Nara Thai x C.O.W. at iLight Marina Bay

The lions were taking a leisurely evening stroll along the waterfront after a long Sunday of voluntary work. They were hoping to catch some action at the iLight Marina Bay - Asia's first sustainable light art festival that showcases innovative installations, alongside a mini light show, using recyclable materials and energy-efficient light technologies by creative talents from around the world. It was a family affair with kids and elderly folks delighting in the interactive segment of the festival. Adults were equally amused by some of the more cheeky installations.   

So beary adorable... ... by Taiwan's Uno Lai.
#WeHeartLight by UK's Light Collective.
  Professor Charles Xavier of the X-men will approve of this
cerebro-looking installation.
Mini bazaar takes place during the weekends. Vain pots can grab selfie sticks
This is a popular spot for tourists to capture the waterfront cityscape.
A walk through pop-up Pasar Bella sees a different mix of tenants
and a greater variety of grub during the weekends.
Live juggling act.
A pretty song bird belting out jazzy pop tunes.
The lions grabbed a whole grilled squid for $10 at this izakaya joint.
One of the more reasonably priced grub here.
No picture of squid as it was devoured too soon.
High society burger in a casual setting.
The classy Bacchanalia leaves its uppity Masonic Lodge
for this breezy pop-up spot by the water. Nice!
If you are craving a burger fix, avoid the long queue at
Omakase Burger for a well-executed Bacchanalia Burger
and Umami Fries ($20).
At the stroke of 8, the mini light show commenced.
Everyone scrambling to get a good spot.
An ethereal image appears above the water.
Never smile at a crocodile... ... by Bibi from France.
The teddies are alive with colour once darkness sets in.
Interactive Floating Hearts by a group of artists from Spain.
Speech Bubbles with quirky quotes.
Aptly titled, The Guardian Angels are here to provide relief for
the island's drought stricken chaota plants.
We spotted The Travelling C.O.W at The Promontory nearby.
They are currently having a collaboration with Nara Thai to bring
you some punchy flavours from the Land of Smiles.
Thai chef joining the team to feed hungry folks.
Soft Shell Crab cooked Thai style with a side of
prawn paste chicken and white rice ($11). Not too bad
given the constraints of the mobile set-up.
Try their gao gao Thai iced milk tea as well.
