Singapore

Singapore's party

We may have some serious hardware on display in the mobile column, but we know how to have fun too​. Last night's National Day Parade was packed with spectacular moments to swell the feeling of national pride.

It's really special to be here, to see the whole nation come together, it feels like we're one big family. - Mr Sha Nawaz Khan, 35, Information Technology manager in the banking sector

I'm so proud of Singapore and how much it has progressed in 50 years. I was formerly in the air force and now I'm retired. But I would happily fight for Singapore again. I would die for my country.

- Mr S. Balakrishnan, 65, retiree
