Singapore turned 54 in style, with a colourful birthday bash at the Padang attended by 27,000 people, including Brunei's Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, Indonesian President Joko Widodo and Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.

The National Day parade which comes amid Singapore's year-long bicentennial commemorations, was a nod to old and new, featuring a massive glittering lion prop and the return of the popular mobile column segment after four years.
