TD25 - What Will You Defend?
Did you hear the siren yesterday? It goes off every year at noon on 15 February, a reminder of how Singapore fell to the Japanese in 1942. Singapore commemorates Total Defence every year on this day. But this year, on its 25th anniversary, it's engaging the public in a different way. Instead of telling you, it's asking you. What you will defend?
We saw the event and exhibit yesterday at Suntec City. It even had a musical, which was not too bad. There's a boatload of activities too. I liked the posters of Quentin Pereira (still yet to try out his restaurant) and Yip Pin Xiu, the swimmer with muscular dystrophy.
Nadine sitting at a wall of pledge cards - it's one of many.
Here's Jolie's card on what she will defend. Nadine's card is somewhere out there too, but we couldn't find it - they had so many cards!
Nadine and Jolie had a ball on the life-sized board game. I had a hard time pulling them away from the colourful squares. All in all, it was a fun day out.
