Opening ceremony

After our breakfast with the Silver ferns, oh, and did I say that Irene van Dyk came and sat at our table, not only at our table but right next to me? I ended up being her assistant, lining up autographs and photo opportunities before we managed to get our own. The whole team was very accommodating with photos and autographs, and everyone was very friendly. They seemed a well oiled, highly organized and motivated team. Bring it on!

After our amazing start to the morning, we headed out for more sightseeing utilizing the Hop On Hop Off bus. We headed out to join up with Alex’s friend Oak and we all went out for a sightseeing tour around the city, taking in the sights, sounds and smells.

We are surrounded by amazing architecture from cutting edge, new through to the old.

After sightseeing, it was time to make our way on the MRT to the stadium for the opening ceremony and the first game. We have the most amazing seats, mid court side seats.

We watched the first game Botswana playing Singapore which was a good game to watch, the Botswana team have an amazing group of supporters in tow who are very loud and musical. All in all, a good day. We headed back to our hotel stopping off in a side mall to grab a bite to eat.

Oh, and for those of you wondering, yes, it is like being in a sauna out of the air-conditioned comfort of hotel, stadium, or shops.
