Last Saturday was the opening ceremony of the 29th Southeast Asian Games held in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.  11 countries will be competing for this event such as, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Myanmar, Indonesia, Brunei, Timor-Leste, Lao PDR, Vietnam and Cambodia.  The athletes will be giving their very best to win the gold for their respective countries. My country, Philippines, will be competing for 39 games.   The opening ceremony was simple but nice especially the parade of nations and the lightning of the torch.  I am proud of these athletes who do this sacrifices for the love of their country.  The games will last for two weeks.  I will pray for the safety of all the participating athletes.

The country has won three gold medals on the recent medal tally, and still counting.  More games to compete and lots of medals that is up for grabs.  Last night, the men’s national team for basketball won their games against their Thailand opponent.  This is a good start for basketball team, more games to come and I pray that they will continue the winning streak to the final.  I am looking forward for the volleyball teams, I am so excited to see the powerful attacks and smash in the volleyball court.  Good luck team Philippines, you all make us proud to be a Filipino.  Go fight for the country’s pride and bring home more golds for the country.
