Happy Birthday Singapore!

Yesterday marked 46 years since Singapore gained independence as a nation.  

To celebrate, there was a plethora (don't you love that word) of things to do such as shop special National Day sales, visit museums for reduced rates, stroll around the marina and at the end of the day, sit back and watch a massive performance spectacular completed with huge fireworks.  And just like Australia Day is a public holiday, National Day is a lovely excuse for a holiday too.

Super fast jets (no idea what they're called) zooming over Marina Bay Sands

Down the bottom, to the right of the radio tower, are 3 helicopters flying the Singapore flag (click on the picture for a closer view)

We spent the day lounging around the pool, eating fresh prawns and drinking beer and then gathering a few friends (6 children and 6 adults!) later in the night to watch the fireworks from our condo balcony.  


Overall a beautiful, relaxing family day to celebrate Singapore's birthday.

    I have lots to blog about including BuBba's 2nd birthday and a trip back home for my FIL's 60th birthday - sadly our trips back home are to Queensland where all the family is and not Sydney :( Although I'm missing Sydney I must admit I'm not missing the yucky winter I keep hearing about lol
