Live Well. Laugh Often. Love Much.

Will You Stand With Me?

When I look at my Nadyas squabble over even the pettiest things in life, I often shudder because the noise is unbearable most of the time.

YAKETY-YAK, YAKETY-YAK.

The norm is, they will fight over anything and everything. But despite it all, I force myself to stay out (read: turn a deaf ear) most of the time because I really want them to work out their disagreements and differences themselves. Well, at least I TRY to stay out of their daily petty arguments unless they get out of control, and the arguments turn into cat fights instead. MEOWWWWWW.

I will always repeat the same litany over and over again nevertheless.

“Ladies, you girls are each other’s best friend. You only have each other, and we are a family. Your job is to defend each other against all odds, not tear each other down or prove who is right or wrong all the time. If a dispute happens, it should be in defense of each other.”

(Of course I have to explain in layman’s terms to them. Hehehe.)

And that’s exactly how I feel too about being a Singaporean. 

Let me firstly ask you.

ARE YOU PROUD TO BE A SINGAPOREAN?

WILL YOU STAND WITH SINGAPORE IN GOOD TIMES AND BAD?

21-DAY CHALLENGE WHAT?

This is where the fun begins. 

Ready?

Okay, what I am going to do for 21 days is to tweet/share one challenge a day.

Your job is to participate, and complete the challenges together with me.  Yes, I am going to try to complete the challenges too, but I want you to join me!

Let’s challenge each other crazy!

Once you have done so, you need to respond to me with pictures if possible via the following means to prove that you have completed the challenges:

  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Facebook
  • Email

So what will you stand to win once you have completed at least 10 tasks/challenges?

AN iPAD MINI (WIFI)!!!

Oh yes, I have been given the task of choosing the lucky winner myself, and of course I am going to choose the participant who is the most creative!

SO TIME TO IMPRESS ME & GET YOUR CREATIVE JUICES FLOWING!

Remember, you need to complete at least 10 tasks and show me the evidence by 17 February 2013!

You know, I am extremely proud be born a Singaporean. As cliche as it may sound, this is where I belong and nowhere else. Sure, the cost of living here is pretty high, and it’s all about competition here. BLA BLA BLA. But I think it is solely my responsibility to keep upgrading myself, and to keep doing the best for myself and my family. I determine for myself how committed I am to the nation, and how confident I am in the future of my country. Sure, there are certain eyebrow raising issues every now and then which we have to face, but does that give us every right to condemn or criticize our country and the government? We need to take ten at times.

We do not only STAND UP FOR SINGAPORE on National Day. Sure, that’s when we will REALLY feel the most patriotic, and that is also when we will sing the National Anthem with gusto, but what I am trying to say is that patriotism begins with us, every single day. There are so many ways to show how proud we are to be Singaporeans through our daily activities and interaction with others. It does not necessarily mean we have to sing the National Anthem daily or serve National Service before we can be patriotic.

By the way, how confidently can you sing Majulah Singapura?

Sorry to say this, but some of you cannot sing it for nuts still even after almost a lifetime in school! :S

I might just challenge you to sing it for me, you know?

So should I include it in the 21-day CHALLENGE, you think? 😀

Hehe.
