You either love it or hate it. National Day Parade (NDP) theme songs often draw strong reactions – and robust debate in some cases.

Here’s a look back at NDP songs through the years.


The catchy song was performed by Taufik Batisah, winner of the first season of Singapore Idol, and actress Rui En.

SINGAPORE – Two popular Asian actresses made their highly anticipated television drama comebacks recently, but their fates could not be more different.

In Singapore, Rui En can be seen in Channel 8 fantasy comedy Hello From The Other Side, her first TV appearance in over 11/2 years since the drama Have A Little Faith (2017).

While Chia will likely secure an acting nomination at the next Golden Bell Awards for her powerful comeback performance, Rui En’s show will probably be forgotten altogether.

The Singaporean actress is not the one to blame here – she had simply chosen the wrong script to stage a comeback.

To Rui En’s favour, she is charming in the role. This is one of her rare comedic parts and she is a natural. It is just too bad that the rest of the show cannot quite keep up with her.

The fake Singapore on local TV

This chronic problem has become more glaring this year. Owing to linguistic restrictions, many Channel 8 dramas take place in an HDB theme park that has been scrubbed of Singlish, incorrect Mandarin and Chinese dialects.

And although the dialect drama Eat Already? 2 has been held up as an exception to the rule, it actually makes as little sense as the Land Of Proper Mandarin. The Singapore it depicts – a country where white-collar parents speak Hokkien, not English, to their only child and young strangers burst into Cantonese, as if the Speak Mandarin Campaign was never imposed on their generation – is just as implausible as the Singapore where no one speaks Singlish.

More than two decades after it was launched, and just months after it comprehensively revamped its website, news and lifestyle aggregator AsiaOne is expected to shut down as early as next month.

AsiaOne is the primary content aggregator for SPH’s publications, featuring stories from the likes of The Straits Times and The New Paper, while also syndicating content from SPH magazines, such as Her World.

The news comes on the back of Wednesday’s announcement that SPH will be cutting 230 jobs by the end of the year, as part of a previously announced 10 per cent reduction in its work force.
