Countdown 2020 at Our Tampines Hub

When I was a child in the 1950s in Bukit Ho Swee kampong where I was born, I have not heard about the 'New Year End Countdown'.

The New Year End (NYE) countdown celebrations is very meaningful for every Singaporeans, young and old, all races, rich or poor. 

I made it a point to celebrate the NYE countdown and blog about it to share with my friends and my children.  The event is different every year and my feelings, my thoughts and experiences are never the same.  For as long as we grow in Singapore, a home with peace and harmony, political stability and the different races, different religion and culture as a community work, play and live together as Singaporeans.

Like the "windmills of my mind" of the many young children with happy faces at the OTH Countdown, I reminise the excitement and opened mouth awe-inspired expression to watch the fireworks for the first time at the Singapore waterfront in 1953 here .

Suhaimi Yusof (Fly Entertainment Artiste) and Belinda Lee (Cross Ratio Entertainment Artiste) entertain the audience throughout the evening to scream and shout, blew whistles, made happy noises which the kids like to join their parents.

Thanks to the organising committees of this special events for their splendid efforts to plan, prepare the props and interesting programmes for many months.

I have the pleasure and privilege to attend Countdown 2020 at Our Tampines Hub to have the opportunity for the first-time experience with my Tampines friends, neighbours and colleagues on 31 December, 2019.  Thanks to Mr Baey Yam Keng to arrange for an official pass to be used at the event.

In the past, I attended the year-end countdown at Marina Bay to absorb the wonderful atmosphere and join thousands of people (Singaporeans and overseas visitors and tourists) to watch the spectacular fireworks here .

For about 3 hours before the countdown at midnight, the full-house capacity audience at the Town Square were entertained by many entertaining stage performances by The Pyro Man, Tay Kewei and Alfred Sim and the Malay acapella group.
