  1. ^^ Vietnam has changed a lot on the last two decades. I'm sure they will be able to do something nice in two years. As for the handover itself, not so sure since they still have not unveiled their logo. Cambodia in 2023 is the one which also intrigues me as how they will do it since they never hosted anything big in the past and like Vietnam have changed a lot.
  2. Opening ceremony of the 2019 SEA Games. For a Fivecurrents production, it was honestly somewhat of a letdown, not sure if it has to do with either the budget or the limitations of doing this in an indoor arena (which is not the same as a football one, since Philippine Arena is mostly for basketball, concenrts and INC masses). Lightning of the cauldron, being prerecorded, was probably the most controversial part of it. Still, it had a couple of nice moments, and Apple de App from Black Eyed Peas performed.
  3. Emperor's cup final in early January will be the first ever event played here in the finally finished olympic stadium.
  4. Very small, concert-type opening ceremony, but overall actually decent. The letdown was the fact the lightning of the cauldron happened in a different place (New Clark City) and it seems to have been prerecorded days before the opening ceremony.
  5. Opening ceremony to being in some minutes https://youtu.be/H05QGG02inM
  6. As we near the opening ceremony of the 2019 SEA Games in the Philippines (which will be done by Fivecurrents), someone uploaded the opening ceremony of the 1991 SEA Games in Manila. These were held just a few years after the country recovered it's democracy with the victory of the People Power Revolution.
  7. Games are nearing their begin and almost everything is ready. However as it seems to be typical, they're rushing at last minute to finish details. New Clark City venues such as the main stadium for the athletics and swiming events are fully ready now. But others like Rizal Memorial Coliseum renovation works are still in proccess. The new stadium looks infinitely better than the decrepit old Rizal stadium in Manila. Also I appreciate they didn't went overkill with its capacity considering the Kuala Lumpur stadium was often empty at the last SEA Games. While the logo is terrible, the branding is actually interesting and puts focus on a sport theme rather than the culture of the country https://www.mattnisbet.com/seagames2019 Torch and medals (Torch is based on the philippine national flower, Sanpaguita) Opening Ceremony will be produced by Fivecurrents, which is already known by most of you for many of their previous works (Salt Lake 2002 ceremonies, Sochi 2014 closing, the 2007 and 2011 Pan Am games, Jakarta Palembang 2018 ceremonies, etc). They will hold it on the Philippine Arena instead of a conventional stadium though, so it will be interesting to see how they pull it out in such a small stage. Stage is being set at the moment.
  8. Finally we got a clear pic from the inside. Pretty much ready I say.
  9. Thank you very much for your contributions to this forum, HeisPongsatorn. I have been trying to locate the full opening ceremony of Chiang Mai 1995. Sadly, all there isn in Youtube is the full Bird Tongchai performance which I posted on this thread some days ago. I managed to obtain the RAW opening ceremony of Bangkok 1998 (no TV comments) which is uploaded in my account, but i've always wished to see the show Chiang Mai put before the Asiad, specially now that we're nearing yet another edition of the SEA Games in the Philippines. Any help would be really appreciated.
  10. Samaranch was going to give the games to Barcelona either way, to be honest. I don't trust the guy who let Atlanta and SLC win, specially after all the evidence which came out about the later.
  11. As one of the main producer of european comics, they should just stick with their BD characters or make one inspired on these. How about bringing back good old Asterix to represent Paris , like he did on the ill fated 1992 bid.
  12. Bird Thongchai complete performance at 1995 SEA Games opening in Chiang Mai. By the way it seems Five Currents will be in charge of this year SEA Games opening in Philippines.
