Happy 55th Birthday, Singapore!

Happy Birthday Singapore! This year's national day celebration is unique in that the huge displays of lights, participants and performances are mellowed down to prevent crowding. 

The atmosphere and emotions are also not high as we all know that the current situation that Singapore is in is not something to be happy or celebrated but celebration of national day has always been around and this year, celebrations have been dispersed into the heartlands for people all around Singapore to experience. 

For me, I love celebrating national day as I am proud of Singapore and the achievements we have been through. Wearing red and seeing others wearing it too symbolises us as one people gathering to celebrate the nation's birthday. 

Today, my family and I got up early to watch the morning show and then hitting the streets to watch the mobile column zoom past as we thank and wave to the army and front line workers. 


It is a really great idea for them to drive to the heartlands and for the Red Lions to parachute near Ng Teng Fong and Sengkang hospital. 

Looking forward to the night show later on, though the celebration has been downplayed to prevent huge masses gathering, I am sure deep down, we are proud of how far we have come and know that the journey ahead will not be easy as well. 

Its been a tough year and even tougher time ahead, many thanks to the front line workers and continue taking care of yourself both physically and mentally!
