Deepening our Kampung Spirit

Over the month-long Light Up, the public can admire the lights from 7 pm daily.

The Light Up designs have been inspired by batik patterns through the years. The batik weave motif reflects patterns found in basketry and symbolises a close-knit community.

Also at the Light Up is a life-sized traditional Kampung-style pavilion inspired by traditional Malay long houses and other interactive displays such as a six metre-tall Malay gong and a moon and star exhibit.
