This year’s National Day is going to be different due to the Covid 19 pandemic. We won’t be having the usual National Day Parade at Padang or The Floating Platform for the nation’s 55th birthday. There will be a parade and ceremony in the morning at the Padang follow by an evening show at the Star Performing Arts Centre.
But one thing that is still around is the NDP Fun Pack. The fun pack will be given to every household in Singapore. Initially, there was a huge outcry about the NDP Fun Pack. There was even a online petition to opt out of receiving the pack. I can understand why because there’s no point in having a NDP Fun Pack when you are not at the parade itself.
But I think the complaints died down after everyone sees the contents of the Fun Pack. This year’s NDP Fun Pack is a reusable grocery bag that is foldable into a small pouch. There are 20 beautiful designs done by artist with disabilities in partnership with SG Enable and Primary 5 students. There are 12 items in the fun pack including hand sanitisers, thermometer, reusable face masks and surgical masks.
NDP Fun Pack 2020 is no fun at all. They are all essentials. And it is the best Fun Pack ever.
If you haven’t collected your NDP Fun Pack, you can do so at all Community Clubs from now till 2 August 2020 (excluding Public Holiday). Visit this website to find your nearest collection centre. There is also an e-discount booklet online for great deals and offers by local businesses.
And by the way, Yeo’s has prepared some “big surprise” for those people who received the special edition Chrysanthemum Tea in their Fun Pack. More details will be unveiled on National Day itself. (I’m feeling a bit left out cause mine is the ordinary can)
A lot of industries are being badly hit by the Covid 19. Tiger is currently rallying the Singapore community to help our local F&B. With every $10 you contribute, Tiger will give you 2 Tiger or Tiger Crystal free. You can redeem them at participating outlets after the Circuit Breaker when the outlets reopen.
Tiger hopes to raise $300,000 through this initiative. All proceeds will go directly to the participating coffeeshops, bars and pubs. Tiger has contributed $100,000 to kickstart the initiative and another $600,000 worth in beer product sponsorship.
So let’s do our part to help our local F&B here. Cheers!
It’s the end of day 3 Circuit Breaker in Singapore. 25 more days to go. Singapore just reported 287 new Covid 19 cases today. And it doesn’t seems to be slowing down any time soon.
This Covid 19 is really a global catastrophe. Many plans are being disrupted. Lots of adjustments need to be made. I know the Singapore Government is doing its best to help everyone. Unfortunately for me, I fall into the cracks and don’t qualify for most of the assistance available. I guess I’ll just have to ride out of the storm with whatever I got.
Keep telling myself that all these are a lesson. A lesson to prepare myself for future challenges. Dolor hic tibi proderit olim (Someday this pain will be useful to you.)
We will see through this. We will overcome the challenges like we always have in the past. Hang in there everyone.
