~ Fireworks at Sengkang National Day 2010 Countdown Party ~

8th August 2010 - It's the yearly National Day Countdown Party! Since 9pm onwards, we have been hearing the celebration going on downstairs. We took the children down at around 930pm to check out what's going on this year. There are performances including dance and singing, lucky draw, stalls along the side selling food, drinks, clothes, balloons etc. Not forgetting free flags, tattoos and mineral bottles!

Denver & Gladys with their Singapore Flag!

Mommy paid $1 where Denver had a lucky dip and he got a little goodie bag. Gladys wanted balloons and so we got her a flower hat ballon. :)

The main highlight is definitely the fireworks which Denver & I have been waiting for! Our friend & fellow blogger, Andy also brought his 2 kids to see the fireworks!

Unlike the previous years, the countdown and fireworks only start at mid-night. This year, it was much earlier than I expected. They started counting down 20 minutes before midnight. Luckily we were already downstairs and didn't miss it.

I was a little disappointed with this year's fireworks display as it is not as exciting and glamourous. But I cannot complain too much.. afterall we are celebrating within a neighbourhood. ^_^ Denver likes the firework display and I hope Andy's kids liked it too. Happy Birthday Singapore!!!


  1. no wonder I reach home at 00:10
    Fireworks really went off earlier haha.

    Any fireworks (big or small) is the same for kids.. got "pom","flash", "claps" they are content.

  2. Ya! It was always at midnight only. Guess they decided to change the timing this time. I'm sure New Year will have another round of fireworks. :)

    Glady your kids like it. :)
