I heard from my someone that Japanese (I’m not sure maybe GE) released the bulb that consume much less power than a regular one and is very brighten.

Does someone has an idea where can I bought this kind of the bulb? Also the bulb cost like $15 or so... expensive.

From the price, I would guess you're talking about the compact fluorescent, which has become quite common in recent years.

As the name implies, it works just like a regular fluorescent light, but uses miniature components and a specially shaped tube so that it takes the approximate shape & size of a normal bulb.
