Singapore National Day Parade

It's nearly here — Singapore's National Day Parade.

On Saturday, we will observe Singapore's National Day, marking the day of the nation's birth. This is the 43rd National Day for this still-young country.

The National Day Parade is always a big event in the island state, and it is quite difficult to get tickets. But it is possible to hang out downtown and see some of the grander events (fireworks, fighter jets flying overhead... things like that). Last year, I spent National Day at Sentosa, and even at that distance, we were able to see a good portion of the sky-bound parts of the National Day Parade.

It will be interesting to see if the television viewership is down this year, with the Olympics newly underway on that day. I feel pretty confident that there will be plenty of attention in Singapore focused on our local festivities.

I am not sure if you can send them from overseas. This is the same as the postcards I sent you via snail mail some time back.

I have sent you one already this year, I think.
