Holland @ Netherlands

Mention Holland @ Netherlands and few things that would spring in my mind are :

the tulips,





windmills,




clogs





.... and Edam cheese
(and this is b'cos I used to come across questions of "d famous cheese from Holland" when I played crosswords...hehe..)







Its Netherlands vs Denmark tonite in World Cup.


"The Netherlands national football team play in a bright orange shirt. Orange is the historic national colour of the Netherlands, originating from the coat of arms of the Dutch founding father William of Orange-Nassau. The top red band of the current flag was originally orange. The current Dutch away shirt is white, with two thin lines outlining a chevron containing the colors of the Dutch flag. Occasionally, orange socks are worn instead of light blue socks"






mmmm....but of course nowdays my first thot would be on my fren who is residing there at the moment..hehe


(Ilham, her son)


and I'm sure they'd b glued in front of their TV, watching the Oranje..hehehe..


(Update at 10.15pm : Netherlands 2 - 0 Denmark)

Auntie Cheqna!! You had done your research well!! You know more than we do !!

Btw, we were not glued in front of the TV. At 1.15 pm (local & south african time), we were having grade 2 luncheon and later ice-cream party in 2JK classroom. This week is the last week before the summer holiday.. so lots of partying at the ISA.

Auntie TK, Ilham also has been pestering his father for the orange jersey, so his father said we will buy when we get to Padang Besar ha..ha..ha..
