Preschool Patriot

Last week, amid the usual din of the Pilgrim household, we began to hear a new sound. It took us a few days to figure out that Porthos was singing the Singapore national anthem, which they had started introducing at his kindergarten.

Now, patriotic lyrics would be challenging enough for any kid of four-and-a-half. But what if the lyrics were in Malay to boot? Here is Porthos’ rendition of Majulah Singapura. (The file is audio only, and the background is quiet only because I worked very, very hard to stifle my laughter.)

Still, you gotta love that confidence. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Bravo! That’s pretty awesome. I still remember primary 5 music class – we were FINALLY given printed words to Majulah and spent weeks learning how to sing it properly. I guess the teachers were tired of us masscring the anthem.

  2. whoo hoo!!! that was priceless! how thoroughly entertaining, I wonder what it all means if we had to translate his “Malay” into English!
