I hope that Singapore can be a more understanding society, and social media a friendlier platform. As long as the child admits his mistake and learns from it, we should forgive, without forgetting the takeaway lesson.
A netizen has shared another disappointing Tamil translation fail by the government, this time with a "gibberish" translation of the words "OneNationTogether" in the 2017 National Day Parade (NDP) tickets.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore and National Day Parade (NDP) 2017 Executive Committee have issued a ban on flight activities for kites, captive balloons and unmanned aircraft like drones near selected areas near the NDP parade area.
The NDP committee is investigating why the National Stadium's domed roof failed to light up with the Singapore flag during the fireworks finales on National Day. This comes after popular NDP items like the Red Lions parachuting team and the fighter jet flyby were canned due to the closed roof. The Committee tried hard to put a positive spin to this hiccup by stating that "Celebrations still went on smoothly, and the NDP 2016 Executive Committee is heartened by the spirit of Singaporeans both at the National Stadium and at home celebrating our nation's 51st birthday"
A brisk walk around my Neighbourhood This morning via the Parks Connector sent unequalled shock waves down my spine as I admired the various NDP banners in my daily morning routine to be ActiveSG! Today is MON 01 August 2016 and our 51st National Day is only 8 days away and yet Such SERIOUS mistake (2014 instead of 2016 ) has been publicly displayed outside Innova JC perhaps for nearly a MONTH!
This photo was taken by my wife just before NDP preview. She was a bit late and also ended up at the wrong side of the stadium. This kind soldier offered to carry my daughter as it was a long walk to the correct entrance and my wife had to carry some stuff. This kind of acts should be the ones everyone share on stomp or whatever social media platforms instead of criticising a smelly soldier sitting in the train.
