Giving Back To Keep SG50 Going

NDP may have passed, but the national celebrations still ring true. National songs, agendas and SG50 still resonate around the island. With that, here’s a music video titled “Snow Flower”, a National Day and charity project theme song. Give the song a listen, and keep the national spirit burning. It’s SG50 all year round and […]

Free Transport On National Day

If you’re heading out this National Day, you’ll be able to travel around the island for free. The free public transport will take effect on August 9th and last the entirety of the day’s service. This includes all Night Riders and Night Owl bus services. Commuters will be able to waltz in and out of […]

Rejected SG50 Song Is Pretty Good

This year marks a Jubilee year for Singapore as she prepares for her 50th birthday. There have been many SG50 submissions be they songs, or short films. One song in particular was rejected not because it didn’t meet expectations. In fact this song was well written and well arranged. It was rejected only because it […]

Singapore education reform on the horizon

This year’s NDR goodies should give parents, teachers, and students a reason to rejoice! But is this really the case? Let’s unpack and see what we have here: 1. Including home-schoolers, madrasah and overseas students in Edusave coverage (previously only for those studying in MOE-recognised local institutions).  It’s great that the government is starting to […]

Merlion goes hmmmmm

Since my award winning performance on the 9th of August, the NDP organisers have requested that I pen a short note on my thoughts on the parade. After all, I’ve been silently sitting here in the same spot for so long, observing like a creepy stalker. But I have so many thoughts on so many […]

What’s in a birthday

The manner in which a person celebrates his or her birthday or how others celebrate his or her birthday perhaps reflect the kind of person he or she is. Are you the party-lover, who likes to be surrounded by people to give you hugs and presents, or are you the type who likes a quiet […]

NDP songs: time to call it quits?

If you’re like me, your social media feeds from last week were inundated with wave after wave of people making fun of the latest NDP song, “One Singapore”. To be honest, I thought some of the comments were quite harsh, but also really funny. I mean, parts of the song really do sound like someone […]

Strawberry Generation

What makes Singapore?

PM shared his growing up memories, memories that made him proud to be Singaporean, during National Day Rally. What are some of your own feelings about Singapore? I wrote in my introduction of myself on this blog, that I care for Singapore because it has shaped me to be the person that I am, and […]

Hello

What does 5 stars and a moon mean to you

Was at a National Day Observance Ceremony, and heard this speech made by Mr Ong Ye Kung, guest-of-honour of the event. He needs no introduction to most people who knows GE2011. In his speech he outlined his own thoughts about what our national flag represents. We all know that the crimson red stands for universal brotherhood, […]

Hello

Happy National Day, Majulah Singapura!

“It was like any other Monday morning in Singapore until the music stopped. At 10am, the pop tunes on the radio were cut off abruptly. Stunned listeners heard the announcer solemnly readout a proclamation – 90 words that changed the lives of the people of Singapore and Malaysia:   “Whereas it is the inalienable right of […]
