The tickets are only limited so people better get their tickets if they want to experience the golden jubilee first-hand. For those who want to enjoy the parade at the comforts of their homes, they have to expect a great show. Here are some things that we can expect for this year’s National Day Parade:

  • Tribute: National Day Parades will not be the same without LKY but this year, we will still enjoy his presence through the prepared tribute. LKY surely wants us to move on and be joyful that we reached this far.
  • Aerial Show: The Black Knight’s special show will be a marvel to watch. The special line-up prepared by Black Knight will represent the five ideals of LKY in founding Singapore – equality, justice, progress, peace and democracy.

  • Theme Song: There will be another song aside from “Home”. This year, Dick Lee is back with his song “Our Singapore”. We will hear it soon and we still have time to memorize the lyrics and sing along.
  • Fun Pack: Every household here shall get a Fun Pack. Fun Pack includes commemorative items, snacks, interactive items, nostalgic items and publications. This year will be different. We do not need to rush and ambush the volunteers just to get some.

The National Day Parade will be held at Padang and The Float at Marina.

chewing-gum-crime-singapore

  • The Chewing Gum Law – Most foreign visitors who have plans or have landed in the country believes that when you have violated this law, you are already a criminal. In truth, you are not. As a matter of fact, you are only given a fine plus a community service depending on the offense. It would only become a crime if you use chewing gum as your tool in commiting crimes.
  • Other Minor Offenses – Here in Singapore, it is a mistake if you disobey the laws that are imposed most especially the minor offenses that they say. Most of these offenses are not that strictly implemented contrary to what is said in various website. Like for instance, not flushing of toilet bowls in public toilet. This is now unguarded by authorities since there is an automated system that is placed in those toilet and are automatically flushing after a person pee or poop.

What Pat has to Say

If you are into branding here in Singapore, you surely know (or heard) Pat Law. Pat Law is the institution of branding here in Singapore. If you really know her struggles, she will become your idol. She started her agency way back in 2010. She did most of the paper and legwork at the beginning. Everything paid off for today, she has employees that will help her achieve more goals.

She also expanded. She has an office in Bangkok and she is planning to set up another one in Hong Kong in the coming days. Her clientele includes Ben & Jerry’s, Sephora, Nike and United Overseas Bank here in Singapore.

She is considered one of the coolest female here. She shared some insights for those who dare to dream:

  • If you need help, ask for it. Learning to ask for help is not a sign of weakness. In fact, it is a sign of humility. When you need help, it won’t hurt you to ask for it. If you need someone to balance your accounts, hire an accountant on temporary basis.
  • Do not act like a newbie. If you act like a newbie, you are only giving yourself an excuse to make mistakes. If you act like the boss, your steps will be carefully measured because you carry the weight of responsibility.
  • Learn to say no. If you are greedy, you will take every opportunity that comes your way. That is not good. If you know that you cannot deliver the results your client wants, you should know better by saying no.

These are just some of her words. She is indeed an inspiration for those who dare to dream.
