National Day Celebrations
By Angeline. T (7 years old)
It is the National Day today. This year, the celebration is held at the Town Padang. My family and I join thousands of fellow Malaysians to celebrate our nation’s birthday. A large crowd of people have already gathered to watch the parade when we reach there.
I love seeing all the participants from the uniformed groups and organisations marching by in their smart uniforms. A group of uniformed men is filing past, proudly holding up flagpoles in their hands.
Up in the sky, a helicopter carrying a huge flag flies over us. A loud cheer goes up while we wave our little flags enthusiastically. Next, the jet planes zoom by in a beautiful formation. The fantastic airshow continues with parachutists in bright orange jumpsuits jumping from the planes. They land safely on the field.
I enjoy the annual National Day celebration very much and I am proud to be a Malaysian. What about you?
