    The day is for celebrating Singapore 50th birthday.

    Going overseas is not something a proud Singaporean would do do in such as an auspicious day.

    This is a once in 50 years event. Got money can overseas everyday.

    Temples will not be open on that day.

    You have to find a tree to sit under to meditate.

    No need money to celebrate National Birthday everyday.

    Just raise national flag and sing national anthem every morning.

    Celebration should be in your heart.
