An audience member stood up to sing along to Kit Chan’s Home at the National Day Rally 2015.

She was later identified as Wu Jiezhen, 26, executive director of The Hidden Good, a social startup that aims to uncover and celebrate the good in Singapore and the community by hosting flashmobs and posting videos of volunteers and Singaporeans engaging in acts of kindness.

Wu said it is okay to be unapologetically enthusiastic about standing up for Singapore, which was the reason why she stood up to sing.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “No wonder Singapore’s GDP is stagnating at 2 percent per year because doing good was never a business.”
Zuo Shan Shi, 44-year-old charity worker

 

sian-half-uncle “People like her really make a mess out of the bell curve.”
Pu Tong Ren, 66-year-old average returns investor

 

happy-bird-girl “I wouldn’t mind standing up to sing but as long as it doesn’t scream wayang.”
Chang Guo Ge, 18-year-old KTV songstress

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong used the National Day Rally 2015 on Sunday, Aug. 23, 2015, to harp on the results his team has delivered for Singaporeans the last 10 years.

These results include making healthcare less expensive, strengthening social safety nets and having more education opportunities.

The rally also featured a performance by Kit Chan, who sang Home.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “This might as well have been National Lee Kuan Yew Rally given the number of times he got mentioned.”
Li Zhong Li, 46-year-old kueh maker

 

sian-half-uncle “I was actually looking forward to the section where PM Lee explains the things PAP did not achieve for Singaporeans.”
Mei Chen Jiu, 66-year-old ex-businessman

 

happy-bird-girl “It’s always funny to watch PAP get 60 percent of votes despite having such a big platform to canvass for support.”
Qu Tou Piao, 17-year-old charity worker
