National Day 2014

It’s Singapore’s 49th National Day next week and the kids managed to catch one of the rehearsal parades with my aunts. One of my aunts got the tickets from her colleague. I have never successfully balloted for tickets in my life and I really wonder how some people get to go year after year without fail!  It’s been ages since I attended a parade and I’m not particularly keen to go but it’s really for the kids.

The photos are taken by my aunt and I think the kids had fun even though Adam was scared of the fireworks. Just one thing: why are there people not dressed in red & white? It’s National Day, for goodness sake, people should make some effort to dress appropriately! My kids even had red & white Rainbow Loom bracelets. Those who show up in anything other than red and/ or white should be banned from future National Day Parades!

    I have never balloted successfully for NDP tix too (despite using the entire family’s IC numbers)! Sean will be going with Foops for the actual day – got the tix from the Bighearted Awards!
