I'm sure lots of people out there are super excited as Singappore is hosting the 28th SEA Games this year, after the last hosting 22 years ago. This year, it's especially significant to the republic as it celebrates its 50th year of independence in 2015
Thanks to Theresa, I got hold of 2 tickets to the Opening Ceremony & I got Wendy to join us.
Since I'm slightly early, I went to take some pictures
