10 Aug 2014 – Admiration & Respect to LKY
Sat: lunch with Henry at Riverview Tandoor*** 2nd level at SIN Flyer. OK food, a decent place with a view in the comfort of AC to get ready, and only a few minutes to walk to the parade location.
40 lines of security checks running efficiently and smoothly
The area leading to The Float@Marina Bay where the NDP is held.

The crowds and the heat!
Salute to LKY who turned SIN from a 3rd world to 1st world nation that I feel proud to be in. He has not missed a NDP since the 1st NDP in 1966. Just being there whole-heartedly to take my hat to the only politician I admire and respect.
And the show must go on…
Fireworks never fail to impress and pix credits for the most beautiful NDP shot to Athena TAN who is a profession photographer and one of the best in SIN.
Post NDP: Sunday
Appreciations to bro Les for informing me and to Gel for posting it in FB. Usually read the news online and read the papers in the library later in the evenings. Looks like I have been spotted by the press, The Sunday Times in what Garry mentioned as my outrageously outfit but all in good spirit and fun. Doubtful if I will attend another NDP in this life’s journey.
Thanks to everyone in FB for liking the outrageous disguise. Rather surprised that I was recognized 🙂 🙂
Thank you dear niece JenLeng for sharing another pix from NDPeeps’s photo. Would have not known if not for her. Seems like the press are on to me for being a good citizen 🙂 🙂 🙂
Edited 14 Sep – many thanks to Aileen for the attachment from the Army news. Looked like the media could not get enough of this grandmother celebrating her 1st NDP to the fullest and probably the last NDP that she will go out so whole heartedly as the heart grows weaker everyday – hahaha!
One must understand human nature. I have always thought that humanity was animal-like. The Confucian theory was man could be improved, but I’m not sure he can be. He can be trained, he can be disciplined – LKY
