Our SG50 Jubilee Weekend

Happy birthday, Singapore!

Happy birthday, Singapore!

We kept ourselves rather busy over the National Day weekend! On Friday, we headed to Gardens by the Bay East to catch the RSAF Black Knights in action. We didn’t have a very good view there and also got soaked in the rain! In hindsight, we weren’t very prepared for this little outing.

soaked!

On Sunday, we tried again but this time we made reservations at Stewords Riverboat and had a fantastic view of the Black Knights before heading inside for lunch. It’s so amazing how the planes seemed to fly so close to us!

In the evening, Anya went to the Floating Platform with our friends who had an extra ticket while Adrian, Adam and I slummed it near the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre. We didn’t have a great view of the screen or the sky or the fireworks but we had access to proper toilets and to decent food! The three of us had a blast soaking in the atmosphere with the crowds.

Happy 50th birthday, Singapore! I don’t know if I’ll be around for SG100 but you really know how to throw a birthday party!
