    That's right! It's time to get up and ballot for those NDP tickets! This year's balloting period runs from 12 noon on 25th May till 11pm on 4th June 2006. Application is thru Teleohone, SMS, the NDP website and SAM/AXS Machines. More details can be found at the NDP 2006 website at www.ndp.org.sg.

    In the stadium itself lor. Only bad thing is there's a lot of atmosphere (smoke and stuff) in the stadium, which makes the long exposures look bad. Then if you suay, some balloon will come and block your picture, spoiling it.

    I think the best site to shoot fireworks on NDP is the National Stadium itself.

    But the 'Singapore Fireworks Festival' mentioned is at Marina Bay. Will some of the open staircases @ Marina Square be good?

    Hi

    Anybody organising a trip for the SFF events?

    Last year, there was one organised for the NDP SAF Marina South exhibition, followed by the SFF Portugal team shoot.

    Would be great to do that again this year. Please let all of us know if anyone's organising again.

    Hope to hear good news soon!

    Regards
    Clipper
