Unlike the UK where patriotism is almost un-PC, EVERYONE loves National Day. We're having a 3 day weekend to enjoy the celebrations. There are ceremonies all over town, parades, fireworks - so much to choose from that my mind is boggling! There's also the huge array of National Day themed merchandise - my office is looking particularly resplendent right now. It's hard not to get excited about it all, especially when I love my adopted home so much.
Although I don't know what I'm doing, I do have the outfit sorted: themed dress, hat, two scarves, BOOM! Full updates and photos to follow. If I don't make the front page of Gulf News it will be a travesty.
