8 Days To Go

8 more days to go till Beijing kick off the 2008 Summer Olympic Games on 08.08.08 at 8.08pm Beijing time. This once-in-a-lifetime date and time must be specially selected as the Chinese word of number 8 is read as "ba" which sounds like "fa" - the Chinese word for fortune and prosperity.

Hosting the biggest sporting event on Earth is the pride and joy of all Chinese, especially so for the Chinese in Beijing. Modern architectures and skyscrapers doted the city skyline, and with the old world charm of ancient China, Beijing is ready and set to welcome and play a good host to the ten of thousands of athletes, officials, and tourists that are expected to converge in the city.

After an excruciating 4 years of waiting, the end to the wait is in sight and the countdown towards One World One Dream is truly on for all sports fans. Let the Games begin!

I'm enjoying them so far... I'm so glad the opening ceremonies weren't boycotted! We would have missed out on a show that really did highlight the One World One Dream theme :)

Yeah, the opening ceremony was one heck of a epic extravaganza! It will be talk about for years to come.
