Before they started their song proper, they thought that it would be entertaining to dedicate a song in Malay for the non-Chinese audience who were attending this event.
What surprised me was the choice of the introductory song. The trio decided that they should belt out a distorted rendition of the Singapore national anthem.
I am a firm believer that we should treat our national anthem seriously. As citizens, we should learn to respect and honour it. Singing the national anthem is a solemn affair and it should not be approached in such a frivolous manner.
