My Tita Vo and I also went to ExCel centre to watch the Olympics live - we watched boxing at 830pm: the Men's light weight, middle weight and super heavy weight. It was definitely fun to watch especially when Team GB was competing.I remember getting on the train at exactly 12 midnight and getting home about 1am.
I finally bought an Olympics and Paralympics 2012 t-shirt as well. The atmosphere is great because of the support that people give to their respective teams. National pride at the very best! Just like my friend MW with his exposure on the big screen. (Proud Pinoy!) Plus to bump into a couple of familiar faces as volunteers is certainly funny. The only thing lacking in this whole experience is to go to the Olympic Park. No, I haven't been to the Olympic Park. I think I'll try and sneak in on Monday, after or while the athletes have or are leaving. Hahahaha! There has been so much anticipation to the Olympics and Paralympics, and it might actually feel weird that it is all over. No more pick signs on display, no more special lanes, no need to 'Get Ahead of the Games' as they say here.
Go Team GB. Go Team PH. Olympic/Paralympic hangover to begin. sigh.
