The crowd at Philippine Arena in Bulacan erupted in applause and deafening cheers when members of the national team that will participate in the Southeast Asian Games made their way to center stage during the opening ceremonies on Saturday.

With Hotdog's iconic hit "Manila" playing in the background, the Filipino athletes and delegates numbering more than a thousand walked into the arena accompanied by Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach amid a sea of cellphone-toting spectators taking images of the moment.
