Today is the Fatt Fatt Fatt day!!

Chinese loves the number 8. 'Fatt' wor, who doesn't like, right? Therefore today is a good day for a lot of chinese. The grand opening ceremony of Olympic in Beijing, a good day to get married .. but it wasn't really a great day to me..

I wanted to get home early today, to watch the grand opening of Olympic at 8:08pm BUT when I was about to pack my things at about 5:50pm, problems started to come in.. Phone calls, emails.. and end up? I didn't get to watch the opening lor.. cos 8pm+ I'm still in the office!! I only get to watch at 11pm!!

How sad...I heard the ceremony, the fireworks were great!! Is it true? Did you guys manage to watch?? This is something which we, the Chinese should really proud of.. this is something BIG, not those dono what largest mooncake, tallest teh tarik...
