

We had our caricature picture drawn by an artist and this is me below:
We had some light refreshments served while we watched the Acapella performance by Key Elements and etc.
Finally, we concluded the day with a sumptuous meal at Brotzeit!
In conjunction with the light theme this year, there will be a Light Art Christmas Card and a series of fun filled activities held at 313@Somerset:
Light Art Christmas Card
Charlie Lim, a renowned Singapore photographer uses his technique of “light art” to design unique Christmas cards for the shoppers at 313! This method of photography uses a single source of light and paints the subject in the dark while the camera captures the image.
Hence, from now till 23 December, the first 80 shoppers each day from 12pm to 7pm who spend a minimum of $150 will have an opportunity to get their photos taken!
Roving Santa and Christmas Characters
Santa Clause, Santarinas and the Christmas characters are coming to
