Have you seen the signs for "Singapore Day"? I was all excited to attend--except apparently it's ONLY for Singaporeans! It's a cultural festival only for people of it's culture! NO SHARING ALLOWED!It's a juicy story and I'm sure other actual "news" outlets will get the full story. I'm just passin' it on...sounds like a massive misunderstanding, OR someone tried to pull the wool over the Alliance's eyes. Here's their response as of a few moments ago, though the point is moot, cause the event's gonna sell-out the Nethermeade no problem:
It was presented to Prospect Park as a day open for everyone...you just need to register. But when you register, if you AREN'T from Singapore...you get rejected! Prospect Park just realized this today, when it reminded everyone to "register" on FB, and people replied that they tried and got rejected.
We are sorry for the confusion. The information we posted about registering online is incorrect. The event is open to the public when you register for the event at the event.
We are double checking the procedure for the day of the event and will let you know.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Personally I find the "closed" registration incredibly obnoxious, but hey, Singapore's a police state. I wonder if there will be a public flogging display? And don't DARE litter!
It's quite likely the event will reach capacity before you get in. If you're non-Singaporean and happen to swing by and try to attend, shoot me a note and let me know if you get in!
