The girls had a fabulous time! Here they are checking out the action from our hotel room window at the Ritz with their godsister.
For those of you thinking of booking a room for the forthcoming NDPs - Ritz offers the best view as it is directly opposite the floating platform. Marina Mandarin is good too.. although the rooms are at an angle to the stage. Pan Pacific is largely blocked.
While the parade segment itself couldn't hold their attention for long, they were awed by the aerial display which seemed to be coming right at us and of course the fireworks. This year's seemed a trite less spectacular when compared with the previous year though... bad times, NDP budget had been cut - i guess :P
