    I should be going down on 28th. But dunno where to take the photos from. I am thinking of capturing the floating platform as the backdrop with the fireworks in the foreground. any suggestions?

    ken..u were there as well ah?? w ya van or BM? i was running circles around it as well..damn shitty.

    it really doesn't make sense to make pple keep moving...as it'll cause the jam and cause inconvenience to the very residence who complain about it. they wanna stay there, they have to put up with heavy traffic at such ocassions.

    and the most pathetic FW ever...RIP, national stadium.

    Once glance at today Sunday Times and you can see how pathetic the fireworks was.

    it was shockingly disappointing and embrassing such them use such tiny flares to

    bid farewell to our National Stadium.

    Spoke to the TP as well .... and going in circles around there like most of you bros here for the national stadium fireworks. In the end, gave up. And judging from the news, glad I went home. They should consider demolishing the stadium like how the people in US does it....by blowing up the pillars for the structure to collapse. Sure will be nice for photography.

    TP said condo people complain we are disturbing peace. If that were true, that is some snobbish residents there too.

    I am surprised that many of us here are not aware of SNOBBISH people around, and there are more and more.... sadly... humanity drop to a new low... and lets hope that they are the minority...

    Maybe the residents should complain to MINDEF that the F-16 and chopters flying above their residences during those NDP rehersals are disturbing their peace as well.

    I am sadly aware actually with 67000 millionaires in SG now, bound to have more snobbish ones created . But there could be many other conclusions to that saga yesterday as TP are out in full force to make a fast buck also. I just take what the TP said with a pinch of salt too. I did see the tow truck making good business of towing a car away from there.
