Besides the promise of fireworks to usher in the New Year, one of the certain attractions was to be the appearance by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong himself as Guest of Honour for this event.
That would take place close to 11 pm that night.
When my Minstrels and I were entertaining on stage we had absolutely no idea whether we were captured "live'' by any media or Tv crew. It was only much later when Hoe Yeen Nie, Senior Reporter for MediaCorp News Hub, was referred to me to interview me about the Minstrels and my background...that I realised they had some filming done.
I had no prior idea when or even whether the footage will be aired. Subsequently, some of my Minstrels and friends told me that we were featured prominently in the Primetime news and on Razor TV...as shown below.
