NDP 2014: Stand-out people

AsiaOne.com – 10 August 2014

SINGAPORE – It was a parade that celebrated Singapore’s everyday characters and their resilience.

And there were highlights aplenty throughout the 21/2-hour event, from precision drills to new military and Home Team vehicles on display…


The parade’s five hosts – actress Siti Khalijah, actor Ebi Shankara, entertainer Hossan Leong and radio DJs Jean Danker and Joakim Gomez – stole the limelight this year with their dazzling array of outfits and costume changes.

At the start of the show, they emerged on stage in bold and bright colour-blocked outfits, in line with this year’s pop art colour theme. In the fourth and final act, they came on in their red-and-white best as the show came to a climax.

Standing out from his co-hosts, Leong was dressed to impress. Looking smart, he sported a sequinned red blazer and polka dot trousers. The loud outfit certainly matched his livewire personality
