Today we celebrated Singapore’s 50th birthday. I watched the whole National Day Parade on TV. I couldn’t help thinking that it’s a pity LKY wasn’t here to see it. Every time the camera panned to his empty seat, there was a lump in my throat.
On the other hand, I was glad to see Kit Chan made an appearance at this year’s NDP. NDP doesn’t feel complete without her (but there are reports that this may be her last NDP appearance 😦 ). She was the last singer and even though there were many other big stars who appeared earlier, I just kept waiting for her to appear and sing Home. She really made the song hers and no other singers who attempted this song had the same feel.
