ION - The upcoming luxury shopping mall.

The name "Orchard Road" does not bring to mind a muddy lane in a plantation, but of indulgence shopping.

This is ION. An upcoming luxury shopping mall. This is a photo of the construction process.

It was previously called Orchard Turn, and here's an old photo taken Sept 4, 2006.

Talking about Shopping, some say the 8 week long Great Singapore Sale causes a fatigue effect. Do you think so?

Orchard Rd (Singapore itself, actually) in the late 70s/early 80s was great. Satay retaurants under trees where now you'll find office blocks, the car park restaurants. Shame it go so sanitised
