This December, the open-air carpark at Grange Road is transformed into Singapore’s first and largest creative retail playground, Flashbang Singapore.
Open from 9 to 30 December, it features carefully-curated food and beverages, a retail market, interactive exhibitions, live music performances, creative workshops, an arcade and more.
You might have noticed that your Instagram feed has been taken over by an abundance of photos of neon lights at Flashbang Singapore.
That’s right, Flashbang Singapore has some of the prettiest and most Insta-worthy neon signs and we’ve compiled a checklist for you.
Shine On Neon
This one’s right at the entrance. You can’t miss it.
2. Take The Risk Or Lose The Chance
Inspirational quotes are everywhere. Well, at least this one is not on a scenic background with a hipster font.
3. All We Have Is Now
All you have is now…till 30 December to take photos of this neon quote. #ShamelessPlug
4. Single, Taken, Hungry
Hungry all day, everyday. This one makes a good Tinder profile photo. A perfect opportunity to show the world your priorities. Repeat after me. Food is love, food is life.
5. Bang Bang
By Jessie J and Nicki Minaj ft. Ariana Grande? Or the “universal round” used by the previous generation of NSFs? You decide.
Here’s a fun fact for you. Did you know that Nomophobia refers to the irrational fear of being without or unable to use your phone? Do you have nomophobia?
7. Angel Wings
Angel wings may be cliché but they’re always fun to take photos with. How many different poses can you make, making sure that the angel wings look like they’re sprouting from your back?
8. Penguin In A Scarf
NOOT NOOT! But no(o)t really. Who doesn’t like penguins? And he (or she. We don’t assume genders) has a scarf! *high pitch squealing*
9. Party Pig
You’ve heard of Spider Pig. Now, get ready for Party Pig. Always the life of the party, friends with various club owners, never settles, afraid of commitment and a heavy drinker.
Whoever came up with the idea of turning a lightning bolt into a gorgeous unicorn, deserves a medal. Fabulous AF.
11. Puppy With A Bowtie
We don’t know where this good pupper is headed, but we wish him well. Because he is the best boy. The nicest boy. The cutest boy. He deserves a treat.
12. The Duck With A Bowtie
Don’t trust this duck. He’s a quack.
13. Shooting Hoops
Look at this effortless basketballing. 888 points? Maximum huat.
14. Racing Arcade Machine
This one’s cute. It took us a while to figure out what this one is. But we got there.
15. David Bowie
RIP David Bowie. This is one of our favourites mainly because of that power stance. We are living for it.
16. Finger Heart
The all-too-common Korean finger heart sign. Saranghae, readers.
17. The Lady On A Mission
One of the neon light installations at the entrance. Where is she going? Where did she come from? Is she just a small town girl? Living in a lonely world?
18. The Cat With A Balloon
Do you see that cat doing an almost-perfect split? Amazing. 8/10.
19. The Man Who Can’t Stand Properly
We don’t know what that man is doing. Honestly. Is he falling? Is he breakdancing? What is it? Please tell us because we need to know. For science.
20. Arcade Gaming Machine
We like this one. Though it does look a little like a jackpot machine.
21. Liang Po Po
This is our favourite neon light installation. Liang Po Po is Singapore’s iconic granny played by Jack Neo in the old Chinese variety TV show.
This neon light installation sends waves of nostalgia to all of us who grew up watching Liang Po Po.
Flashbang Singapore is the coolest and most vibrant place to be this festive season. So banish your FOMO and don’t miss out on this colourful neon spectacle and retail market before it ends on 30 December!
