< Media Invite >
By now, most families should have received their NDP funpacks. Our Hip Hop brothers collected their own Funpack sometime back. We were fortunate enough to collect many Singas through collaboration with NDP related events (2015 NE3, Mobile Column, and NDP Funpacks packing)
The usual contents in a NDP Funpack are flags, mineral water, and biscuits. The moody emoticons from the message-cards are unusual and limited edition! Pardon Boon Xin, as she has a habit of drawing 🙁 when she meant 🙂 ooops.
It is a huge logistics undertaking to churn out and deliver 1.2million NDP funpacks across Singapore. Thanks to CSSCOM (Combat Service and Support Command), soldiers painstakingly ensure that every household can enjoy National Day Parade, even if they are not at the Padang.
We had an opportunity to experience human-conveyor-belt at Kranji camp.
No automation, pure manpower, endless bags! No aircon.
The kids from SengkangBabies and Cheekiemonkies deserved a shoutout too!
If you are tired, just take a rest. It is no joke for the kids to stand solid two hours without resting.
Super proud of the kids! They really give their best to ensure all Funpacks are properly packed. They even pack extra water for some Funpacks 🙂
Video (Link): Kids were perspiring but no one wish to give up until our line reach quota of 1000!
We wished to thanks NDP Organising committee and Nuffnang for the Fun invite. We had an opportunity to experience first-hand all the hard work behind the scenes. It is all human connections, heart and perspiration to bring the goods (and hopefully smiles) across. Happy Birthday Singapore!
