Fresh baked “Fong Bao” from the oven – 方包出爐

Random musings & meditations straight from the oven. Hopefully some food for thought as well…

On Your Mark. Get Set. Go!

It was a typical Wednesday morning at the office in Chinatown but some of us were keenly aware of what was about to happen a few blocks away at G.M. Place. A couple of my colleagues were actually selected to attend the special event.

The day was July 2nd, 2003.

The event was a live broadcast of the IOC announcement of the winning bid to host the 2010 Winter Olympics.

It seemed so far away at the time but now we are only 2 weeks away from the opening ceremony.

And I’m about to embark on an experience of a lifetime.

The uniform has been picked up and my last training session will take place on Sunday. A week from today I will start my first shift as an Olympic volunteer.

Between now and the end of the Paralympics in March, I hope to share with you some of the sights and sounds of this once-in-a-generation event, both from a volunteer and a spectator perspective.

Stay tune for  Fong Bao’s Aventures Olympiques (F.BAO)
