Talk about badminton

Just finish watching Yonex Sunrise BWF World Championships men double. It was a really exciting game, 1 score after another. I felt like want to write something about badminton :D

When talk about badminton match, the first thing came into my mind is my father. My father is neither a badminton player nor a coach. I used to watch a lot of badminton matches with him before I went to other town for study starting from Form 4. The scene we both sit in front of the TV at old house, the scene we chat about the match, the old time players, Yang Yang, Sidek brothers, the famous men double ( I forgot their name, just remember one of them has the name Beng, and with surname Cheah), the unforgotable Foo Chee Keong's spirit and so on.

Badminton and ping pong were very popular sport during my primary school time, especially in Chinese school, even though in chinese school of village like mine. There were no indoor badminton court at the school, we have to play according to the wind situation :) Sometimes we even play badminton on the road. Well, in kampung, the traffic is less and it is considered safe to do so last time :) It has been more than 15 years I have not hold a badminton racket, and I think my racket was probably move by the mouse also :p Who move my badminton racket? haha.

Now, lots of youngters probably still catching up on ping pong, badminton and other sports, but using PS or Wii :p
