Having lived in Singapore for the past three years and experienced diverse cultures and lifestyles, we are truly blessed to call this beautiful country our second home.
Singapore celebrates 49th Birthday at Marina Bay #nationalday2014
Yesterday, we feel so lucky to be invited by our friend Rene to join him and his boss witness the National Day event at The Ritz-Carlton Milenia. He message 6 of us on Viber and I was so excited! At first, I thought traffic would be an issue because of the road closures and the crowd but happily we didn’t faced any problems. Sadly, some of our friends didn’t make it, but we met new friends Felicia (his past colleague) and XL (his boss).
The hotel is just a walking distance to Promenade MRT station. When we reached the place, I was surprised because from the 19th floor lobby, you can immediately see the amazing view of the colorful lights happening at the Marina Bay. Inside the room, you can watch the fantastic view of the event comfortably. XL, switched on the television to hear the sound from the show, too. 🙂 The display of fireworks was one of the highlights of the National Day which we really enjoyed. Every year, we look forward watching the parade only on TV but this time we’re so grateful to watched it live for the very first time.
Everything is perfect! A great atmosphere and united crowd. You can see lot of people wearing red and white, colorful and lively.
After watching the beautiful fireworks, we headed to Red Dot Brewery at Boat Quay for drinks. Let’s toss!
I’m so happy to celebrate Singapore’s National day first time outside with friends.
Looking forward to watch this wonderful celebration again soon.
Thank you, Singapore.
