Singapore NDP 2007 @ Marina Bay Part 9

August 5th, 2007 by Wai Loong (Add Your Comment)

We’re Counting Down to Singapore NDP 2007!

We’re really counting down to NDP 2007! In less than 3 days, we’ll be celebrating Singapore’s 42nd birthday!

For the past weeks, I’ve created a series of NDP 2007 highlights – Part 1 through 8. Seriously, almost everyone knows what’s coming for this year’s celebration. So does that means I won’t be writing any more for Part 10?

For some time, I’ve been thinking hard myself too. There aren’t anything more to write about for now right?

That’s what I thought…


I’ve found further evidence of people selling NDP stuffs on eBay.

This time, it’s a music CD…

Okay, it’s no big deal actually.

Perhaps that kid need some cash?

Why do I say that?

I was watching “Home Run – Pao Ba Hai Zi- ?????” produced by Jack Neo this evening… and I was very touched by the kids who fought over a pair of shoe.

Opps… it should be pairs of shoes if we are to include the soccer gang.

Although I don’t live in Kampong, it was seriously very touching. It was about a pair of young brother and sister who live in hardship when they were young. Their father is an odd job laborer and their mother is pregnant.

Once, while picking up a measly can of white rice for the family, the brother lost his sister’s shoe after having it repaired. He was completely devastated.

The story hence revolved around that lost pair of shoe. The family was so poor and it was impossible for them to buy another one. It was very sad to see the siblings suffer much by sharing a pair of shoe (the brother’s) to continue with school. Both kids were even threatened to be expelled from school for being late.

The ending? I guess I’ll let you watch it yourself!

It has a very profound and very meaningful ending.

Without our shoes, we know where our problems lies. With our shoes, strangely, we don’t know where our problems are…

Isn’t that a reflection of our life?

Those words echo in me as I still remember my mentor’s words – “The universe always gives you what you need, not what you want.

Think about it again the next time you feel frustrated about not having your way.

Okay, so what does that mean?

Remember the CD on sale on eBay? Yes, that is what exactly what I mean. Sometimes, that little money may not mean much to you, but it’s everything to some people who cannot afford.

So, I don’t have any videos to show this week since I haven’t found anything meaningful yet.


Please feel free to drop me one and have a wonderful week ahead! 😉
