2011 JUNE NDP Second Combined Rehearsal CR2, Singapore


This is the second combined rehearsal for the NDP 2011.

The first rehearsal started at around 1300 hours in the hot blazing and high humidity Singapore weather. The marching contingents were mostly dressed in their half uniform.

The second rehearsal started at around 1800 hours in cooler temperature.

The hosts for this year NDP 2011 are Gurmit Singh, Suhaimi and former MTV VJ Denise Keller and  Belinda Lee. The hosts were hoisted up by a cherry picker to greet the crowds at the Marina Bay platform.

It was great to see the Red Lions parachute team up close and personal.

On the small road at the Marina Bay platform area, most of the SAF newest acquisition are showcased for the spectators from the Leopard L2SG, Terrex ICV and the HIMARS.

Behind the scene, I was able to capture and see the frantic preparation for the performances.
