today’s holiday: Chung Yeung


Chung Yeung

A Chinese holiday, Chung Yeung is the second family-remembrance day of the year.

It is a public holiday in some places, including Hong Kong and Macau. More… Discuss

In the lead up to the Battle of Leyte Gulf, the Royal Australian Navy’s HMAS Australia became perhaps the first ship damaged by a kamikaze. How many kamikaze attacks did it survive? More… Discuss

Queen Tamar
