Video: Happy 50th Birthday, Singapore!
Happy 50th Birthday Singapore!
I am a Singaporean born here in 1964.
Singapore is a rich place. No, I’m not talking about money. It is culturally diverse, interesting, vibrant, ever changing, steeped in tradition while always looking ahead.
We’re not just the little Red Dot. We’re like a red rubber ball. We’ll keep bouncing, no matter what. We roll with the punches. We make things work.
A few years ago, I started documenting Singapore to capture its diversity – not just Marina Bay Sands, the skyline, the Merlion and such like – but the fullness of what we have. It’s an ongoing project on this blog (www.streetsingapore.com.)
I’ve put a few of my pictures into a video with the classic “Home Truly” and this year’s SG50 song, “Our Singapore.”
I may or may not be here during SG100. If I’m not, raise a toast on my behalf.
