blueview here coming back from the grave.
The ceremonies were decent enough, getting to and from the venue Philippine Arena is a pain. The venue plan was scattered again like in 2005. I wen there with another GB forumer, bong, whom I worked on the fantasy expo bid Manila 2020 some time back. Bong actually worked with the "looks" team, and from what he says, the organization was chaotic to put it mildly.
Ceremonies needed 3dmapping, such a wasted opportunity. the stadium was only 2/3 full. the lighting was a downer, how we wished that there was an actual cauldron outside the arena when we exited after but there was none. The closing ceremonies is just blah.
