despite being an australian its hard to celebrate when you get drunk yobbos and yahoos ranting "go back to where you come from!" or "f*ck off! we're full!".nutnut wrote:
This will be the same reason the immigrants in Australia don't embrace the local customs too I guess?
As an immigrant to Singapore and having made it my home (for now) then I feel compelled to adopt some of their customs, celebrating the nations independence and what brought it to be what it is today is an important part of it in my honest opinion.
Do what you like yourself, as I am sure you will!
to me national days dont have any meaning, other than a day for me to sleep in and enjoy with some close friends.
oh, and as per standard australian traditions, if a holiday falls on a weekday, go to the doctor, get a MC and have an extended holiday.
