LCSG National Day relax ride 2012

Easy relaxed and non-"Ra Ra" kind of National Day ride at Punggol Waterway. Andy very kindly brought a whole bunch of flags for all the riders who came. Every one wore Red and the mood was quite fun. After a simple safety briefing, we rolled slowly to the PCN towards Seng Kang direction. Also sang a happy birthday to Singapore, 47 Birthday!

Punggol Park was crowded with 2 running events happening. Everyone in the PCN who we rode past, turned to look at the convoy of bicycles decked out with SG flags.  We greeted the joggers, walkers by with "Good mornings and hello, happy National day" The smiles and pride was infectious. Singapore is really changing and I think is for the better.... at least I am seeing really cool SG spirit every Sunday... :)
The simple and relaxed pace allowed folks to chat, catchup and poison each other on the latest bicycle gadgets. We stopped at Punggol Park KPT for breakfast and retraced the route back to Punggol MRT. Another year has passed and for all the Quirks and issues...Singapore,  we still love you! Happy 47th Birthday!

Also attached in this blog, a very special song by 4 Singaporean... the song name is "I still love you"... it is really moving and this was what they wrote... 
Sometimes, it is not easy to love: whether a person, a place, or even a country. What does it take to love? Do we love only when things are perfect? Or even when things go wrong.
"I Still Love You" is a creative collaboration between Monster Cloud Films, Blotch Studios, Richopus Music, Galvin Sng, and many others... involving a cast and crew of more than 70 people, and featuring the heartlands of Singapore. This is Singapore, as we know it. This is our song for Singapore, the place where we belong.
Happy National Day, Singapore! 
P.S: I Still Love You
