The Spectacular 2008 Beijing Olympic Games Opening Ceremony

Last evening’s Beijing Olympics Games Opening was simply spectacular. Incredible details packed into a massive display of Chinese heritage and advance outdoor display technology on the main field and around the top of the “Bird Nest” stadium.

I am particular fond of the spotlight on the four Chinese inventions (Papermarking, Moveable-type printing, Compass and Gunpowder) woved together into the scroll as a common theme. These themes highlights the long history behind the Chinese civilisation. It truly instills a sense of pride among all ethic Chinese and a marvelous showcase of the human spirit.

No doubt at the back of my mind, there is a voice that whispers, “This could be the dawn of a new world order.”
