I am glad that the NDP organisers and controllers allowed such light-hearted banter even on such an occasion. Past NDPs were too serious throughout. There should be a nice balance between the solemnity and the entertainment side of the items.
As we sat watching the Parade, the seconds ticked by and soon the clock struck 8.22 pm.
It was only 30 seconds. But history was being made right that moment for all who were spirited enough to be counted!
