In 3 days' time, it will be Singapore's National Day. The logo is known as the "Orchidstar". As mentioned on the official website of NDP 2012, the logo is inspired by our national flower, "Vanda Miss Joaquim" orchid. The theme for National Day Parade (NDP) 2012 is “Loving Singapore, Our Home”.

Not known to many, Singapore is only 47 years old this coming Thursday. Her development and rapid growth is considered to be a miracle given her limited natural resources and small population. Against the odds, Singapore managed to emerge as an International Financial Hub as well as a leading research centre for Science and Technology.

I have been hearing sounds of explosions these few days leading up to National Day. What's happening? These sounds of explosion bring excitement to the hearts of the locals because they know fireworks are being displayed at the NDP preview which is held at the floating platform at Marina Bay. Don't worry if you missed the chance to view these fireworks. The most spectacular ones will be on display this coming Thursday. The best of all, you can find both free and paid viewing options here.

For tourists coming to Singapore during this period, you have made a great decision. So why not take up our iPad rental service, and you can get to these viewing points effortlessly, take some epic shots of fireworks and share these memorable sights with family and friends back home via social media with our unlimited 3G services, all using the new iPad we have for you.
