Happy 49th Birthday Singapore! I've been humming and singing National Day songs on and off the whole day. Patriotic? Nah... Just love Singapore too much. This photo is a throwback of 3 years ago when I painted our Singapore flag on my short stubby nail beds haphazardly with no manicure tools.
I happened to tap into Instagram just now and found out that our Mediacorp darling Fann Wong has just delivered a National Day baby. How apt! Congratulations to Fann Mommy and Christopher Daddy!
It took this celebrity couple five long years to have a baby and I'm so happy for them that when I read the article on their joys and heartbreak of their baby-making journey, I teared uncontrollably.
There isn't a 2014 National Day Parade theme song this year. Only a mash up version of We Will Get There (2002 NDP theme) and One People, One Nation, One Singapore (1990 NDP theme) sung by young local singers. Not too bad but I do not quite like how I could never hear the chorus for We Will Get There since that portion was replaced by One People, One Nation, One Singapore.
Original: We Will Get There by Sun Yanzi (2002 NDP theme).
Original: One People, One Nation, One Singapore (1990 NDP theme).
Other than these 2 songs, there are so many NDP songs which I like coz they bring back lots of memories of my younger days. Singapore is really very different now than from the past and NDP songs certainly stir the nostalgia in me.
