The weather forecast says its going to be a mostly cloudy day, with temperatures at about 25 degrees Celsius this evening. In other words, perfect conditions for an outdoor countdown with the Singapore Democrats at Hong Lim Park this evening.
This evening’s program looks like this (subject to change depending on conditions):
6:00 pm Dinner (hotdogs & chips)
7:30 pm Reflections ’08/Expectations ’09 (songs and speeches)

9:30 pm Tribute to JBJ (songs and speeches)

We’ve got a great line-up of songs and short speeches, including poetry reading, for everyone. Adding to the list of speakers are Mr Kenneth Jeyaretnam, the elder son of the late J B Jeyaretnam, who will help us pay a proud tribute to his dad. National Solidarity Party president Mr Sebastian Teo will also speak in remembrance of JBJ.
