On day 30th, month of December, year 2008, local time 11:00am, inside the Immigration and Checkpoint Authority (ICA) building I took my oath in front the Commissioner of Oath that I will abide the law and give my allegiance to this nation and defend the sovereignty of Republic of Singapore from hence forth.
Yes, I am now officially one of Singapore's SINGAPOREAN.
I am proud to be part of our present uniquely and intricately woven society in this 'growing'island. Not only we are growing as One United People, but even our own island is physically growing larger since independence through the mega engineering feat of land reclamations around the coastline.
From a slump of given up hope to survive since separation from the Malaya , our forefathers determined and persevere through much storm and drought of hardship to continue to transform this proverbial ugly duckling to be a magnificent elegant white swan floating on the lake of South East Asia.
Since my first official step on this island on April 1st 1982, I had witnessed and experienced first hand the uniquely transformation and growth in quantum terms in the people's various aspects of society life development in body, mental and spirit.
Truly a Unique Singapore Spirit and mystically blended formula for survival through crisis after crisis, but getting stronger and stronger after each one.
I am proud to be enable to contribute to her further growth in years ahead and I am humbly proud to one of her beloved sons and daughters. Now I am no longer a foreigner, but I AM SINGAPOREAN!
