As my home is in HouGang, in every general election will be allocated to different constituency(most of the time for my home address), this 2015 GE my home belongs to Ang Mo Kia GRC – Sengkang West SMC, I didn’t catch up the voting, but the good thing is the Guest-Of-Honour is PM Lee for this time Citizenship Ceremony, so I had the chance to receive the Citizenship Certificate from PM Lee and took photo with him afterwards.
The ceremony took place at Teck Ghee Community Club, I was arriving a little bit late and the there was security control because PM Lee will be coming later, received one kit at the reception which contains some small gifts similar like SG50 bag, around 20 rounds table with 10 chairs at each table, one new citizen can bring one guest to witness the ceremony, they will be seated at the back of the hall, as the event is solemn, the dress code should be smart casual, men to wear a tie, the procedure was quite compact and concise. There were 200 new citizens today, most of them are from Malaysia, others are from China, India, etc. After the video show of “My Home” and “One People, One nation, One Singapore”, PM Lee gave a short speech, he welcome the new citizen and talked about the core value of Singapore and integration of new citizens, then PM Lee presented the Citizenship Certificate for each of the 200 new citizen one by one, after that it was the recitation of National Pledge and Singing of the National Anthem, at the end was the lunch reception.
Now I got my pink IC finally.
Received the Citizenship Certificate from PM Lee.
