On this day, let’s be grateful for the precious harmony we have, for the courage and toil that went into creating it and the effort it takes to sustain this land of miracle we call HOME.
Mohamad Latiff (Jurong Central)
Wishing all the boys and girls in Singapore a Happy National Day, and for them to enjoy their holiday!
Elliot Wang (Jurong Spring)
As per what Mr Lee Kuan Yew said in his Proclamation of Singapore – that Singapore shall forever be a sovereign democratic and independent nation, founded upon the principles of liberty and justice, and ever seeking the welfare and happiness of her people in a more just and equal society.
Leong Mon Wai (Taman Jurong)
I hope Singaporeans will continue to play their part in building a prosperous, harmonious and safe country for everyone, regardless of race, language, religion or even sexuality. The pandemic has recently taught us that we, as Singaporeans, living in this Little Red Dot, have to be there for one another, especially in times of difficulty.
Nur Khalidah (Bukit Batok East)
Best wishes and happy 57th birthday! I’m so blessed and proud to be a part of a prosperous and glorious nation.
Salbia Ali (Yuhua)
Wishing that Singapore stays strong, safe and prosperous.
Edwin Teo (Yuhua)
Wishing no more Covid-19 virus.
Teo Heng Swee (Yuhua)
What do you love most about National Day?
Every year, my family and I would stay home and enjoy watching the NDP parade together. I enjoy singing the National Day Parade songs together with my family – we love Home by Kit Chan very much.
Melissa Ng (Jurong Central)
The parade, it’s wonderful to see everyone dressed in red and white, united as one. I enjoy watching the different uniform groups marching by, knowing that they are always here to keep our country a safe place. And, of course, I love the fireworks too!
Gurmindar Kaur (Clementi)
I love to see the soldiers at the National Day Parade!
Jayelon Lee (Bukit Batok East)
Zaclyn Leong (Taman Jurong)
I love the National Day songs, the National Day Parade and performances. As a P5 student, I am looking forward to the NE show where we can watch the NDP rehearsal live at The Float @ Marina Bay.
Jenabelle Ong (Bukit Batok)
I absolutely love our wholehearted community participation in celebrating the significance of National Day. Whether it is the PM, MP or CM (common man), we all celebrate together as one nation regardless of race, religion, gender or age, with a lot of spontaneous joy, pride and spirit. We enjoy the National Day celebrations to the fullest, while also remembering the sacrifices that our nation’s founders made to give us the peaceful, successful, multicultural and sustainable Singapore that we have today. Love you, dear Singapore!
Vidya Kumar (Jurong Spring)
I love the fact that everyone comes together as one, despite our race, language or religion!

I love watching the National Day Parade and watching the fireworks with my family.
