Today is the day. Happy Birthday Singapore! This morning, we set off to celebrate National Day at my hubby’s company with all the food I had prepared for the celebration. It was really a sleepless night the previous night with all the ondeh ondeh I had rolled and cooked plus the last minute request from my hubby’s colleague to cook nasi lemak (coconut rice) and to marinate chicken wings for frying. I was so tired and cranky that I vowed to my hubby that I will never do ondeh ondeh again and can you imagine, not a word of sympathy from him. He just laughed.

Though it was not a good morning to begin with for me, it changed when I arrived at the company. The National Day mood was suddenly there when I see all fellow Singaporeans wearing red and white. Our National Anthem was on the speaker loud and clear and there was a huge projector screening Singapore’s past, present and future. The best is that the Australians from the company also joined in to celebrate this day with us. It was just like a mini Singapore.

The whole celebration was well organised with games to play and face painting for the kids. My boys certainly had a good time having their face and hand painted. And the food prepared by all of us was great. It feels like being home with all the local dishes like hainanese chicken rice and mince meat mushroom noodle. The Australians have also prepared their own local food and desert. The mixed fruits with palover and chocolate lamingtons were my absolute favourite. I certainly ate to my fill.

The insufficient sleep was certainly worth it and the other guys work really hard too for the event. The organizer had done a really great job to keep everything going.

It was really a Happy National Day.
