Audience bowled over by spectacular show at Singapore Indoor Stadium

The crowd was treated to splendid performances at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on 29 June 2009 that will be embedded in their memories for a long time to come. A dazzling showcase of colours and music that tantalises the senses, the Opening Ceremony of the inaugural Asian Youth Games (AYG) was a spectacle to behold.

Kept entertained from the start to the very end, the audience was in high spirits as they fervently roared the AYG cheers and did the Kallang Wave with admirable synchronicity. FRASIA, our beloved AYG mascot, made its appearance and the crowd eagerly whisked out their cameras to take memorable pictures as he did his signature three poses of Friendship, Respect and Excellence.
