A Big Dose of Patriotism

Let's hear it for Singapore: yesterday we were chosen as the first host for the Youth Olympic Games in 2010!

In the midst of all the revelry, Rohaizad and I ventured downtown to the Esplanade to attend opening night of the Dim Sum Dollies History of Singapore!

Anyone who thinks that Singapore is uptight should come see this show. Okay, Singapore IS uptight, but for two hours they cut loose! Telling the whole story of this place from discovery to modern times.

There was a traditional Malay woman playing blues harmonica, WWII Japanese Kamikaze pilots singing karaoke while hanging by their parachutes in trees and even jokes about Lee Kuan Yew!

You can watch a clip of the Dim Sum Dollies here.

By the end of the show I was standing with two thousand other people singing and waving a Singapore flag ... yikes!
