  1. This year’s National Day Parade (NDP), themed “Our Singapore”, calls on Singaporeans to come together and be pioneers of our future. In line with the forward-looking theme, the NDP 2019 Funpack will include practical and reusable items to encourage more sustainable practices, as well as feature a versatile design that allows for dual use.

  2. Each Funpack will include a 750ml sports water bottle designed with a hands-free spout, and reusable bamboo drinking straws that can be used as clappers during the NDP. The inclusion of these reusable items is in support of the local campaigns “Say YES to Waste Less” and “Year Towards Zero Waste”1.

The Funpack will also come with a reflective strip for enhanced night visibility, two internal pockets, and a water-resistant inner lining, so that the Funpack can be used for a wide range of activities.

  4. Chairman of the NDP 2019 Logistics and Finance Committee ME6 Ignatius Tham said, “Every year, the Funpacks are a highlight for NDP attendees. Since 1991, there have been many interesting and memorable Funpack designs. This year, we are glad to be able to deliver to the public a versatile design that can fulfil a multitude of uses. We hope that NDP attendees will continue to reuse them for day-to-day activities, even after the NDP.”

  5. The Funpack, designed in partnership with the Temasek Foundation, can also be used as a “Stay Prepared” Emergency Ready Bag2.



1 These campaigns are led by the National Environment Agency (NEA) and the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR) respectively, sharing a focus on reducing consumption of disposables.
2 The Ready Bag aims to raise awareness among Singaporeans about the importance of having a ready bag of essential items that can be brought along in the event of an emergency home evacuation.
Background

The National Day Parade (NDP) first featured the Funpack in 1991, and it has been a highlight at every NDP since then. The Funpack comprises interactive items to evoke a celebratory mood among the spectators, and in recent years, also serve to support the special effects during the NDP show. In addition, the Funpack also contains basic sustenance and welfare items to energise spectators throughout the NDP.

Design

The NDP 2019 Funpack will be available in red or white, and feature adjustable straps, allowing it to be carried as a backpack or sling bag.

Reusability

To encourage more sustainable practices, the Funpack will include practical and reusable items. Each Funpack will include a 750ml sports water bottle designed with a hands-free spout, and reusable bamboo drinking straws that can be used as clappers during the NDP. Unused ponchos will also be collected after each NDP rehearsal and Preview, to be given out at the next rehearsal/Preview. The Funpack also has a versatile design to encourage everyday use after the NDP.

Emergency Ready Bag

One of the possible ways to reuse the Funpack is as a “Stay Prepared” Emergency Ready Bag. The Emergency Ready Bag, designed in partnership with Temasek Foundation, aims to raise awareness among Singaporeans about the importance of having a ready bag of essential items that can be brought along in the event of an emergency home evacuation. Each Funpack contains a label on the recommended essential items to pack for such an Emergency Ready Bag as well as two QR codes that will launch the websites of the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) for more information on preparing a Ready Bag, and the Singapore Red Cross Society for details about a free CPR and AED course.

    Lyrics to Our Singapore (2019)

    Verse 1 – Sung by Veterans

    Remember the days, we set out together with faith?
    Remember the times, so fine, when we thought that
    Nothing could stand in our way?
    Then things weren't the same, the life that we knew had to change
    We've struggled through, the darkest storms
    We thought we couldn't tame

    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

    Verse 2 – Sung by Contemporaries

    Through many years gone by, we've moved ahead together
    We've built a brave new world where we could shine and grow
    And now we only have to look towards tomorrow
    To carry on the dream as far as it will go

    So now we look around us and we see
    A nation built with love by you and me
    A land to treasure right down to the core
    Our home, our heart, our Singapore

    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Our home, our heart, our Singapore

    Verse 3 – Performed by Rappers

    To my people of the future
    We built it for the ones that dream
    Hand in hand we make our land
    Our home, the place to be
    From young to Gold, our stories unfold,
    Moments like these will speak
    Words that last forever, worlds that come together
    To show that we're all the same
    We'll break the chains, to make a change
    Burn bright, our lion city flame

    Verse 4 – Sung by Homegrown Icons

    And amazing as it seems
    It all started with a dream
    But the dreaming isn't done
    Because the best is yet to come

    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Our home, our heart, our Singapore

    Verse 5 – Sung by Children

    Deep in my heart I just know
    Right from the start, we will grow
    Look where we are, we've come so far
    And there's still a long, long way to go
    With all of my heart, I will care
    I'll play my part, I will share
    With family and friends, together we'll stand
    And in the end, hand in hand
    We will get there

    Outro

    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Our home, our heart, our dream.
