National Stadium (Sg VS N.Korea friendly match)
Anything, like, going for a soccer match when you don’t watch soccer at all. And not surprisingly, we spent half the time (literally) walking about, roving from seats to seats, snapping away, oblivious of what was happening down at the field. But Singapore won the friendly match eventually, with a score of 2-1 (their opponents being the North Koreans). Of course, with only 1/30th of the stadium filled with people and a slow and friendly game on going, the atmosphere & excitement was only a minuscule of what a 60,000 crowd could do. But I was just happy enough to wander about that night, occasionally observing the event from where I was.
All in all, I love the texture of the place, remembered the sports meets, ndps and what nots, even the groups of aunties (or uncles) who will walk around selling their fried popiahs or samosas during the various events.
It is afterall these personal memories that have imbued the stadium as a landscape of significance.
Also, thanks Zihao and Ros, for your company that night!
is still mourning over her lost photos of that night! 😐
