From now until noon on 8 August, Singaporeans can visit StarHub’s Facebook or Mr Brown’s blog to share what makes them so uniquely Singaporean, or tweet their comments with the hashtag #singaporeanness.
On the 8th, Mr Brown will compile selected comments into one unofficial National Day song. The music video will be available for viewing on StarHub’s Facebook and YouTube channels.
“There are many facets that make us Singaporean,” said Wang Li-Na, head of consumer marketing at StarHub. “Regardless of race, religion or even language in this multicultural melting pot, there are numerous unique Singaporean traits that make us one united people.” It’s timely to celebrate National Day in the form of one song that will bring out the true flavour of Singaporean-ness, she added.
In a tribute to the nation’s 48th birthday, StarHub has produced a series of birthday greetings that celebrate Singapore’s unique qualities and culture, including one official version using proper English, available on StarHub TV channels, in GV cinemas and during the National Day Parade, as well as four unofficial versions in Singlish, which can be viewed on a microsite (one is included above).
