In a previous post, I shared some thoughts and photos about two boards in a lane of Kham Thien street, Dong Da district. They was decorated last year but left blank this year. Sadly, such blank boards are quite common this year.
During the Tet holiday, I used to go consecutively across several residential areas without seeing any decorated one. Of course, most of them could have been disused since years ago. However, a lot of boards on which the local(s) still wrote and drew carefully last year only includes simple A4 sheets of paper this year. Furthermore, I realized five in six no-longer-decorated boards were in my Dong Da district. I have prepared for this scenario but still find it so downhearted.
Now I’m wondering if I should go to visit these places next year. Maybe I should, although all I would see next year could still be blank boards.
