Fireworks shooting from rooftops!
A very impressive show and display of fireworks! It's hard to believe that the country puts on such a huge show for 6 weeks leading up to the actual celebration. All just as impressive as the actual day itself. Singaporeans are very proud people, and they have much to be proud of. This tiny city-state-country-island is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. They keep it very clean, safe, educated, but not so much affordable! This country is in the top 8 Most Expensive Places to live in the World. It has been a shock to see the price differences on everything here.
Best deal in town, that we have found, are these $1.00 Ice Cream Sandwiches:
