Happy 44th Birthday Singapore !

Congratulations Singapore !!!

SINGAPORE: Singapore celebrated its 44th birthday with a massive party by the bay - the National Day Parade (NDP) at the Marina Bay Floating Platform with an explosion of fireworks.
The parade ( involving more than 6,000 participants performing in a colourful three-hour revue, ranging from lion dances to simulated terrorist attacks repelled by the city-state's armed forces ) , which marks the day when Singapore gained independence from Malaysia in 1965, was highlighted by a mass pledge-taking ceremony at its end.
Over 27,000 people watched the NDP ( National Day Parade ) from the parade stands while thousands more caught the show around the bay area, on television and online.
