    The Men's Doubles Final ..... where double standards come into play ......

    :eek: What!!? Double standards?!! :eek:

    Yes indeed. Double standards reared their, ahem, lovely heads as soon as Hendra Setiawan and Mohd Ahsan prepared to move in to teach the Korean men a lesson.

    Four lovely heads powered by an all girl bodyguard squad with "body-lighting armour" protected the Indonesian from harm on the move to the battleground.

    Once the Koreans were blown apart by another showcase of, err, accurate placements and reduced power shots, another beautiful head popped up to do the interviews ....... a privilege no other winner ever enjoyed ...... before and since :p

    Indeed, the Koreans can feel hard done by this very "unfair" treatment ....... wakakakaka.

    Bodyguard1.jpg Bodyguard2.jpg
    No less than four well-shaped "bodyguards" protected the INA heroes ....

    INAMD enter.jpg
    ..... as they came in to execute "The Pride of The Nation" (that's the Djarum slogan, taken from the Cap they sell at the Djarum Merchandise Stalls and BliBli Emporium)

    flag on.jpg
    They were supported well by this flag .....

    batikmen.jpg
    .... as well as men in batik sarongs ......

    Ghost1.jpg Ghost2.jpg
    .... and even ghosts took a break from their usual haunts to enjoy the game ......

    Camera special.jpg
    The whole press camera crew fully focused - as in focused their cameras, of course .....

    INA determination.jpg
    Looks of determination from the home team ......

    KSH salvo.jpg
    ..... as they prepare to absorb KSH's salvo ....

    At the end of game one .....

    KOR coach.jpg
    .... the Korean Coach shouted expletives to his misfiring team .....

    INA coaches.jpg
    ..... while his Indonesian counterparts were calmly plotting their strategies .....

    KOR fire1.jpg KOR fire2.jpg KOR fire3.jpg
    The Korean pair brought in their battle cannons .....

    KSH shirt.jpg
    ..... but the only "damage" was inflicted to their shirts ......

    INAwon1.jpg INAwon2.jpg INAwon3.jpg INAwon4.jpg INAwon5.jpg INAwon6.jpg
    And so the Indonesians took home the last Indonesian Premier Super Series title to be won under the Djarum banner ..... Ahsan is from Djarum anyway, very fitting too.

    Leggybeauty.jpg leggybeauty2.jpg leggybeauty3.jpg
    ..... and the grand prize was, an interview with this leggy beauty.

    Finally .... we have the Mixed Doubles Final - the longest match

    People question why the Mixed Doubles match was the last of the matches played .... but as clawhammers described, it was because Indonesia was expected to feature in that match, as Towi/Lily did for the last two years .....

    Unfortunately, not this time. And so the raging battle between the Danes and the Chinese Olympic and World Champions go on, for the 13th edition with honours shared at 6-6 before the match.

    Fischer blaze.jpg
    Fischer started with blazing attacks ....

    DEN coach.jpg
    .... with the tacit approval of his, err, two coaches ....

    ZYL bemused.jpg
    These caused a lot of discomfort to Zhao Yunlei ...

    ZYL kiss.jpg
    ..... and so she whispered to her partner, "Play better and I will give you a kiss, and more ....."

    ZN prepare.jpg
    With that in mind, Zhang Nan felt more energized ....

    ZYL net.jpg
    ..... while his pretty partner managed to push Pedersen out of the frontcourt .....

    Something drastic had to be done .....

    Fischer midriff.jpg
    .... and so Joachim Fischer exposed his midriff ......

    ZN down.jpg
    ..... causing Zhang Nan to collapse .....

    Fischer happy.jpg
    ..... and allowing Fischer to celebrate the forcing of a rubber ....

    CHNXD win1.jpg CHNXD win2.jpg CHNXD win3.jpg CHN XD Win4.jpg
    But there's no mistaking Olympic and World pedigree .....

    CHN interview1.jpg CHN interview2.jpg
    ..... as the Chinese pair got control of the microphone.

    XD Prize Presentations ....

    The last finals pictures are here :

    Err, not the absolute last, mind you. The Glorious Djarum Girls have not yet been introduced to this BC World ..... but that is still a world away ...... told u u gotta wait a long long time .....:p

    DEN Blew it.jpg
    "Damn it, we blew it!!" said Fischer in anger .....

    Fischer scold.jpg
    "And it's your fault!!!" he added unsportingly .....

    Meanwhile ..... Zhao Yunlei showed off her medal to the spectators behind here .....
    ZYL see this.jpg
    ZYL : See this? We are invincible, baby!!!
    ZN : Yeah, just so long as you fulfil your end of the bargain .....

    ZYL tired one.jpg
    ZYL : Err, about that ..... Can we take a rain check and do it later, as in when we're back in China?

    ZN deal is a deal.jpg
    ZN : Hallo!!! I worked my socks off for that deal, you're mine tonight ......

    XD winners.jpg XD Winners2.jpg
    Distinguished presenters for the XD event, I think you guys know at least the legendary Christian Hadinata (2nd from left), and on the extreme right, the soon to be legendary PBSI external liaison officer.

    It was a very well run tournament, as all Djarum sponsored events are.

    But of course, we should not forget those unsung heroes, who were not as visible as the players, coaches, PBSI external liaison official and umpires ...... well except the DIO bird, that is.

    Thus, we humbly say our thanks to the following ....

    birds.jpg
    .... the flock of birds who could not fly .......

    workers.jpg
    .... the group of Djarum workers, enjoying their break to get free view of the proceedings .....

    referee.jpg
    .... the famous Olympic Tournament Referee, Mr Torsten Berg. Seen here, ahem, drinking on the job .....

    Camman.jpg Camman2.jpg Camman3.jpg
    ..... the cameramen, working hard to give us extremely nice pictures .....

    GillnJim1.jpg GillnJim2.jpg
    .... and of course, Gillian Clark and Jim Laugesen, for giving us the benefit of expert commentary. This year, their seating area had been turned into a bunker of sorts ..... so that no other spectator could get very close.

    But of course, we also had ......

    russiankiss.jpg
    ...... err, emotional scenes from Ivanov and Sozonov .....

    Being the Russian binoculars as they are, the Russians (as in the binoculars) are very proficient in tracking eye candy of their own nationality. And so, in lieu of the, ahem, still missing Djarum Girls, I hereby present to you ......

    russian1.jpg russian2.jpg russian3.jpg russian4.jpg
    ....the Gorgeous Russians .....

    Clawhammers came quite early on finals day, because of this ......
    programme.jpg
    ..... the programme to honour the great Taufik Hidayat .......

    Pictures of surroundings ......

    If you remember, last year, Djarum almost, err, practically destroyed the Istora with huge badminton shuttlecocks doing a lot of "damage" to the building ..... I believe the repair jobs cost them billions, of Indonesian Rupiahs.

    You can refer to last year's thread for the pics on how bad it was ....

    Luckily, this year, they were more discreet .......

    Giantshuttle1.jpg Giantshuttle2.jpg
    The gigantic shuttles made a return .....

    And Now .... it's time to show ......

    .....the Djarum Girls' successors.

    Djarum went all out to establish a shopping empire from within the Istora Walls. Under the name of BliBli.com, translated as BuyBuy .....

    You could buy quite a lot of stuff in here ..... and online too.

    blibli1.jpg
    This is the BliBli Shopping Mall ....

    Guys, do you know what they are doing on the 5th picture ?
    It seems they are doing plank, but i was just wondering it seems that their feet are moving, could it be another version of plank ?
