It’s all about love this week! Love for Rui En & love for our nation!
Favourite pic this week guest stars our Prime Minister Lee with Rui En & Taufik!
It was 10 years ago when Rui En & Taufik took to the stage of NDP at symbolic Padang, performing “Reach Out For The Skies”.
10 years on, they are back on stage together, this time at Singapore’s first and only UNESCO site – Botanic Gardens!
August this year shall be remembered for SG50 and the amount of rain! Fans braved the heavy downpour just to catch Rui Ens song performance. Check it out here!
This is for you if you missed Rui En's performance yesterday! Plus, an additional interview with Rui En! <3Rui En was so worried for her fans yesterday: "I know they were caught in the rain, they were caught in the flood, and I was just so worried for them. But I am so glad that….

I was there before daybreak and an elderly came up to me after spotting me with video cameras, sharing that “this place is nicer at 9pm “.
Aunties & uncles (aka strangers) approached us to chit-chat when they learned that we were Rui En’s fans. (It was super shiok when they praised Rui En )
NParks’ staff treated us like guests & assisted us on several occasions. And they came up to me twice to express their thanks when we helped them in crowd control.
But it was the rain that made everything sweeter.
Boards before self. That’s RBKD for you.
And even when the rain was pouring, we were looking out for each other. Sheltering each other while someone puts on a poncho or when someone was hiding under jacket etc.
To the selected fans who attended the event with us today, I hope you had a teaser experience of what being a RBKD member is like.
Despite my evacuation calls, members kept coming back whenever the rain “lied” about subsiding, just because some of us were still there guarding.
When the rain washed away our bags, and when our tripod toppled, strangers picked them up on our behalf.
And I saw my members offering our extra ponchos to the crowd-goers around us, and picking up rubbish that weren’t from us. The crowd looked on. Some helped, some smiled. That was good enough.
And then there’s Rui En. She was so worried about our safety after seeing this pic I took.
Bonus video of the mini-flood:
This was her “另类对你好” to us, which I have been informed that she had specially chosen it for us for the past two events.
It would have been great if you got to sing your third song if not for the heavy downpour, but it was just as amazing that despite the distance, we still connected.
Thank you for thanking RBKD, “RBKD” just sound especially sweet when you are the one saying it.
And thanks for waving goodbye to us all the way until we were out of your sight.
Enjoy your National Day! 🇸🇬
RBKD: At the beginning of the news was the coverage on unveiling the Singapore Botanic Gardens’ UNESCO World Heritage Site plaque. In celebration of the country’s 50th year of independence, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong officially named the SG50 orchid – Papilionanthe Singapore Golden Jubilee.
There was also a series of activities lined up at the Gardens, where the first of such series of concerts is called “Aneka Ragam Ra’ayat” or The People’s Variety Show, featuring local artistes such as Rui En, Taufik Batisah and cultural dance troupes.
The Singapore Botanic Gardens celebrates Singapore’s jubilee in a three-day carnival and a range of performances from 7 to 9 August. Visitors will be treated to concerts by local artistes and groups from 7 to 9 August.
In 1959, the Singapore Botanic Gardens was chosen as a venue for then Prime Minister, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, to launch a series of cultural concerts with a multi-ethnic theme. Singapore’s first “People’s Variety Show”, or Aneka Ragam Ra’ayat, was held in the Gardens during the early years of nation building.
In continuing this tradition, the concert will feature favourite local acts in a multicultural extravaganza, hosted by Suhaimi Yusof and Vernetta Lopez. Local groups and artistes including 53A, Rui En, John Molina, Olivia Ong, Taufik Batisah, Shabir and Corrinne May will form the exciting line-up on 7 August from 4pm to 7pm.
Event: Spartan Race
Date: 1 August 2015, Saturday
