    London 2012 – read #11

    It’s been a long while since I posted a reading post, lots has happened, saw many things, flew too many times haha. Right now, just enjoy the olympics! Once in a life time! … which was exactly what I said 2 years ago at the Vancouver winter Olympics haha, time goes by so fast, never would’ve guessed that I’d be where I am now, maybe this’ll be a new trend, Sochi next, then on to Brazil!

    Anyway, I got to go see beach volleyball and badminton yesterday. Despite people’s perception of watching beach vball, I personally really like the sport. Beach, sand, bring some beer, play some ball, sooo awesome… I really miss playing beach vball rec league back at Navarik ;/ Also watching badminton really made me miss playing too, so when I go back I’m definitely gonna play some. Was lucky enough last night to watch Canada and Taiwan played, the Canada team player names were Bruce / Li! You can’t lose with a name combo like that! So of course we won, vs Australia too ;p On the other hand, team Taiwan had to play team China lol, and lost big time. The saddest moment though, was when the Japan player Sato hurt her leg, and she had to leave the game. She tried to play on for a few more shots but she was just hopping around the court, and gave up in the end… these athletes are really something. She walked off crying, it must’ve been so devastating, so brutal, 4 years of training, ended… =(

    The Month of May

    omg I haven’t blog for sooo long, i blame diablo 3, i blame everything on diablo 3, let’s do a quick overview of the last month of #uklife, we can track it with my pics on flickr!

    Cambridge

    Nice little town, fancy colleges, I wanted to rent a boat and push with a stick, but it rained, that’s all I remembered.

    London Olympic Stadium Opening

    Me and my flatmate Linda went to the opening of the Olympic Stadium, which was pretty sweet (and cheap too! £20 for ticket), they did some pre lim competition, and then some celebrities came out (like Sporty Spice!), and… there’s not much else to say about it. They came up with this card stock fan thing for people to make noise and cheer, and it was damn effective, so cheap too, geniuses. So now I don’t have to try to find an event to go during Olympics just to see the place, though I still want to see the Aquatic Center, too bad diving costs a million pounds. (more…)
