I thought that I wouldn't have the chance to watch any live Olympic games although I am in England during the Olympic period !
Have you read my previous post, titled Olympic torch relay in Sheffield ???
If no, I am gonna say it loud here that SAMSUNG gave us FREE Olympic tickets to watch Olympic football game in Old Trafford !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes readers, it is FREE :)
How excited is that, can you imagine that ? hehe
We took the train to Manchester then we boarded the FREE shuttle bus to Old Trafford !
We didn't know that we were able to watch 2 matches in a single day with a single ticket until someone told us that day !!!
Super duper E-X-C-I-T-E-D !
1st match : Egypt vs New Zealand
2nd match : Brazil vs Belarus
BRAZIL errrrrrrrrrrr !!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
We arrived almost 2 hours earlier as we need to get through security checks and to our seats ! (and we would have plenty of time for photo session :P)
Large bags (over 25 litres), bottles, cans, laser pointer, liquids, aerosols and gels in quantities greater than 100ml, any article that might be used as a weapon and many more are prohibited !!
Luckily we read the visitor information carefully before we went there :)
Before we went through the security checks, we had to empty our pockets and place our belongings, such as keys and mobile phones, into a provided plastic bag.
The security would check our bags and make sure that there are no prohibited things inside our bags. Then, he/she would seal our bags with a big plastic bag.
However, one of them didn't seal up me, Yu En and Fong Yee's bags ... he said that we would be able to get into the stadium with this small size of bags.
Before we entered the stadium, we had to go through body check too ! *strict security check*
The security stopped the 3 of us, asked us to go through the security check and get our bags sealed up with plastic bag first.
What duh ? We had to queue up for the second time just because of their miscommunication ?
Luckily, one of the security helped us and get our bags sealed up very quickly.. Thanks :)
After went through the body check, the security would take off the big plastic bag and return our bags to us ! Phew~~~
Once I got into stadium, I got so excited and ummm.......
I didn't know how to express my feeling in words. So sorry for that !
To cut short, I felt so EXCITED ! haha
I thought that we were going to sit at the back of the stadium !
BUT NO !
SAMSUNG gave us a good seats !!!!!!!
I ♥ SAMSUNG so much !!!
