One perk about living in Singapore is the fact that we are in the same time-zone as China. Most of the time, this isn't a huge advantage, but when it comes to the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics, it is. Josh and I were able to watch the Ceremonies LIVE last night, but in order to watch them live in CA we would have had to get up at 5AM (which means, we wouldn't have watched them!).
If you didn't get a chance to watch the Ceremonies, you missed out. They were amazing. The choreography was stunning. There were over 4000 dancers/drummers/etc. . . and as far as I could tell, every single one of them carried out a flawless performance. As far as I am concerned, Beijing takes the gold medal for Best Opening Ceremonies.
