Your excitement and thrill in the Ekka Festival
The picture posted last night brought so many fond memories Ali Farzan of the Ekka festival. We were lucky to attend this largest annual festival of Queensland in 2007. Do you remember going to the festival. No you didn’t remember many details but I do. You, nani and me reached there through train by 10 a.m. and this picture was taken at about 10 p.m. Just see, your face shows no fatigue of spending twelve hours in a fair. You were lucky that for half of the day me and ammi did not realize how big the fair was and we three remained in the area with swings and rides for five hours. You enjoyed each one. I remember there was a ride in shape of helicopter with just one seat. You agreed to sit alone. You were only three and a half years old. You were in the habit of making decisions for yourself.
You were excited about everything. The cattle and dog parades were so boring for me and naani but made you happy. We saw a taekwondo show. We ate the sandwiches and took coke. Saw arabic dance. You wanted to buy a showbag but we refused. Nani was tired around 5 but I wanted to see the firework. The picture shared in last night’s post was taken in the stadium where we watched the firework. The blasts in the air, the lights in the sky, green, blue and red colours-all were new for you. Your face reflects your excitement. Naani took our picture in which you look so happy and thrilled. Remain as happy in Heaven my love and explore exciting things. Bye.
