This year’s National Day Parade (NDP) in Singapore will be a very different one without a physical mass parade in one central location like the floating platform at Marina Bay. Instead, the focus would be to enable everyone to celebrate in the comfort of their own home or at various satellite locations in the heartlands, around the theme Together, A Stronger Singapore.

The parade segments will be moved to the heartland and streamed live over TV as well as Internet platforms. For the first time, traditional elements like the state flag fly-past, F-15SG fighter jet aerial display, the Red Lions free-fall jump, and mobile column will take place in different locations around the island. These displays will also pay special tribute to front-line workers against Covid-19.

What better way to celebrate then, than to #supportlocal with a homegrown party organiser like PartyDiva.Co for a specially curated SG55 party experience featuring a slew of interesting F&B options on their e-commerce platform.

We really loved the Nasi Lemak “Cake”! Not only was it very beautiful to look at, it was also truly delicious! We were worried about the taste at first because pretty things usually do not taste that good, but surprise – it delights on all fronts:
