    Go there and squeeze with thousands of people? Then after that squeeze with thousands of people in bus?

    What's so good about NDP?

    Not everyone shares your same sense of pessimism...or should I say pragmatism?
    It's the nation's birthday and there ARE people out there who would want to be part of the celebrations.

    aiyoh.... i for one every year ballot for tickets but no chance to go..haha.
    not often we get the chance to go to a big parade cum celebration...with flybys and fireworks right? So even if you are not patriotic also can go.

    let me share this inside information with you guys. and i am sure u will be totally furious about it....

    Did you know ?

    That 5566 and other taiwanese stars will be coming to Sg to celebrate NDP 2004?

    And because of 5566, this particular FC ( Fan club President) went to get 200 NDP Actual day tickets, which i think has pissed alot of pple off, and they are not going there to celebrate Singapore's Birthday, BUT these people are there to see 5566 Only !! and i mean it !! Imagine.... 200 ticks being snapped up BY 1 PERSON !! and summore someone whos there to see just 5566. Imagine 200pple being deprived from going to the NDP just for these selfish fans....

    totally shitty....

    it's not too difficult when you liase with the right authorities, infact I believe as many as 200 or more goes to the officials within the army alone.

    NDP participants are given 1 (if LUCKY)to 2 (if VERY lucky) as well, and by then the amount that is released to the public is pathetic.

    well... after thinking that NDP was all huff and puff and no stuff, i'm very glad to be able to see what goes on behind the scenes of the relatively short 3 hour spectacle. and one thing for now, i'm very glad to know that there are many more people who would spend hours of their waking hours at the rehearsals and so on...

    it's not as simple as you think it is. i believe this experience i'm having now will be very fruitful when i go back to teach in school next year...

    please substantiate your claim. if you wish to persist, i may be able to forward your complaint to the relevant authorities. from a personal standpoint, no one gets any tickets, participant or not. every one has to ballot for their tickets. the only people who do not need to ballot for the tickets are the performers themselves, and the politicians.

    I wont be watching the parade from the stadium. No space there to set up tripod and take pics of the fireworks.

    I will be going to the parade! I'm soooooooooooo happy! Maybe every year it seems to be about the same program, but it's really great to celebrate the nation's birthday with so many fellow singaporeans.

    Not sure abt u guys, but I do know one thing:

    U definitely can snap pictures of happy faces in the crowd.

    Goodie bag? Good to have (especially for buggers like me who dun like to carry a supply of water around), but not necessarily a must (read: extra burden when u wanna make the quick getaway or when u're squeezing abt).

    That's what you think, you never serve army before? I'm not complaining, things happen often in the army, and normally... well I shall not elaborate, those who participated before will know.

    Not too sure about that. Last time when NDP was around the corner, nobody even wanted to go. Everything changed when the goodie bag was introduced. I'm superficial? Heh. My my, that's what I potray when I don't sound too patriotic eh?
