The Jets were too fast for me to capture. Only the slow flying Chinooks and Apache then can capture. [laugh]

Wah, good million-dollar view from your office!

 

My wife and I have been balloting in vain for NDP tickets for the past 7 years as my mother-in-law likes to watch the parades live. Hopefully, she gets to realize her wish this year.

That is not the only BS thing about this annual event.

 

What I find hilarious is how whichever venue is chosen, it is then touted as the most appropriate choice.

 

Choose the Padang. Wah, the choice is no horse run, very good very good.

 

Choose the Floating Platform, Super choice, clap clap clap.

 

Choose the National Stadium. Very meaningful, pat each other on the back, minister smile smile. 

 

Then the high flyer in charge will go on TV and say how this year's NDP will be different from past NDP, but invariably same same. Which I think in fact is what keeps people coming back, especially the familiar songs.

Around there lah. Usually about ten rehearsals before the actual itself. The ndp preview and the one before the preview are almost the full thing besides the fireworks.

I think due to security concerns they will really limit the number of seats this year. Not to scare anyone or spread fear but do enjoy yourself if you happen to get the tickets.


The chosen one will bring balance to the Force...I mean Singapore. Even star wars do not reserve "the chosen one" to a sith lord or a jedi or a wookie.

Then the BG running the show will eventually resign from Mindef and embark via a private or public route.
