Olympics Opening Ceremony

It was absolutely amazing! Only the Chinese can do them! I was so touched by how much dedication each and every participant in the event put into their performances and responsibilities. One could really see it although things must have been so hard. But they. were able to do it. The show was spectacular, including the fireworks and other high tech things and shows. China can afford to have lots of people and do all those things using many materials. As they are the producers of cloths, fireworks and the like, of course it has to be all out celebration and show! I wonder what the people were feeling … they must be proud to showcase their rich culture, arts and talents. I myself felt good also to see my fellow Asians capable of staging that amazing opening ceremony. It is indeed a tribute to the ingenuity of the Chinese. Congratulations for a job well done! It is also a great feeling that for at least a few hours people forgot their problems and just watched the amazing display of colors and techniques! I had goose pimples to watch them running with the olympic torch and the special effects on the screen! I even got a bit misty eyed when I watched all those athletes parading, all with hopes of making history or just to experience how it is to be in the olympics! Especially I was waiting for my fellow Pinoys as they paraded. I saw Manny Pacquiao waving the flag. I did not recognize anyone else but I am glad that despite our country’s problems, they are able to go…and I wish them all the best!!

  2. thanks for reading my blog. that’s just one part of my opinion, no one can discount the fact of how amazing it was. your suggestion about the athletes taking part is ok but remember that the athletes themselves would be busy with all their training prior to the games and where will they find the time to practice some dance performance? maybe some but not all? i wouldn’t know as well. i had other thoughts on the ceremony, such as how much all the burnt fireworks contributed to the carbon emission and overall air pollution index? and how will they dispose of all the materials used? other environmental implications and the like? hope they have also considered the “after” event.
