I went to the city to see a parade with my flat mates.
It was one of the main events to celebrate Chinese New Year's Day according to the lunar calendar.

It was less than 20 degrees Celsius at night and we were very cold
because Sydney reached 41 degrees just yesterday.
What made it worse, we were caught in a shower.
It started at 7:45 pm, but we waited for more than an hour to get a spot to watch it.

The parade was made up of many different kinds of things
such as a lot of parade floats and performers from China.
We were able to feel the different culture,
which is one of the fascinating things about living in Sydney.
Although many Asian countries use the lunar calendar, Japanese people don't.
I wonder why this is so?

After that, we moved to Darling Harbour to watch the fireworks display.
They were much smaller than those on Australia Day, but it was still good to see them.

I'm going to watch the Dragon Boat Races which will be held this weekend.

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.
1. asylum (on TV)
= shelter or protection from danger
2. furore (on TV)
= great anger or excitement shown by a number of people, usually caused by a public event
3. king hit (on TV)
