‘We Love SG” – Chingay Parade 2015

The First Formal Chingay Parade in Singapore started on 4 February 1973 where the PA (People’s Associations) teamed up with the Singapore National Pugilistic Federation for a grand show in the Year of the Ox. This act was mooted by the then-Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew who was also the chairman of the People’s Association, that Chingay, with all its noise and gaiety, would compensate for the ban on firecrackers, a customary New Year practice to drive away evil spirits. It was extremely well received that it became an annual festival and Chingay had its 40th anniversary in 2012. This year, in celebrations of SG50, Chingay will be having the biggest and grandest parade in Chingay history! Themed “We Love SG” (我们爱新加坡), the 43rd Chingay parade will be presented by 11,000 beautiful multi-cultural performers!

Have you notice the recent craze about New Balance Shoes? Honestly, my very first impression of New Balance shoes was my pair of running shoes giving to me when I got enlisted into the army and i think it wasn’t very “good-looking”. Over the years, New Balance seems to have change and i guess partially due to the kpop craze, you will noticed more people wearing New Balance shoes as the design nowadays is sooo much nicer and versatile. You can basically match it with any thing. be it casual or formal wear, shorts, berms, jeans, pants, dress for the ladies and it still looks great!
