Not exactly Singapore’s National Day itself (that’s on August 9th), but actually a preview show that is in almost all ways identical to the real performance. Think of it as extra dress rehearsal for the performers and sneak previews for poor souls like me who aren’t able to bribe for tickets to the real show.
Many thanks to Yehong who got tickets for us, even though she allowed an auntie to cheat her of our good seats for lousier ones! We had fun sheltering ouselves with transparent umbrellas and exchanging funpack goodies, not to mention that this is my first NDP in more than 10 years.
By far one of the most fulfilling experiences I’ve had in Singapore since I came back!
