Happy Birthday to Singapore

Its the 41st birthday of this tiny little island we call home. And lucky me, Mom got 2 tickets to this year's NDP. I started Jaywalker Sock #2 so I can have something to knit along the way. We set off at 2pm and reach there after 3pm. Every audience received a goodie bag, which includes drinks, tidbits, clap-o-sticks, mini fan, cap and touch light and etc and etc.

Slowly we waited as the stadium gets filled up with people. This is my second time in this stadium for something event like this. First time was about 10 years ago during my secondary scool days. Mom was kind of excited as this was her first time in this stadium. This was a very memoriable event cuz this 33 year old stadium is going to make way for a sports hub, which means no more "Kallang Wave" and the last NDP to be held within this premises.

Going to the real thing made so much different to the other NDPs which I had watched on TV over the years. Everything is so alive! The performers, lightings, laser effects and sounds. I may not have a bird's eye view of the parade, but the feel of being part of NDP make this year's parade a whole new experience for me. Last but not least I shall leave you with a short clip of the parade's climax.
