Fifty years, and fifty more

I am very pleased to wish Singapore a happy birthday from myself and behalf of Be An Idea. Over 9 years ago, I came to the shores of this island nation with a hope to build a life, and it has been amazing to see how the country has developed in a short decade, let alone the last 50 years. While other countries are locked into a direction by the weight of history and their culture, as a young nation, Singapore has an emerging discourse on its direction and values that is both vibrant. It feels like a work in progress, but one that its people, residents and foreigners can still greatly influence in the choices that we make.
