Pretty women but no fireworks


Feast of colours: Performers putting up an explosive show during the opening ceremony of 30th SEA Games at the Philippine Arena last night.

THE Philippines lined up its most beautiful and most famous in a one-of-a kind SEA Games opening ceremony that was more extraordinary in that it happened in two different places, 150km from each other.

However, a lockdown in one of the two stadiums raised many questions. The Games cauldron was also not lit last night.
