This is pretty random. Random things go through my tiny brain every now and then.


The Singapore Pledge

We, the citizens of Singapore
Pledge ourselves as one united people
Regardless of race, language or religion
To build a democratic society
Based on justice and equality
So as to achieve happiness, prosperity & progress for our nation


We used to recite this every day in school. I did it for a good 10 years. Ok, I admit, at (many) times I just lip sync. I have no idea how it’s being taught in school now. During my time in school, no one explained to us what the pledge means (not that I’ll be interested anyway). Sometimes, just sometimes, we tend to forget what we recited for 10 over years.

I remember they made this part of the National Day songs… maybe they should make a techno version this year.
