This year is a little special

Updated: Apr 28

Anzac Day parade is held annually on 25 April. This year, even though it is a public holiday, I got out of my warm bed in the freezing morning and hurried to the parade.

今年的澳新軍團日,雖是公眾假期,但我也在這冰冷的早晨裡,從溫暖的被窩裡爬了出來,趕著去看這場一年一度的遊行。


This year’s parade is a little different than the previous years. Not because I am playing in it, but my students are!

這年的遊行有點不一樣,不是因為我有份,而是我的學生有份參與!


The parade commences at 9:00am. We were waiting on the street from 9:15am (dragged bf to accompany me).

Until around 10:30am, we see the band of my students finally!


My students were marching for Melbourne Youth Orchestra. Albert was playing the cymbals, and Harry was playing the snare drum.


Their band marched quite quickly. I was half running trying to catch up their march.

Then I saw someone running even faster than me and ahead of me. She was also holding a phone to take photos while running, like me.

Oh, it is Albert’s mum!

他們的隊伍走得很快。我們要小步跑地跟隨。身為忠實粉絲的我當然拍了不少照片和影片。

然後我瞧到有人比我跑得更快,甚至箭步衝過我的身邊。咦,她也和我一樣捧著手機邊跑邊拍照。

仔細一看,是Albert媽媽 :P


Watching the march of other different bands was also fun. I was proud and happy to see that Albert and Harry marched in this year’s Anzac parade, and that they have enjoyed playing in the MYO.
