As usual, couldn't get tickets to watch NDP at the National Stadium. Not even the preview. I much prefer the old system whereby people had to queue up for tickets than this new balloting system. For the former, at least there's some hope. For the latter, hope's close to none~
However, managed to get the pre-preview (8th July) show tickets from cousin's friend who's a performer or what. It was printed Family Day on the tickets. Went down to Hang Ten to buy their official NDP red t-shirts with the word "Singapore" printed on them and wore it straight to National Stadium. It was indicated on the back of the tickets that there will only be light fireworks~ Haiz i suppose i can't really ask for much. Better than nothing! I was happy enough!
All the perfomers can only get this pre-preview show tickets this year, perhaps due to the overwhelming response for the balloting. This is the last time NDP is being held in the National Stadium after all. Back when i was in Sec 1 and performed in the choir (My CCA is not choir, by the way. -_-"), i could at least get the preview tickets~
I'm going to miss the old National Stadium. Spent 4 happy months there in 1999.
Here's some pics i took at the pre-preview show~
*Took this pic while i was walking*
We were given these small packs in which there's mineral water, a Singapore flag and those clapper sticks which we had to blow up ourselves~

*And to my right...*
*This performance was recycled. Saw this exact peformance in the exact same venue~*
The sun was scorching hot! But everything is still worth it! ^_^ Unfotunately, the digicam went out of batt before i could take any pics of the night performances and the fireworks! Nevertheless, had a great time still~ ^_^
Happy Birthday, Singapore! ^_^
P/S: Updated a pic which i've forgotten about in the previous entry~
