August 9th was Singapore national day.
Today was not a holiday for me,
but after work, I went to see fireworks with my friend.
In Japan, there are lots of firework festivals during summer.
But in Singapore, even though it is a tropical country and it is summer throughout the year,
they only have fireworks on special occasions like today.
They should do it more often!
I went to Marina bay to see the fireworks
and there were heaps of people out there to see the fireworks, just like us!
Half way through the fireworks,
my friend and I started to worry about going home.
If we stay till the end of the show, we might take a long long time to get home!
Imagine all those people rushing to one MRT station and trying to squeeze in to a train...
What is more, tomorrow is friday and still need to wake up early and go to work...
So we left the place pretty early.
We got there around 8 and left there around 8:15.
We hardly stayed there but we did enjoy the fireworks!
And I was so relieved when I finally reached home.
(Trains were already quite packed even though we left so early)
Lastly, it is a mentos!- Singapore national day version
Freebies at the firework event!
I have missed it, but my housemate who also went to see the fireworks gave it to me as a souvenier.
Thank you :)
