August 9th is National Day in Singapore, a sort of birthday celebration of Singapore’s independence. It’s a public holiday (so even though semester just started yesterday, we already get a day off!), and every year there is a big parade (which, I’ve heard, is very, very difficult to actually get tickets to) and a big fireworks display!
I spent National Day with the lovely Glen, and here are some photos of our adventures!
IT WAS LIKE GOLDEN GLITTER RAIN.
We went to see the fireworks right beside the stadium where the parade was held, which meant that we had the best view for fireworks, but also that it was impossible to leave the area for about an hour afterwards! The roads around are closed because of the parade…
Happy birthday, Singapore! Your party was very nice. Thanks for having me here.
