相信我吧,新加坡!

Today marks the commissioning parade for the hundreds of OCTs as they embark on a new journey as officers. Although the rain poured in the late afternoon, they did not succumb to the rain, and continued standing there, proud and strong. I salute the officers for having endured through 9 months of intense military training, which really tested their mental and physical strength and ability as well as developed strong resilience and acquiring leadership skills applicable in their life. I am really proud of my classmates as well as my schoolmates from Hwachong who have managed to take up all the challenges and make it on stage today. Congratulations Shuyang, Woonyang and Jonathan! To the rest who are still in the midst of intense and arduous training, 加油!

During the parade, I heard this meaningful song which practically applies to every men in Singapore, and even women. The title is 相信我吧,新加坡!

我是年青的卫国军 有的是满腔的热血
有的是精力充沛 相信我吧新加坡!

我要用这股力量 献身与新加坡
我要把敌人消灭 相信我吧新加坡!

Speaking of which this song reminds me of another song we used to sing when we were young, especially when National Day draws near. 童话!

我的家在陋巷 陋巷是个好地方
不知世界什模样 只知陋巷是天堂
穿横街 过窄巷 度过童年好时光
不知世界什模样 只知陋巷是天堂
连环书 叮当糖 看街戏 扮新娘
跳飞机 打水仗 东奔西跑捉迷藏
只知陋巷是天堂

P.S Brr, its cooling outside. Shouldnt have rained today, why did the rain have to make my dear officers WET?!  Instead of POP loh, it should be 下雨咯!Pity we couldnt take any pictures with the officers. 😦
