The Southeast Asian Games is the biggest multi sport event in the Southeast Asian region. Top athletes from 11 countries will compete and aim for the much coveted gold medals. There will be 51 sporting events that will simultaneously be played from 19th to 30th August 2017.
This biennial games was supposed to be held in Brunei this year but they backed out for being not ready so Malaysia took over. Next one which will be on 2019 will be held in the Philippines.
Right at this time of writing, I already can feel the excitement for the people here in Malaysia. For us huge sports enthusiasts, this is a big deal. What it means for me as a photographer is that I love sports very much and my competitiveness in me drives me to get into sports and play as much as I can. But I am not into this level, I admit that so, I will stick to what I do love as much as sports and that is photography. For me, they come together. As much as I can, I will look for a way I can watch and at the same time take some pictures of the athletes playing or anyone attending the event.
One definite thing though, I will attend the opening ceremony. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me so I did not hesitate to purchase a ticket. This will be awesome.
Do watch out for the photos and videos I will be posting before and after the event.
Check back soon.
