Decade Jubilee.

The dragon flag was hoisted on the top of the mast and it is fluttering in the cold morning breeze. A huge throng had gathered in the courtyard wearing colorful and beautiful attires. On either sides of the courtyard there are stalls piled with toy cars, edible fast foods, office stationeries and other grocery items. And the nature is kind enough to bless the event with cloudless sky.
