NDP 2016 at National Stadium.
No Red Lions, Flypast, or Big bang fireworks.
However, the best part of the show is watching the kids enjoy themselves.
Singing, Cheering, Reciting the Pledge, Mari Kita (National Anthem Majulah Singapura).
When did they memorised the lyrics (link) for Tomorrow’s Here Today? (I even have problem remembering the tongue-twisting song Title)
Nevermind, kids are showing us Singapore’s future is bright 🙂
Seeing Alethea and Boon Xin enjoying themselves, can I nominate them for the BEST motivators award?
Band 53a crooning NDP 2016’s theme song.
Huge LCD screens all around ensure we never miss any action. Motivators are decked in white to rah-rah the audience and raise the tempo.
We enjoyed all the segments and goosebumps. Nothing like singing favourite Singapore songs together 🙂
Two items are memorable, hand-signing of “Count on Me Singapore!” and Kallang Waves (endless haha).

To be truly successful, Singapore must embrace everyone in the society.
When the Chinook flypast with Singapore flag (look at big LCD ok), sing Majullah Singapura with Gusto!
I want the kids to be proud to be Singaporeans, hope they will not take our Nation’s peace for granted (especially in these uncertain times).
Some folks will get to Pull the Singapore flags up the seats!
Stand-in President reviewing Guard of Honour.
Feu-de-joie (Indoor), super LOUD as the blanks echo around the stadium 🙂
Sky turning dark, but the atmosphere and mood indoor is electrifying.
Police and soldiers file onto the steps, symbolising everyone need to play a part to keep Singapore safe.
Shine wrist band, SHINE! Thousands of little lights will be synchronised off our wrists 🙂
Twinkle Twinkle little stars lit up the National Stadium, so NicE!
Folk hero “Legend of Badang”, and a Singapore Stone 🙂
Story telling, Ah Gong sharing Singapore’s growing years.
2065 Singapore, is that our home in the sky?
Look at the “rolling” multimedia screen below the stage, as children paintings (and aspirations) are projected, the performers form the shape too. Impressive act!
Fireworks seem a distance away (over at Kallang Basin).
Rousing audience, indoor fireworks too! Indoor fireworks feel closer and definitely more impactful! Let us sing patriotic songs together again 🙂
