It’s National Day. I remembered watching the National Day celebrations on TV when I was a kid. My whole family would sit in front of the TV and watched until the celebrations ended. The English commentary would be on one channel and the Mandarin commentary on another channel. Sometimes we would switch the channels just to hear what the other commentators were saying. When the celebrations were still held at the National Stadium, we could hear the fighter planes as they flew over our area and see the fireworks from our window.
