This year I will be missing your birthday celebration. I will not be at the moment with fellow citizens while they are singing national anthem out loud when our flag fly pass.
This is because I am on my national service duty to protect the sky of our homeland. Rest assured Singapore, you are well protected by us. Go ahead and celebrate your hearts out, to sing and dance on our behalf.
This year is a special year which I am missing your celebration for a good cause. I hope you can feel our love through our actions.
Happy 49th Birthday Singapore!
You are loved by us.
