瑞恩 不熟


Chinese compere and host Desmond Koh has nothing but praise for actress Fiona Xie.

Besides revealing about Fiona, Desmond also recently spilled the beans about six other local actresses in a Lianhe Wanbao report last week – namely, Jeannette Aw, Felicia Chin, Joanne Peh, Jesseca Liu, Rui En and Dawn Yeoh.

On Rui En:
Desmond sad: “Although we have worked together before, I don’t know her very well.”

National Day is here! And other than looking forward to an extended weekend, we teens can also expect to hear this year’s National Day theme song played again and again over the airwaves.

There is just one problem – the song itself.

So what exactly does an NDP song need in order to score with us youth?

Three things: Fast-paced, catchy music, meaningful lyrics, and how much it touches our hearts.

A good example of such a song is Reach Out For The Skies, the 2005 theme song sung by Taufik Batisah and Rui En, the year I watched the NDP Preview live.

As the song was performed, the sea of students and other spectators was swaying so enthusiastically, I thought they were ready to jump out of their seats and do a song and dance number themselves.

The words to the song were simple, yet conveyed a strong message to Singaporeans to do the best they can and make their nation proud.

National Day songs were first created to help evoke a sense of national identity.



National Day theme songs were first introduced in the 1980s. Many are sung every year during the grand finale of the parade, in what has come to be known as the Sing Singapore Medley.

Stand Up For Singapore was first sung in 1984. With its catchy rhythm and positive lyrics, it spread the message for Singaporeans to be “prepared to give a little more”.

In the 1986 parade, Count on Me Singapore, sung by Clement Chow, reminded Singaporeans that they must, and can, achieve excellence.

In 1990, the song titled One People, One Nation, One Singapore, penned by Jim Aitchison with music by Jeremy Monteiro, was sung by people at the Swing Singapore Party 1990 held in Orchard Road as confetti rained down on them. It was also sung in the 1990 parade, commemorating Singapore’s 25 years of independence.


Over the past few years, National Day theme songs have become more modern, incorporating pop elements. They have also been performed by popular home-grown talent.

Some favourites include Home, sung by Kit Chan from 1998; Where I Belong by Tanya Chua (left) from 2001; and Reach Out For The Skies performed by Taufik Batisah and Rui En from 2005.

This year’s National Day theme song is entitled What Do You See. Performed by local rock band Electrico, the song aims to foster community spirit and pride in Singaporeans. The Mandarin version will be sung by Chen Wei Lian.
