This morning, we woke up in time to hear the SCDF sirens at 9am. "Turn on the TV, quick!" I told the wife as I was brushing my teeth.
I listened to the Proclaimafion of Independence read by the late Lee Kuan Yew. It hit us right in the feels. It would have been nice to hear him read it in person.
Then we sang the National Anthem and said the Pledge, some of us still in pajamas.
The wife had bought matchy matchy SG50 polo t-shirts for us some weeks ago. When she first mentioned it, I said, "Wah, so expensive the t-shirts."
But it was nice to see the family dressed in red and white. And so I took some family photos to commemorate the occasion and to make it worthwhile spending all that SG50 money.
Our family is blessed to have Singapore as our home. Here's to the next fifty years.
