"On this occasion of the 45th anniversary of our nation's Air Force, we renew our pledge to defend our nation's skies and to keep our Air Force, in the years to come, above all."

NEARLY 50 residents from the Kebun Baru area came together in the morning for the first time to help restore grass patches in Lower Pierce Park damaged by wild boars.
Using shovels provided by NParks, they worked together in an area about half the size of a football field for about two hours yesterday to help make the damaged patches as even as possible.
The initiative was organised by the Kebun Baru Vista Neighbourhood Committee (NC), which looks into the welfare of residents in private estates and condominiums in the area.
"We are passionate and we have a desire to do our part to improve the park's environment because many of us come here regularly for exercise and recreation," said Chang Nam Yuen, the chairman of the Kebun Baru Vista NC. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
