No, our government is now proposing to bid for the 2023 Asiad, but only less than 40% of our people support this idea.

Objection over the use of govt funds?

Anyway if the Guangzhou people are rich, they are certainly showing it in the fireworks display! I just love watching fireworks along the waterline and on tall structures!

The OCA flag is now taken to the stage as Sun Nan and Mao Amin sing the 16th Asian Games theme song "Reunion" ("Chongfeng" in Chinese).

The flag will be raised to the OCA's anthem, first played at the 1998 Asian Games.

Well, considering chinese invented fireworks, i think this scene worked very well :lol: i think it was simple but cute way of lighting the cauldron.

That is ADORABLE!

Totally what every kid who celebrates Chinese New Year in Asia have experienced!

Precisely man!!! The way the last torch bearer plays along just adds to the humour! :D

Gosh I am feeling so proud to be Chinese again, just like the way I felt in 2008! :D

A diver has just lit the cauldron along with two children from the beginning of this ceremony! They lit a wick (with a Chinese design on its pot) and pyrotechn ics shot up into the cauldron!

Now the finale: Tan Jing singing the song roughly titled "Smile". With fireworks of course, at least later.

To be honest i think the torch relay video would have worked beter if shown before the cauldron lighting
