Count on me

Red is the colour of our nation. It is also the colour that symbolize luck. And we were darn lucky to be given tickets to watch the NDP live at the Padang this year! All thanks to R & SY.

It was 15 years ago when I was at the NDP. The unbearable heat still remained etched in my mind. But since it will be Jayden's 1st joining the rest of the nation celebrating its birthday, we thought it would be a great experience for the boy.

J surprised us when he stood up joining in the chorus "Count on me Singapore" and waved the Singapore flag like it was the most fun toy he had.

All was enjoyable despite the humid weather until the fighter planes and fireworks that scared the shit out of our timid boy. Naturally, he demanded us to go home pronto. We didn't even get to see the fireworks finale. :(

Still, we were glad that we were given the opportunity to be part of this mega event of the country. Well, let's see if we still get lucky next year.

All geared up in red

Spectacular sights @ the Padang
