Isang Bangkang Malaya
, or IBM, in its 8th year, commemorates the Philippine’s declaration of independence through the sport that Filipino Dragons (Singapore) does best — dragon boating.
This one-day event is a commixture activity of fun and competitive races that aims to uphold and impart if not to invigorate the rich Filipino culture of camaraderie, kinship and solidarity amongst Filipino communities thriving in Singapore all coming from different walks of life.
IBM also aspires to make an individual’s exposure to dragon boating a positive and rewarding experience. The historical significance and uniqueness of dragon boating offers an opportunity to bring a wide group of people with various interests together to participate in a shared activity such as this.
Lastly, we gather! We race! We celebrate!
