28th SEA Games Singapore 2015 Day 2 - Table Tennis

28th SEA Games 2015 is finally here in Singapore!

Super excited about it because this is the first time I am watching SEA Games live.
The last time SEA Games was held in Singapore was way back in 1993, it has finally returned to Singapore again after a 22-year long hiatus. This is the fourth time Singapore is hosting the Southeast Asian Games.

SEA Games will be held in Singapore from June 5 to 16, a total of 36 sports and 402 events will feature in the 12-day fiesta.

Which sports are you heading down to give your root support?

I was at Singapore Sports Hub to check out the SEA Games carnival as well as to watch my first ever Table Tennis match. Thanks CL for the ticket.

Table Tennis take place from Jun 1 - Jun 8 with 67 Athletes involved.
Admission fee to watch this sport is $20.

Say hello to Nila, 28th SEA Games mascot.

The name "Nila" is inspired by Sang Nila Utama, the founder of Singapura. The red mane symbolises the burning Passion for sports and the heart-shaped face represents Friendship created through competition. 

I want a Nila plushie.

One of the carnival activities are UnionPay Hot Air Balloon.
Each hot air balloon ride can accommodate a maximum of 3 passengers and 1 pilot. Ticket is required.

So many sports that I want to watch!!!!!


Let's strive for gold, go Team Singapore.

A total of 11 countries are involved in SEA Games 2015. They are Singapore, Vietnam, Timor Leste, Thailand, Philippines, Myanmar, Malaysia, Laos, Indonesia, Cambodia and Brunei.

The Table Tennis match was held at Singapore Indoor Stadium. 
The once familiar concert venue has transformed into a competition venue.

The men's and women's team match took place concurrently in the Indoor Stadium. My eyes will be busy later catching the different match.

Today's match:
Men's team: Thailand vs Vietnam
Men's team: Indonesia vs Philippines
Women's team: Malaysia vs Thailand
Women's team: Singapore vs Vietnam

Followed by Vietnam.

Team Philippines and Team Indonesia.

Team Singapore.

The match for men's team group B match 6 kickstart: 
Indonesia vs Philippines. 

One minute break for both team.

Let's go, Singapore!
Let's go!

It was an eye-opener event for me, there was never a moment I felt bored. But just a pity that I didn't get to watch Feng Tianwei played live because Singapore won all the 3 games, so there was no need for her to play. Super excited, especially the match of Indonesia against Philippines, they liked to smack the ping pong high and it bounced higher than normal. Awesome match.

Not sure when the next SEA Games would come to Singapore, grab this opportunity to watch as many games as you can. It's a different experience watching it live compared to watching it from television or online.
