Singapore National Day

Singapore celebrated 49 years of independence this last weekend with massive sales all over the island, seems that the national sport here is shopping. A 50 percent sale here just brings the price down to normal prices in the rest of the world though so we didn’t take part in the frenzy, but we did take a picnic down to the gardens by the bay to watch an impressive fireworks display on Saturday night. Us and half the island, but completely organised chaos as only Singapore knows how to do. Kids zoomed around on scooters and rollerblades, we drank some beer and feasted on bacon sandwiches (it was a special occasion after all) and watched about a gazillion dollars explode over the downtown skyline.
