OF A PIECE OF HISTORY

 
Well, it doesn’t get gazetted as a national monument for nothing. The iconic art deco wall fronting the modern architecture of The Cathay is a piece of history that dates back to 1939.

OF CONCRETE AND LUSH

 
This is another hot spot for photos. Fallen leaves on concrete ground, with lush greenery and lights in the background, take it in the day when it’s glistening under the setting sun, or at night when the lights are up, different vibes, similar level of appeal.

Made from wooden planks from the former National Stadium, this bench is not just an artistic bench, it’s got quite a story to tell too.

OF MODERN LINEAR SEAMLESS BACKGROUND

 
The shop front of Leftfoot is another picture perfect photo background. You can’t miss this unique feature wall situated at level 1 of the mall. This stylish photo spot has been around for a number of years now, but in our opinion, underrated and ought to be appearing more on insta space!
