SingPost issued on August 8, 2011 a beautiful set of 4 stamps and a miniature sheet to celebrate Singapore's National Day. This year's topic was Areas of Historic Significance in Singapore. Besides, a postcard showing a wonderful night view of the Marina Bay where the National Day Parade (NDP) takes place was also released. I received this card a few months ago from Terence. Thank you! :-)
The 50c stamp illustrates Taman Jurong, one of the oldest inhabited areas of Singapore, as it is nowadays, i.e. a business and leisure destination in western Singapore. The term 'Majulah!', inscribed in the first day cachet, is a famous one in Singapore which refers to the dynamism of the country and to its national anthem.
