This is my 5th time attending Shine Youth Festival event. This year theme is slightly different from the previous 2 years and that is “Fire up your passion“. So what is your passion? My passion is contribute to the society. I did donate my blood to save a few lives. I helped out as a volunteer for some events too.
Even Jayesslee, Mr Chan Chun Sing and a number of people have pledged as well.
Pledging can be quite simple. Go to http://shine.startnow.sg to submit your pledge!
Besides pledging, there were quite a lot of interesting activities at Ngee Ann Civic Plaza on 30 June as well. Such as Cosmo Youth Parade (4th year) whereby people wear costumes & parade from Ngee Ann Civic plaza to 313 Somerset and back again at Ngee Ann Civic Plaza.
Some in animal costumes…
Even spiderman’s here. Have you watch the amazing spiderman?
Death note as well…
Some of them do not wear costumes, however, they are helpers to hold the dragons for the cosmo parade.
There’s even dragon made up of cans…
And the longest dragon amongst all the dragon – the blue dragon
The dragon with the red scales was the longest amongst all. About 300metres long.
