Geylang Serai Light Up 2021

There’s no hipster food bazaar, but Geylang Serai festive light-up 2021 still provides for a charming evening walk.


Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting is here. With that, Geylang Serai once again comes alive with dazzling decorations and geometric light-art.

It’s a poignant experience strolling under this year’s illuminations, to be honest. Regrettably, the Geylang Serai illuminations were one of the main casualties last year when Singapore went into semi-lockdown. While back this year, there’s also no massive hipster food market and festive goods bazaar. It’s just the lights and those only.

There’s solemn contemplation to be done here; how the combined efforts of the whole world aren’t enough to put one virus in its place.

That said, I suppose there’s no reason to be too despondent. Besides, self-reflection is encouraged during Ramadan. I’m not Muslim, but I’d be thinking about how life would be, should be, down the road.

Geylang Serai Lights 2021

I started my evening at Wisma Geylang Serai, and of course, there are decorations surrounding the complex.
The same motifs are used for the street lights, but if you wish to examine any up close, here’s the place.
The Joo Chiat Complex junction. Nasty of me to say it, but without the crowds from the bazaar, this was much more enjoyable to photograph.
My favourite shot for this Geylang Serai visit. “Tunnels of lights” never fails to uplift me.
The facade decorations at Joo Chiat Complex are lovely after dark.
The lights are not restricted to street illuminations or mall decorations. Here are the fairy lights outside Haig Road Market & Food Centre. (There’s a certain chaotic beauty here, LOL)
Another tunnel of light shot. This one was taken at the bus stop near the food centre.
I’ve shown the main festive “gate” in my feature pic above. (It’s outside Paya Lebar Quarter) Here’s a closer look at it.
Salam Aidilfitri 2021!
