National Day

For some its a welcome break, for others its another working day.

But for 25,000 odd Singaporeans, its a day to remember, as they gather together at City Hall to celebrate Singapore 40th year of independence.

Singaporeans from all walks of life preparing to celebrate Singapore's birthday

I was one of the lucky 25,000 to lay my hands on the much conveted tickets.

In short, the whole parade was a sight to behold. Set against a backdrop of skyscrapers, the whole show ws a celebration of Singapore success since it gained independence 40 years ago.

The array of lights setting itselves against the beautiful skyline

The freefallers, the aerial display, the military march pass, the mobile column, the mass display. The clockwork precision of these performances bear testament to Singapore's commitment to be the best in whatever we do.

The aerial salute.

The lean, mean fighting machines from the Army. I pity the NSFs though. .

But more than the fanfare and pom, I couldnt help but to feel proud bout my motherland.

Enjoying myself to the fullest

True, there are some constitutions and policies that i cant see eye to eye to, but overall its a great place to live and work in.

At the height of the whole parade, almost everyone was at the peak of estascy

At the height of the show, i can only heave a sign of relief and look up the heaven, and be thankful that I am born here in Singapore, and not in some war torn country.

Oh, by the way, one crescent moon and five stars was on the sky during the parade itself.

This is a sign from heaven.

This must be it.

This is what made all the waiting in the hot sun all worth it.
