meet up with the rest of the Singaporeans to go to the High
Commission at Khandallh,..somewheer 2km from Wellignton...

The High Commission is a realli beautiful place situated on
top of the hill. The High Commissionaer to NZ, Mr Tan, is
such a nice and friendly person..He chatted to us like an
uncle to his nieces and nephews... the interiors of the
place was realli grand...and they set up projection TV to
show the NDP live..thru the internet : P...

spread... it's realli when one's out of the country when
u'll feel a kindof passion for ur country again... i felt
quite good being in the company of fellow
singaporeans...all of us juz mingled around informally in
the house.. we sat on the carpet , ate nonya kuehs and
watched the parade at the same time...although we are
serioudly laggin in the webcast : P
