Even though we’re living in Singapore, we were able to have a little Independence day celebration! Last week we became members of the American Association of Singapore. We joined this organization for networking opportunities and to meet fellow Americans. Little did we know when we joined that we would have our first outing with the organization. They held a 4th of July celebration this past Saturday evening. We took the MRT(train, more to come on this in the coming weeks!) to the Singapore American School where a big fair/bazaar was set up in the athletic fields. They had food tents, fair games for kids, and bounce houses set up for kids, and a large stage with bands playing music. Everyone was decked out in red, white and blue!
We grabbed ourselves some burgers, had a margarita and found a spot to relax and listen to the music. The organization put on a fireworks display which was really nice. Overall, the evening made us feel like we were in the States, not half way across the world. It felt just like we were at home with everyone “oohing” and “ahhing”
P.S. Please forgive the poor photo quality, we think our camera chargers got packed in our sea shipment that won’t be here until the end of July. We’re having to use our old iphone cameras(ie. the original iphone and an iphone 3, gasp!)
