    By now, some of you hot blooded guys would be swearing for the most important things, rite? Sure, let me indulge you in how, err, I made preparations to capture the most captivating images and delicate curves .....

    First - the training:

    I went to downtown Jakarta by one of the cheapest means of public transportation available, for "centralized sneaky picture taking training".

    Transjakarta1.jpg
    Hop in to the Transjakarta busway

    Transjakarta2.jpg
    Where you should expect to stand - half of the bus is already allocated to women

    Statue1.jpg Ostrich.jpg Statue2.jpg Pedati1.jpg Pedati2.jpg
    My training pictures - as you can see, none of the statues and, err, horse noticed me taking their pics. Yup, I am primed for battle already ......

    Here Comes ........

    ......... the pictures of the Arena at night ....... Haa, I bet someone was already talking "Djarum Girls" or "BliBli Pan Am Stewardess". Patience is a virtue.

    As the day turned into night, it was prime time to ...

    Nite.jpg nite2.jpg
    Go and grab some dinner .....

    nite badminton.jpg
    While others prefer to play badminton

    nite supporters.jpg
    Supporters eyes glued to ......

    nite tv.jpg
    ..... this TV screen, as the battle between INA and CHN XD went to its climactic end

    nite indonesia.jpg
    while chanting IN-DO-NE-SIA, prok prok prok prok prok (sound of the "battle"sticks)

    nite facade.jpg
    Others just stay out ..... idly waiting for their loved ones

    nite support wall.jpg
    Some take advantage of the Support Wall

    nite bc.jpg
    Which I indulged in too ......

    It is now time to show .........

    ....... the players antics on court.

    Some of the most memorable moves here:

    MoveINAWD.jpg
    Desperate dive from Meiliana Jauhari, and the shuttle landed in to Japanese disbelief .....

    The Danish MD combination may not have won the title, but they had the best gameplan ever - one that practically demolished the visibly slow Malaysian combo .....

    Pics here:

    Mogensen smashes, and the defensive return goes right to Boe racquet arm. Perfect!!!

    This is the first time ........

    ........ since 1998 that I have not stayed anywhere within the Senayan-Semanggi area when going for INA Open. In fact, I went back to Central Jakarta - where most of top ten hotels are (bar Hotel Mulia, of course).

    Pictures of the area:

    viewbhi1.jpg viewbhi2.jpg viewbhi3.jpg
    This is the HI Circus (Bundaran HI) - which is close to the hotel where I stayed in

    viewmonas.jpg viewmonas2.jpg
    And if you are up to it - you could walk all the way to the National Monument

    This loud Korean lady coach ordered 4 packs of "Nasi Gorang" (yup, that's how she pronounced it) to power up Sung Ji Hyun's engine - unfortunately it backfired against Indian Curry .......

    The Indian Contingent came in full force .........

    Net1.jpg Net2.jpg Net3.jpg Net4.jpg Net5.jpg Net6.jpg

    During the match, the Indians were assisted by this Indonesian cheearleader .........

    LXR1.jpg
    Forcing LXR to leave this shuttle in ......

    LXR2.jpg LXR3.jpg

    Synchronized "Swimming" on Court ......

    Ever heard of Synchronized Swimming? That was pretty much how the Korean MD pair celebrated upon winning the final point .......

    Here's a 22 frame depiction of their pursuit of happiness ...... thus providing more work for the court mopper.

    Delite1.jpg Delite2.jpg Delite3.jpg Delite4.jpg Delite5.jpg Delite6.jpg Delite7.jpg Delite8.jpg Delite9.jpg Delite10.jpg Delite11.jpg Delite12.jpg Delite13.jpg Delite14.jpg Delite15.jpg Delite16.jpg Delite17.jpg Delite18.jpg Delite19.jpg Delite20.jpg Delite21.jpg Delite22.jpg

    Best victory celebration by far .....

    Their synchronization was a little off in the middle of their routine and JJS came off their dismount early. I'm afraid I can only give them a 7.375

    You are too generous, madbad. I would have given them a fiver, with LYD never moving a muscle once he lay sprawling on the floor.
