As Singapore is now taking the steps into her milestone jubilee 50th year in 2015, the theme for N.E.mation! 9 Central Idea – Because We Believe fits perfectly to celebrate Singapore’s 50th year. This special theme for N.E.mation! 9 resonates with me because I have been exploring, documenting and photographing Singapore’s Old Places, history, heritage, culture, conservation and preservation for the past few years. As Singapore approaches our 50th year, it’s an important landmark and milestone for all Singaporeans as we look forward into the future and beyond. The pioneers who built Singapore today believed in the vision to build a strong, secure and cohesive country. Today, as Singapore approaches her 50th birthday, it’s time to reflect values, principles and convictions to continue the growth for the future of Singapore, to shape Singapore into the Home that we want it to be for our future generations.

Not only are there attractive prizes to be won, the learning and journey in N.E.mation! is going to be interesting and exciting, the experiences and journey can even become priceless and invaluable lifetime experiences. Gather your classmates and school mates, time to register for N.E.mation! 9 and give it a go! Good luck to all participants at N.E.mation! 9 and I hope to see you there!
