Learning to see the world in my childhood – Colours of the Rainbow

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “ROY G. BIV.”

I remember repeating the colours of the rainbow over a long period of time, actively attempting to memorise the colours from red to violet, and recite them backwards from violet to red.

I repeated the colours of the rainbow in Mandarin,

“红 (hong),橙 (cheng),黄 (huang),绿 (lue),蓝 (lan),靛 (dian),紫 (zi)。”

And I repeated the colours of the rainbow in English,

“Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.”

Eventually, I could identify these colours easily and name them.

The colours of the rainbow always bring up fond memories of my childhood. And if seen together, they would stop me in my tracks, just like this one:

Rows of umbrellas in every colour of the rainbow hanging from invisible threads .

What a wonderful way to decorate and provide shelter for an eatery.

Enjoy your meal!
