Singapore Turns 50

Can you spot the red and white Singapore flags on fanciest public housing blocks called The Pinnacle at Duxton? Took a photo as we were driving along on National Day which falls on 9th August. 

Almost half the people were in red to mark the celebrations. Doesn’t look too crowded in this picture, but trust me, the malls were packed with residents and tourists wanting to catch  a glimpse of the festivities or just soak in the atmosphere.

Most people watch the parade at home while having durian parties (bumper crop of durians this season so prices have gone down). Either this or they have taken advantage of the long 4 day extended weekend due to the public holidays and left the country for a holiday.
