St Patrick’s Day Parade 2010

Today March 17 is St Patrick’s Day, an Irish festival. Although not celebrated nor is it a holiday here in Singapore, the Irish community here do get together on a Sunday before the actual day for a street parade with participants from school bands, uniform groups and of course Stormtroopers.


2. The famous Sir Stamford Raffles statue. He’s the founder of modern Singapore for the uninitiated.


3. Shhh… the baby sleeping.
