Indeed, seeing local celebrities paint their timelines with all kinds of colours and prints for Heritage Day throughout Thursday was a refreshing sight. And we, being very vigilant in following the lives of those who make lots of money from looking like themselves, were rather overly excited to find out who decided to wear what as part of taking it back to the roots and celebrating their heritage.
