Pledge taking

Posted by Dawn at Sunday, August 09, 2009
I really enjoyed this year's National Day Parade. It was simple and meaningful, unlike other years where there were just too much acting, songs and dances. This year's was straightforward, to the point and reflective of the past.

It was made even more meaningful when they prepared all Singaporeans (including those living abroad) to say the pledge at 822pm on 9 Aug 2009. So there were shoppers who just stopped all that they are doing at that time to say the pledge together! We could actually feel a sense of pride and unity.

As for my family, we did that too!

I have to compliment Caleb for actually imitating us. I feel he is quite NE (National Education)-trained at his age because just these few days with all the advertisements on National Day and with all the Singapore flags being put up, Caleb has since learnt the word, "Singapore" and even said it many times throughout the day. He also loves to hold the flag.



And here's Danielle waving the flag as well...
