Bahasa Indonesia is actually acceptable, but not only "Bahasa" is not. Back then in high school, we have a English teacher who always reminds her younger colleague about this since the younger teacher always say "You're not allowed to speak Bahasa in class".

My Spanish teachers have always said the same. I still speak English because I’m not that into Spanish. I have nothing against people who speak Spanish, it’s just not for me. I want to learn some more exotic languages.

But as I said before, both of them have not-so-good opening. I still prefer Singapore though, we can look for real time update easier and the accuracy is very high (no sudden revision).

I would say that both 2015 and 2017 are still a bit better than 2019. The games have been fine despite the terrible organization, and I loved the ceremony, but the results and streaming situation is much less than ideal, and that’s a big deal breaker for me.

God I hate people. There’s a whole bunch of people talking about the good YouTube channel in ESPN5s stream chat right now. Idiots! They’re going to ruin it for us all. That’s why I keep my streams private when I do stuff like that. Common sense. Don’t tell the host broadcaster about a channel broadcasting their stuff, and then recommend people to watch that channel instead of theirs. Honestly is common sense not a thing in :PHI.

 

This post is usually negative for me, but I’m understandably (at least I hope) upset by this.

First time in ages that I’ve seen a multi-sports games hold Diving and Swimming on the same day and at the same venue. Only other case that comes to mind is the 2018 CAC Games, and maybe the 2017 SEA Games.

In Beach modern pentathlon, Indonesian athletes only get the one gold despite finishing 1-2. Why? Because of a sudden rule change which allows 1 country to get one medal.

 

So from INA-INA-THA, it became INA-THA-PHI...

 

 

I hereby proclaim the host's crimes have already surpassed KL 2017

What were KL2017’s host crimes? I’m sure there were a few, I just can’t remember any.

Two of the infamous incidents are the absence of the video review in sepak takraw and when a Malaysian silat athlete suddenly won the match after he got injured by his opponent.

@Olympian1010 lol looks like I have to retract my statement about a new level in host's crime.

 

Apparently the manager either did not read the amended rules or unable to understand the English

Up until the 1980 Summer Olympics, they used to hold swimming and diving simultaneously at the same venue.
