I'm proud to be borne here.
Proud to benefit from the miracle work of an amazing man and his team.
Proud to be free to excel myself without fearing walking in the streets pass midnight 'cos I'm female.
Proud of the red passport that make foreigners do a double take + say, "You come from an amazing country."
But all these can become a past.
My wish for my homeland is to make policies that are unpopular yet visionary for the benefit of most. I say most 'cos I know good policies cannot cover everyone despite how fair + square it'd like to be.
Yes, leave me out if it needs to. A country's benefit is for the big picture and for the most to survive, if I happen to be part of those that fall thru the hole of the net, I'm ok.
One don't need to prove their love for their country in a war, there're many ways to work for it.
Happy birthday, Singapore. Don't get worse in my lifetime, 'cos I lived in the most glorious days of your founder's hands.
