What We Love about Singapore

For five CCK Town Council volunteers, the objects chosen are: community cats, Singapore Airlines, Singa the courtesy lion, a card holder bearing the Singapore flag and a 2009 National Day Parade (NDP) banner.

Singapore flag card holder – Janica Ng

A card holder bearing the Singapore flag reminds Janica Ng how fortunate and proud she is to be a Singaporean.

The ubiquitous community cats that can be found in most estates – Shammir Karasu

Shammir Karasu said the stray Singapura cats are his object of affection. He added these community cats are something that all of us grew up with and become part and parcel of the Singapore life.

A bag emblazoned with the year of independence and Singa the Courtesy Lion- Jasmine Sim

Another cat — Singa the Courtesy Lion — was put forth by Jasmine Sim as a true icon of the nation, and, in her opinion, one of the most successful mascots ever created. Her bag emblazoned with 1965, the year of Singapore’s independence, is something else that makes her proud to identify as Singaporean.

As for Francis Arokia Mary, there is nothing more satisfying than being involved in the annual National Day Parade (NDP), which she took part in in 2009.

The icing on the cake was having her father and son appear on the NDP banners that were put up all across the island that year, she added.

The iconic Singapore Airlines – Lai Chin Yee

For Lai Chin Yee, it has to be our flag carrier, Singapore Airlines. Though travel has not been possible in the past year with the Covid-19 pandemic, she hopes that a flight on her favourite airline can be on the cards again soon.

Make this National Day extra special! Share with us a photo of the object that best represents your affection for Singapore.
