Why must collect NDP funpacks? I discarded the bags every time I got one. Only the SG50 tote bags were useful for grocery shopping and library raids, but those too had worn out and been discarded.

The things inside are useless to non-spectators. The coupons are unattractive to me. The bag this year isn't what I'd envisaged. Thought it'd be a Victorian satchel of sorts, with a pair of Raffles binoculars and Farquhar compass. Nothing so bicentennial at all.

Probably just for the fun of it since it’s a fun pack! Before we get it, we want it, after that, chey.... less than 10% useful

More fun if the Bicentennial committee had included a Wolseley pith helmet and a foldable UV-protection Victorian parasol. They're not creative at all. lol.

But the modern canvas haversack is good for holding tuition files. And the bamboo straws are handy for KFC visits.

I think I’m like so desperate to get tickets every year, yet dunno anyone with the relevant links to secure tickets...
Go ballot? Or join as an NDP volunteer, but parents might be over the hill to be NDP motivators. Can try NDP mentors. haha
