9th August 2020
Singapore National Day is celebrated every year on August 9, in commemoration of Singapore’s independence from Malaysia in 1965.
Initially, we had planned to invite a limited number of our community members (to abide by restrictions at the time) to a traditional Singaporean lunch. However, as restrictions tightened in Melbourne, we decided to move this event online to zoom.
Despite the challenges, we had a wonderful group of people who came together to bond over music, food and nostalgia for our far-away homes.
Thank you to the wonderful community members Michelle, Sue-Ann and Jenny Chua for making this afternoon a success.
