National Day Celebration and promotions

No matter where I travel to, there is no place like home. This year, Singapore is celebrating its 53rd birthday. To be honest, from a small island without any natural resources, we transformed into one of the world’s wealthiest countries, I think we have came really fast and far. This year’s National Day happens to fall on a weekday but this does not deter anyone of us from celebrating! So here you are, a list of dining promotions that are launched to celebrate this joyous occasion.
