I feel most Singaporean when...

Dear Singapore,

You're home to me.
I know I'm home when I see the crescent and five stars.

When I saw our country flag flying high at the opening ceremony of the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in August 2010, I felt a sense of pride and joy.

When I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be one of the 2,400 torchbearers for Journey of the Youth Olympic Flame (JYOF) - Singapore leg, I felt this was Our Moment. Let's blaze the trail.... It was a superbly amazing and awesome experience as a torchbearer, with fellow citizens cheering you on.
I'm proud that Singapore is the host city for the inaugural YOG.

Witnessing Singapore's progress and transformation as I grow up together with this nation.
- Singapore Flyer, The Float @ Marina Bay, Helix Bridge, Marina Bay Sands, Merlion, Esplanade and many others...
I'm proud of Singapore's achievements and what it is today.

How can I not miss the food from Singapore:
~ Hainanese Chicken Rice
~ Laksa
~ Roti Prata
~ Bak Chor Mee
~ Lor Mee
~ Satay Beehoon
~ Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee
~ Nasi Lemak
~ Bak Kut Teh
~ Char Kway Teow
~ Wanton Noodle
~ Fried Carrot Cake
~ Satay
~ Otah
~ Rojak
~ Curry Fish Head
~ Chilli Crab
~ Bak Kwa
~ Rice Dumpling (Bak Chang)
~ Kaya Toast

And with a mug filled with Tiger Beer, here's a toast to you - Singapore. Yum... seng!

I'm proud to be a Singaporean. Thank you Singapore!


Cheers,
