RBKD: 瑞恩通过《信约：我们的家园》中的 “杨美雪” 体验新加坡建国时代的种种变迁。被问她最喜爱的新加坡事物时，瑞恩毫不犹豫地说出美食，尤其是海南鸡饭，有空她也会去小贩中心排队尝美食。
至于哪一年的国庆庆典印象最深刻，瑞恩指出是她和Taufik Batisah演唱国庆主题曲 “Reach Out For The Skies” 的那年（2005年）。当时全场爆满的国人情绪激昂，但碍于必须表现专业，瑞恩再激动也不能哭出来。她认为陈洁仪的《家》最具代表性，一听到马上联想到国庆日、国庆庆典。
The Journey: Our Homeland is now airing, Mon-Fri, 9pm on Channel 8.

Count on Singaporeans to scorn NDP songs. SundayLife! finds out why they draw strong reactions.

Home voted the most popular NDP song
Home has struck a chord with Singaporeans, going by a recent online poll where Straits Times readers were asked to pick their favourite National Day Parade (NDP) song.
The poll ran online from Tuesday and ended on Friday. Voters were allowed to choose only one out of 18 songs.
These include 1980s favourites such as Stand Up for Singapore and We are Singaporea. Reach Out For The Skies (2005), performed by Singapore Idol Taufik Batisah and singer-actress Rui En and composed and written by Elaine Chan and Selena Tan, the duo behind this year’s theme song, came in second with 223 votes, or 10 per cent of the total votes.

SINGING the National Day Parade theme song has become an honour local singers covet.
But the star element was introduced only in 1998, when Kit Chan became the first local singer to sing Dick Lee’s heartwarming tune, Home.
But nothing approaches the glory of performing in front of a 60,000-strong crowd celebrating the nation’s birthday.
Here’s a look at who has done the honours:
1998: Home by Kit Chan.
1999: Together by Evelyn Tan & Dreamz FM. The music video was shot by famed Hong Kong director Tsui Hark who captured our multi-racial harmony.
2000: Shine On Me by Jai (English version) and Mavis Hee (Mandarin).
2001: Where I Belong, composed and performed by Tanya Chua.
2002: We Will Get There by Stefanie Sun.
2003: One United People by Stefanie.
2004: Home by JJ Lin and Kit.
2005: Reach Out For The Skies by Taufik Batisah & Rui En.
2006: My Island Home by Kaira Gong.
