Totally as happy as striking the lottery! Been trying for years! So, this time round, the NDP is still held at the floating platform, we parked at Suntec City and walked over.

We got seats at blue zone and definitely a good view to me! Reached around 4+pm i think so still plenty of seats! Waited till 530pm for the actual programme to start.

The Kallang Wave!!!!!!! Damm exciting one.. you gotta standby your ass, make sure you get up in time otherwise you will be the one that breaks the momentum. Its fun lah!! Something that everyone can do together and without any guiding!!

quoted from Wikipedia:

The wave (known as the Mexican wave in the English-speaking world outside 
North America) is an example of metachronal rhythm achieved in a packed 
stadium when successive groups of spectators briefly stand, yell, 
and raise their arms. Immediately upon stretching to full height, 
the spectator returns to the usual seated position.

Now the red lions.. its so exhilarating and dangerous!? Pretty hurtful to their legs as well, the free-fall.
