Every year, it is a must for every country to celebrate ever y significant day whether it is a bad experience or good or perhaps it is a success or defeat. Why? This is because it is part of history – the past events that can never be replaced, altered or edited. Every August 9 marks the most important day for all Singaporeans. This is the country’s National Day – a day that the nation achieved independence from Malaysia.

The National Day was first held at Padang in the year 1966. This year, the country will celebrate its 48th day of independence. In the past decades where Singapore was not freed yet, they took their problem as a challenge instead of plunging themselves to the problem. Because they accepted and won the challenge, a sweet triumph was obtained by the country.

When August 9 hits the Singapore calendar, the city changes its appearance – from a vibrant city to a patriotic one. In the entire country, you will see national flags on almost all establishments which includes business firms/buildings, convenience stores as well as public houses.
