Singapore’s National Day 2007

Posted in Blogroll, Events, Life on Saturday, August 11, 2007 by Colin Quek

Every August 9th is set aside to celebrate the national day of the Republic of Singapore. Since its independence 42 years ago, Singapore has grown from a tiny fishing village to a prospering major cosmopolitan city.

Having always been at the forefront of many industries, Singapore (affectionately known as Lion City) has won international accolades in the arena of: Airline, Seaport, Education, Governance, etc. Usually attaining the #1 or top 10 spots.

This year’s celebration is another major breakthrough for us. For 13 months we build a floating platform large enough to hold 27,000 people. Again this is a world first.

With Prime Minister Lee’s confidence that we will grow 7% to 8, Singapore is poised for another great year ahead. As the anthem goes…

Majulah Singapura (Malay for Onward Singapore)

Without further ado, here is a simple snapshot of us as we congregate to wish Singapore a very Happy Birthday.
