The flags have been displayed but August 9th has been postponed.

Well August 9th will still happened between August 8th and August 10th obviously (even though with all that has been happening in the past 2 years I might not be overly surprised if somehow it skipped 🤔) but because we are still on “We-Are-Not-On-Lockdown-Just-On-Phase-2-Heightened-Alert” the whole National Day (aka August 9th) has been postponed to August 21st.

🇸🇬 Happy (early?) 56th Birthday Singapura. 🇸🇬

PS: it’s not even our first “canceled” National Holiday (life of an expat 🤷‍♀️)

Because National Day fell on a Sunday this year, we are off today too.

Selegie blocks 8 & 9 are probably the most photographed buildings in Singapore during the month leading to August 9th National Day 😉

The Government encourages individuals and businesses to fly the National Flag during the National Day celebrations period from 1 July to 30 September each year. The flags on this building however are hang by the city council not the individual household hence why every single balcony has a flag.

HDB fascinates me. It’s such a melting pot of people. There is often little difference between the common area and the private area, front doors are often left open and people take ‘ownership’ of the common area in front of their door.

I still remember when a Singaporean friend of mine told me I could go up in any HDB since it’s public housing…. that changed my perspective of photography in Singapore for ever (but always always be respectful)
