我爱新加坡!We love Singapore National Day 2020

Singapore National Day

我相信大家都应该知道新加坡的国庆日是几时吧?

那些不知道的朋友们,就让我来告诉你们!新加坡的国庆日是在没年的八月九号举行的。那你知不知道新加坡已经几岁了?请在下面留言!

在今天的博客里,我将会提到的东西有两个。第一个是一些关于新加坡的历史和新加坡是怎么在1965年独立(我好像不小心告诉了你们新加坡今年多大!)。我会提到的事其实分为三个部分:

  1.  新加坡早年的时候是怎么庆祝国庆日的?
    How NDP (Singapore National Day Parade) was like in the past
  2. 现在的国庆日是怎样的?
    How NDP is like in the present
  3. 在今年的国庆日,因为有了2019冠状病毒的出现,新加坡会怎么庆祝?
    How NDP is different in 2020 due to COVID-19

I’m sure all of you here know when Singapore’s national day is! For those who are not sure, Singapore’s national day falls on the 9th of August. Do you know how old is Singapore? Comment down below! 

Together, A Stronger Singapore is the theme for this year’s NDP. In this blog, I’ll be talking about 2 things. Firstly, I’ll be talking about how Singapore gained independence back in 1965. (oops, I actually gave the answer to how old Singapore is!)

我们话不多说,直接进入正题!

Let’s not drag on any further and get into the tea!

新加坡的独立故事
Backstory of Singapore’s independence

在1942年至1945年,是日治时期。在1963年时,新加坡和马来西亚成为了一体。但最总,新加坡在1965年因为和马来西亚有很多的意见与冲突,最后分道扬镳。在1965年8月9日,也是新加坡独立的一年

From 1942 to 1945, Singapore endured a difficult period of the Japanese Occupation. In 1963, Singapore merged with Malaysia. However due to many conflicts and dispute, we went separate ways and in 1965, Singapore gained independence. 

早期的国庆日

新加坡的第一场国庆庆典是在1966年举行的。地点是政府大厦前大草场(Padang)。一年一年的过去,新加坡的国庆日也越受新加坡人的重视。也因此,越来越多人参加了国庆日。

直到2003年,因为场地无法容纳那么多人,新加坡政府开启了网上选号制度,如果被选中,才能出席。不同场地的转变,在2006年,政府宣布国庆日将会在2007年的国庆日把场地改成滨海湾的浮动舞台。

The first NDP celebrated in 1966 took place at the Padang. Floats were also one of the biggest highlights in the past. As the years passed by, more people attended the NDP. 

In year 2003, the government introduced the electronic voting ticketing system where Singaporeans had to ballot for tickets in order to attend the Singapore National Day Parade. From the initial venue at Padang, to the National Stadium, year 2007 was when Singapore started to hold its NDP at the floating platform @ Marina.

现在的国庆日大多数都会在滨海湾的浮动舞台举行。每次到8月9号的时候,我们都能看见有许多的人聚在新加坡鱼尾狮公园、海滨湾金沙酒店、新加坡滨海提坝和附近的商场观看在滨海湾的浮动舞台举行的国庆庆典。

The NDP now is mostly held at the floating platform @ Marina. Every year, we can always see many people gathered around the Merlion Park, Marina Bay Sands, Marina Barrage as well as all the nearby shopping centres enjoying the NDP from afar. 

你知道吗?:每年的国庆庆典彩排日,新加坡的每一个读小五的学生都有机会观看彩排的庆典!

Fun Fact: Do you know during the NDP rehearsal every year, every student in Primary 5 from all across Singapore will have a chance to attend the rehearsal parade?

因为2019冠状病毒的关系,新加坡无法像以往一样那么庆祝。我们不能再像以往一样聚在滨海湾的浮动舞台庆祝国庆日。今年国庆日的庆祝方法是,大家都会在家里看直播!

今年的国庆日也把规模缩小了许多。被我这样一讲,是否觉得:“啊那不是很无聊吗?”别怕!今年的国庆日虽然没有像以往一样,但我觉得今年的新的庆祝方式也是很有趣的!如想知道今年会有什么有趣的节目,请点击这里

和以往不同的是,今年,政府会赠送一包国庆礼包个每一户家!礼包里面有口罩、国旗和很多其他的东西!这样听起来是否又去了许多!

Due to COVID-19 this year, Singapore would not be able to hold a grand event like in the past. Instead of gathering at the floating platform @ Marina, this year, Singaporeans will be watching the live broadcast from home. 

The celebration has also been toned down to a smaller scale instead of the usual one. So what can we expect from this year’s NDP? Firstly, every household will be entitled to one funpack! Inside the funpack, there are stuff like face mask, Singapore flag and many more! This year’s NDP will be held at the parade @ Padang. What’s different in our Singapore National Day Parade this year is that not only does everyone has to maintain safe-distancing, there are also some changes to the event. For example, there’ll be a show held @ The Star Theatre broadcast on the television and internet. (For the full list, click here

Previously, be it rain or shine, the NDP still carries on as usual. This year is the first year that Singaporeans are celebrating National Day at home! How exciting is that? Are you looking forward to it as well?

你知道吗?今年的国庆庆典有分为两个部分。有早场和晚场!这真是太令人期待了!你们是否已经做好准备,积极地迎接今年的庆祝活动了呢?

Do you know that this year’s NDP is also split into two shows? They are categorized into the Morning and Evening sessions!

祝大家有个美好的国庆日,也愿2019冠状病毒可以快点离去!
