Happy 50th Birthday Singapore!

Happy SG50!

Happy Golden Jubilee, Singapore!

This year, Singapore celebrates her 50th year of independence and we have been basking in the celebratory mood island-wide. Almost everywhere we go we see signs, banners, posters wishing Singapore Happy SG50. Very happy sight and I like that very much.

I am proud to be a Singaporean. There is where I was born, raised, educated, carved a career and now a place that I build a home with my husband. Because of the political stability, good domestic security and transparency of policies, Queenbels is able to start and have a chance to grow.

Thank you very much to the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew and his team, for building us this wonderful nation.

Happy Birthday Singapore!

Majulah Singapura!

Support Team Singapore!

I want to do a shoutout here for our Team Singapore.

Please go support our sportsmen and sportswomen at their events at the 28th SEA Games Singapore!

It is not often that we have such a large scale of sports event in Singapore so it is really worth the time to watch some of these competitive sports live. Tickets are available here.

If you want me to name one sport that I like, it will be swimming. I did swimming solely for exercise purposes for a couple of years, during and after my tertiary education. Almost every weekend, my cousins and I would meet up and swam. We could spend almost 3/4 of the day swimming and then had late lunch then make our way home. I was quite built up at a point when my shoulders were quite broad and I had toned arms.

The school holidays are coming and I think this is a good event to attend on your own for students across all levels and for the parents to bring their younger children. It is a good chance to show them the various sports, how the sports are played and get to know our Team Singapore.

There are very awesome Sea Games merchandises too that I think is worth to collect. Some of the pins feature our landmarks and festivals. And I have got myself a Happy National Day Pin at their store outside Ngee Ann City.

And last but not least, the Songs of the Games are really good! Especially ‘Unbreakable‘ which really impressed me and I have it playing on the repeat! Full of fighting spiriting here!

All the best Team Singapore!

Cheers,
Shirley

Thank You Mr Lee Kuan Yew

Dear Mr Lee,

Thank you for everything you have done for Singapore and her people. My friends from overseas said to me that it is my good fortune to be born in Singapore and be in a place where we have good education system, political stability, clean, safe and equality. I agree with them wholeheartedly. It saddens me that you cannot be with us at the NDP 2015 and celebrates SG50. We will remember you and share your story with our next generation.

Love, Shirley

I pondered awhile if I should share my thoughts above in this space; the official blog of my business or on my personal platform. This blog is afterall a space where I share about the merchandises my shop carries, where I share fashion tips and all other relevant content. Then it dawn on me that a good part why my business exist is because I am in Singapore. Singapore has good infrastructure, political stability, good social security, a comprehensive legislation and transparency of the policies. These are very important factors that affect business operations.

Thank you for building a Nation that allows us to dream and makes realising our dreams possible. Thank you for the good education system that empowers me to develop thinking skills, learn hands-on skills and gain valuable knowledge, which did not have to cost me a sum beyond my low-income means.

During this sad period, the least I can do is to observe silence on all our official social media platforms during the National Mourning period. Just like how I observe solemn when my Grandfather passed away nearly two decades back.

Farewell, Mr Lee.
