The Belgians (I am from Belgium) and the Irish have two things in common: they like their beers, and when, inadvertently of course, this ends in being drunk they are not usually not making too much of a fuzz and just enjoy a good time together. My friends in Public House, Singapore”) might disagree however with that last statement.
The Irish in Singapore are extremely clever: they hold a Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, but not on Saint Patrick’s Day (which is on March 17th). Usually the parade in Singapore is a few days earlier or later, on a week-end.
People from beer drinking countries immediately see the advantage in this: you now have a good excuse to party on two days instead of just one. That is, if you can take a break from searching for a pot-of-gold at the end of a rainbow which would give you even more opportunities to enjoy a good beer and whisky.
I was pleasantly surprised that people of all nationalities joined in the festivities and had great fun with the pipers, marches and singing and dancing performances.
Anyway, I let the pictures speak for themselves. See you there next year, for another great and green day!
