King’s Day (Koningsdag) is each year held on the 27th of April, the birthday of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands. Traditionally people chose to wear clothes that are partly or completely orange as a reference to the national color of the Netherlands.

Since 2000, my parents are the proud owners of a typical Dutch snackbar. For King’s Day, they wear this bright orange shirt that says ‘Holland’ on the back.

Holland - or 荷蘭 (‘Ho Laán’) as my parents often say - embodies their commitment to their second home country. The portraits were taken moments after they closed the snackbar.
