This is my country, this is my flag,
This is my future, this is my life
This is my family, these are my friends
We are Singapore, Singaporeans


umm... basically the Big 4 National Day songs:
We are Singapore (above)
Stand up for Singapore
Count on me Singapore
One people, One nation, One Singapore

For the record, I have received my PR (Permanent resident) status
in August, and I do like Singapore/Singaporeans. If I didn't why would
I live here! :lol:

My comment about "unathlethic people" isn't meant as a mean
spirited comment. It's just that everytime I head to East Coast Beach
Park there's always someone roller blading and smashing into trees or
me! :haha:

One of the only places in the world where celebrations and
holidays for Christians, Muslims, Hindu's and Buhddists are observed
and respected! :) Muliti - culturalism ! :yeah:

You win some, you lose some. As widely reported by the media, we topped the Maths and Science rankings for both age groups (not sure which ones). But it would definitely be better if the children here were more balanced in terms of sports and academics.
