Happy 42nd National Day, Singapore!

To all Singaporeans a very happy 42nd National Day. I would like the share the following song that I have been listening over and over again for the past month.

As much discontent as we have of our Gahmen, Singapore will always remain our home. We will always have the chance to pull down useless MPs every 5 years but the Little Red Dot will always be there for us.

HOME -  Kit Chan (1998)

Whenever I am feeling low
I look around me and I know
There's a place that will stay within me
Wherever I may choose to go

I will always recall the city
Know every street and shore
Sail down the river which brings us life
Winding through my Singapore
(Chorus)
This is Home, truly
Where I know I must be
Where my dreams wait for me
Where that river always flows
This is home, surely
As my senses tell me
This is where I won't be alone
For this is where I know it's home


When there are troubles to go through
We'll find a way to start anew
There is comfort in the knowledge
That homes about its people too

So we'll build our dreams together
Just like we've done before
Just like the river which brings us life
There'll always be Singapore

(Chorus - repeat 2X)
This is Home, truly
Where I know I must be
Where my dreams wait for me
Where that river always flows
This is home, surely
As my senses tell me
This is where I won't be alone
For this is where I know it's home


(For this is where I know, I'm HOME)

家 - 陈洁仪 (1998)

每一次我感到徬徨
不自禁就会回头望
我知道心中有个地方
一定会有一盏灯

照亮每一颗黑暗的心房
指引未来方向
沿着生命河流向前航
就能登陆理想


(Chorus)
我的家收藏
我的欢喜悲伤
只要点燃希望
梦就会自由飞翔
我的家给我
一双坚定翅膀
我的梦不论在何方
一生的爱唯有家


再也不会感到徬徨
不会再失意回头望
我要用心中一点烛光
燃放千万户辉煌

要让繁华的城市更灿烂
世界和平共享
全凭生命河流来导航
一起登陆理想


(Chorus - repeat 2X)
我的家收藏
我的欢喜悲伤
只要点燃希望
梦就会自由飞翔

我的家给我
一双坚定翅膀
我的梦不论在何方
一生的爱唯有家


(世世代代温暖的家)

This song has always been my favorite National Day song. Good lyrics, good singer and unpretentious. Not like the recent ones, so.... I don't know, commercial?

I find the remake version of this year National Day song closer to heart.

Ed: Yeah, perhaps due to the fact that I too am away from Singapore, the song struck a chord with me.

Kelly: Aiyoh, the remake is so bladdy corny.... cannot take it...
