SG50: Walking Down 41 Floors

Date:  Aug 9, 2015

Very eventful evening.

This is where we came to watch the NDP fireworks.

We are at 41st floor @ The Sail.

I guess, everyone has the same idea in their head.  We actually have to queue up to get to the apartment at 41st floor.

And it is not a short queue.  There are actually 100-200 people queueing.

But is all worth it.  The wait.  The long walk from the car park.  

All the near by car park are all full by the time we reach there.  So, I have to park at the Maxwell Link that side.

We are like picnic.

But indoor picnic.

From here, we then know how “PACK” is spelled, how “CROWDED” is pronounced.  Wow.

I was shock to see so many people.

Look at the floating platform.


You can see the helicopter clearly from here.

This is where they fire the big guns.


The tanks.


Here comes the fireworks.  Nice.


This year is SG50.  No wonder so many people came to watch it.  It is a big event.


More fireworks.


 The few minutes of the fireworks that I captured.





Of course, we sing the birthday song for Singapore.

The kids are happily playing there too.

What goes up must come down.  And when they come down, they have to cross the road, queue and go up One Raffles Quay to get their car.

We try to wait for the lift to come.  But it seems that the lift stop at every floor.   And when it get to us, it is fully packed.

So, we decided to walk down the stairs.

Yes, from 41st floor.

And we finally made it.

As a reward, we pay only $2.40 for the car park.

And that wraps up our exciting NDP experience.  Happy Birthday Singapore.  Happy SG50!
