Day #1 of the Torch Relay is drawing to a close at Nanyang Polytechnic, where I hear that the celebrations are in full swing. Although I didn’t get the chance to leave my very cold meatlocker office, I’ve seen some tweets, pics, twitpics and videos that are just goosebump-inducing.
@jk_lsy tweeted, “The MOMENT of holding the YOG torch might be just a moment, but the MEMORY will last a lifetime. Thank you @Singapore2010!
@jasatan tweeted, “Just accomplished e most glorious moment in my life..bearing the torch of the Youth Olympic Games”
Without sounding cheesy and melodramatic, I can see what Jeremy meant when he said that Vancouver only woke up with the flame at their doorstep.
It’s as if Singaporeans have suddenly woken up to YOG-mania. Even with the pouring rain.
And this was my favourite pic of the day:
If you’re flame-mad now (like the rest of Singapore), you can track the flame through the 6-day torch relay with this handy page. Our videos on the torch relay are also coming up shortly. I think you’ll like them. 🙂
