Happy Birthday Singapore!

Although the Chinese Olympics seems to be on everyone's mind at this point in time, but today's a special day for a couple of us in London.

I actually heard some national songs being played on the tv's National Day celebrations in the background when I called my folks back home this morning.

I can still hum along even after all these years...

Happy 43rd birthday, Singapore! From a Singaporean in London.

My friend who lives near Washington DC gets free grab at the home of the Sg Ambassador on SND - yummy stuff flown in from Sg !
Those who r members of Sg Club r invited for the feast. Not bad huh ? That was on 6/8. 9/8 is reserved for the big brass from the Pentagon n Capitol Hill.

The girls themselves celebrates again on 9/8 with home made yummies. I'm so envious !

Sg also sponsor Sg Day in NY (park)each year around April. Again free grab n other acitivities.

The Dutch-Sg club held a SND dinner in a restaurant. We split the bills at the end of the evening.
