Lovely shots!

The flying flag adds another exciting dimension to the skyline!

Yah I figured NDP is just round the corner as fighter jets can be seen and heard over the city again, rehearsing for 9th August.

If the flag is bigger, the impact will be greater. But, I supposed the helicopter / chinook can only handle flag of that dimension?

Think NDP 2007/8 is planned at Marina Bay on a floating platform. Should be spectacular.

For now, it's the last year at current National Stadium. So, bear with it.

Nearly 50,000 Singaporeans among the first to watch this year's NDP

8 Jul 06



By Wong Siew Ying, Channel NewsAsia

SINGAPORE : The National Stadium came alive with the voices of some 50,000 Singaporeans who were among the first to catch this year's National Day Parade.

Many of them were there to support family members performing in the parade.

42-year-old Amelyn Ng is clapping to a different beat this time.

Having participated in four National Day Parades with the Singapore Soka Association, she is sitting out this year's show.

That is because Soka is putting out an all-male team.

But Amelyn says she is not disappointed and she has been cheering for her husband and two sons throughout their rehearsals, be it at home or the stadium.

"It's important to work as a team. But now that I'm not performing, I'm learning to support them. That made them very happy and proud of themselves," said Amelyn Ng.

Besides supporting family members out on the field, they were entertained by songs from the combined school choir and cheers led by some 400 motivators.

"I am bringing the kids here so that they can join in the fun. And my niece is performing today," said Jane Li, who was there to watch the rehearsal.

"I am proud to be here because this is the last year Singapore will celebrate National Day at the National Stadium. This is the first year my twin daughters are performing in the National Day Parade," said Julaidah Hamid.

On July 15, another group of Singaporeans will be able to enjoy the parade experience. Some 55,000 Primary 5 students and their teachers will be here at the National Stadium for the National Education Show.

Organisers say this year's show promises lots of colour. The show will kick off with the item called "Our City of Colours", performed by SOKA and the People's Association.

And like any other National Day Parade, the fireworks display is not to be missed.
