    Here i go,

    I am Ants

    I'm into Education and Health Industry. I'm not a doctor. :)

    Badminton Skills : Well how can an ant hold a racket ?

    I used to be a sport person like most of you guys. Used to be a varsity tennis , basketball and handball player. Well that was ages ago! Now i'm into badminton and i know this will be my sport until the end of my life.

    History

    I got to know badminton when i was a 5 year old. My grandma bought me 2 wooden badminton rackets. I only play with her whenever she is in town. But it wasn't in a badminton court. It was in my own living room! But i stopped playing when my grandma pass away. As i grow up , i begin to pick up other sports , those that i mentioned above. I played soccer as well before.
    Growing up in Malaysia watching our National teams plays and train ( my house is few minutes away from where the Msian Teams trains then ) didn't ignite the spark for badminton in me. I played badminton once in a blue moon when i was in high school but I was deeply into basketball because of Micheal Jordan's influence!

    After few years , everyone from my backyard basketball , one by one slowly fadeaway from Basketball due to work etc. Even i was the victim of work due the schedules and also i was in a stage where i set up my own business. So There is no sports for me for a time being.

    I pick up badminton racket when my friends invited me to join them for few games. After few sessions of encouragement and games from my friends , i told myself , hey i can actually play badminton and this sport is good for me. I was hooked then! Even now , whenever i travel abroad , sometimes i would make schedules to play some pick-up games. Hopefully i can also play with the BC/BF guys if i happens to be in their own respective country. I love this GAME! And truly i give thanks to Kwun and the Moderators for BC.com. I learn things about badminton and know the people here because of the forum.

    Why Ants as my nick ?

    Me and my bunch of friends was among the few people who started the IRC Craze in Malaysia many years ago. During that time there are only less than 5 Cybercafes in town. I use Ants as my nick because of ANThony my english name. I was there before AntZ the cartoon came out. Eversince sometimes people know me as Ants and they don't even know my name. Even now in badminton courts people call me Ants. So Ants is part of me now.

    Btw i own many collections of Air Jordans Basketball Shoes , but i stopped collecting already. :)
