Today is China National Day,
the memorial day for the founding of The People's Republic of China.
The people of China will travel far and wide to celebrate with family and friends.
Here are eight of my memories from our time in China.
Eight as it is the most auspicious number in Chinese culture,
the number eight, pronounced 'ba' sounds similar to the word for prosperity 'fa'.
An iconic Panda after a feed of bamboo in Chengdu.
Birds hanging in the streets of Shanghai, filling the air with their songs.
The legendary 'Avocado Lady' made many an expat feel at home.
Friendly Chinese cooks, always ready for a smile!
The beautiful Lotus bloom in Yangshou, China.
You can transport anything on the back of a bike in China.
The ever changing Shanghai Skyline.
I am sure China National Day 2015 will go out with a spectacular bang!
