So shoot me, but I completely forgot about National Day until a student reminded me yesterday.
Me: How was your weekend? Student: On Saturday I saw the fireworks display in Atsugi. You know fireworks? Me: We have fireworks in Singapore, but only once a year. Student: Only once a year? (In Japan, they have hanabi display multiple times in various parts of Tokyo to celebrate summer) Me: Yes, on National Day. Student: When is National Day? Me: It's on the 9th of August. Student: EH?!?! (look at calender on table) Me: Wait... what's today's date? Student: Today is the 8th! Me: Oh my, I completely forgot!
In honour of my country's birthday, and to commemorate the re-opening of my blog to public readers, here's a collage of photos from P's trip and my last days in Singapore.
