Everyone is so hyped about this. It has been four years, and we have been patiently waiting. If you are an avid fan of Olympic Games like me, and want to get involved in the games in Rio 2016, then here are five ways for you to pretend you are in Rio, when the fact that you are not.

  1. Pretend you are not in Hong Kong.rio-mascotGive your room a makeover to give your room the perfect scents of summer. Dress like a Brazilian, for example in vibrant colors, or in yellow and green – their national flag’s color. So basically, what you do here is to convince yourself that you are not in Hong Kong.
  2. Take photos of yourself playing sports.Tennis, Badminton, Volleyball, Swimming, Basketball, Cycling, Archery, Fencing, Golf, Gymnastics, Handball, Judo and etc… there are too many to name. Just go practice the sports you play, and take photos of yourself playing.
  3. Learn Portuguese.And to pretend that you are in Rio, you should learn a few sentences of Portuguese, the official language in Brazil. So after taking the photos of you playing sports, it is time for you to post them on social media such as Facebook, Instagram or Weibo – with captions written in Portuguese.
  4. Make sure your TV / online network is available.Reserve the common room TV if you need to, or make sure you have a stable network to stream the Olympics live. You don’t want any unexpected events ruin the games.
  5. Gather with your friends.Nothing is better than watching your favourite game and chilling out with your friends. Grab some snacks and drinks, and enjoy the time chanting for the team you love, and shouting out to the television with your best buddies.

The above are just some lame excuses for you to pretend you are in Rio. Even though they are lame, they save you from a HKD 10,000 worth round trip tickets to Rio de Janeiro… J

大家都非常雀躍。四年過去了,我們一直在等待,奧運會你終於來了!若你想更加投入在半個地球以外的那場體育盛事,下面是五種生活小把戲,讓你更加貼近里約:

  1. 假裝你不在香港
    重新裝飾一下你的房間,為你的居所加添一點夏日氣息。在衣著色彩上,加點黃加點綠, 令自己猶如親臨巴西。
  2. 自拍運動照片
    網球、羽毛球、排球、游泳、籃球、單車、射箭、劍擊、高爾夫球、體操、手球、柔道等等…… 隨便挑選一些你喜歡的運動,請朋友為自己自拍一番。
  3. 學習葡萄牙語
    想要追逐里約的步伐,一定少不了學習幾句巴西官方語言:葡萄牙語。自拍完畢後,不妨將相片放上Facebook、Instagram或者微博,然後用葡萄牙語寫上兩句感言。
  4. 預備好你的電視
    想要用交誼室的電視機看奧運直播?最好先向保安室或者樓層預留一下。你也可以選擇在網上直接收看。千萬要記得看好節目表,切勿錯過精彩賽事的直播時段!
  5. 與友共聚
    還有什麼事情比起和朋友一同收看奧運更好玩的?記得帶上零食和飲料,和友人一同為自己喜歡的隊伍打氣!

以上只是部分讓你可以稍為脫離現實,沉醉於奧運氣氛的一些小貼士。雖然它們聽起來很傻,但可以節省近萬元港幣的飛機票,又能讓你感受里約,何樂而不為呢?
