Happy 49th Birthday Singapore!

Happy Birthday Singapore
Happy 49th Birthday Singapore! This year lady luck is with us because I was fortunate to win four National Day Parade (NDP 2014) tickets through the balloting. We were very contented even though it was only the preview tickets on 02 August 2014 and furthermore it was also our very first time attending the National Day Parade. And we waited eagerly for the big day ever since we collected the tickets a month before hand.

The seats allocation starts from 4pm and by the time we reached the nearest MRT station at Esplanade (according to our colour zone) around 4.15pm we saw crowds moving in wearing their red and white outfit to celebrate Singapore's Birthday.

Before proceeding to the specify colour zone shown on the entry tickets, we were told to collect our Fun Packs from the counters near the entrance. More information about the fun packs can be found at the end of this post.

In line with this year's NDP theme, the shows focus on four different Acts featuring the can-do, caring spirit of our people plus reflecting the love, passion and courage of our nation who overcome personal challenges with care and support from family and community.

[NDP2014] The National Day Parade Funpacks!
This year's National Day Parade Funpack has a colourful “NDP 14” print on the front and it contains many items such as a Singapore scarf, miniature flag, light stick, foldable fan and tattoo sticker, drinks, snacks and etc. Beside the goodies, this funpack is also water-resistant and it can hold a weight which is more than 6kg too.

Once again, we would like to wish Singapore a Happy and Prosperous 49th Birthday! Hope we could managed to obtain the NDP2015 tickets next year so that we would be able to celebrate Singapore's 50th Birthday!
