Dragon boat races

Yuki and I woke up early to travel to the YingFeng Riverside park (迎風河濱公園) to watch the yearly dragon boat races. Dragon boat races are traditionally held as part of the annual Duanwu Festival (端午節). We went there to support her Japanese friend in the race. Her team ended up winning! She'll have to return later in the day for the finals competition. After watching a few more races, I realized they were paddling upstream. Thats gotta be difficult on the arms! Alas, the day was swelteringly hot and humid, so Yuki and I opted to headed over to the Miramar mall for lunch and air conditioning. I still ended up back home with a sun burn :(
