O2...


The Millennium Dome was meant to commemerate the turn of the millennium. But due to its high costs and economic non-viability, it was shut down soon after and most of its exhibits removed. It's renamed as O2 and now refurbished into an entertainment hub with a 23,000 seater concert venue and a number of restaurants with some shops.

Went down to O2 yesterday. was rather a letdown. I don't really see myself going there agin unless I'm going to attend a concert. Btw, Elton John's holding his Red Piano concert there in Sep. O2 reminds me a hybrid of Esplanade and Suntec... only that it doesn't have the view of the Esplanade and the variety of shops in Suntec. It was a letdown, I would say. However, a Civil Eng student may find the manner in which the cables are hoisting up the tent interesting...
