NDP 2013 - One SingaporeAugust 09, 2013
Yayyyy!! Happy National day everyone!!!! :D
Happy birthday Singapore and everyone enjoying a long weekends this week (because of Hari Raya as well)! Aren't you guys happy and excited hahaha! I'll be blogging about the NDP preview show that I went with mummy few weeks back in this entry but before that, have you guys watched our latest #BenRanAway video (which is related to national day as well)???? :D If you haven't here you gooo....
We actually recorded the video really fast and it's pretty much an impromptu one and somehow the clips like not enough for this video because initially we didn't want to just do this year theme song but other past years NDP songs too (so we also recorded them) but end up never use hahahaha siao one us! -_-
So lucky and happy that I'm able to go for NDP preview show with mummy a week back!
I'm so happy because I wanted to go so much that I even tweeted about it but nobody wanna give me tickets HAHAHAHAHA! Luckily Ran had 2 tickets from his army, so we are able to go! It's been consecutive 3 years straight since I went to watch NDP preview show!!! I really love to be there to watch because the experience is so fun and hyped up which you might not really get by watching from the tv!
I always feel very touched when watching NDP show one (even when I watched it on tv) and I almost had some tears in my eyes when they sing this year theme song! Hahahaha! I know you must be thinking I'm very kuazhang but I'm not hor!! Really!! Always have goosebumps when watching NDP show!
It's like I'm very proud how far Singapore has come and also very happy that all of us, different races, all come together to celebrate this big day! Not saying (or acting) like I'm super patriotic but I'm just thankful how safe and stable Singapore is, as compared to some other countries.
I think most of you people might think this segment is boring...... Well, I actually only appreciate it after I went through army, but now I hope everyone would also give all these people doing this marching contingent some credit and not just think that it's boring and skip their part and not watch it! They train as hard as all the other participating acts too. Try watching, it's really quite nice also one!!! :)
Pretty view from the float!
