It was a warm humid evening. As I was dozing off on the sofa, there were knockings at the door. A sweet voice came through, “Hello! Hello! Anyone in? Hello!”
I sprang up and went to open the door. A lady stood outside. She had a cheerful disposition.
“Miss, can I help you?”
“Sorry to disturb you; it is like this.…We have put up the national flags at your block. Please do not put up your own flag.”
“Can I put up an extra one?”
“No, we put the flags in a way to form a certain shape. If you put extra one it will be out of place, not nice you see.”
“I see. Thank you for taking the trouble to inform us and putting up the flags, very thoughtful of you all.”
“Thank you, bye.”
She did not introduce herself but I think she is a member of one of the residents’ committees. Since last year the RC has put up flags at our block. Before that I used to put up my own. Then only about one-third of flats in my block did that.
That was yesterday. This afternoon I went to the top level of the opposite block to see what shape it is.
