    What are the rules for taking pictures? Can I use non flash camera in the arena?

    If I am not the wrong Savills real estate(UK) surveyed world's top cities and undoubtedly London was rated as the most expensive city, even ahead of NYC and HKG

    To those who are going to the All England, all I can say is that, you are definitely in for a treat. Moreover, its the Olympic qualification period. Enjoy the All England! :)

    I'm really looking forward to an action-packed week of Badminton!!
    First time there's no matchday for me on Finals weekend, so finally visting a major ähm well the major Badminton event :D
    Once I had the chance to visit the WC in London11, but the atmosphere in the NIA or now Barclaycard-Arena should be quite a bit better and so special from what I have seen and heard the last years watching the vids and streams.
    Its even greater this year bc of the OG, surely this will be a hint for the upcoming months. No one will hold back here. And the last time watching the likes of LD, LCW and propably a few others.

    We will be welcomed by rain on tuesday it seems but afterwards it should get better and "warmer". Anyway most time will be spent in the hall so who cares about the british weather (coming from a cold, rainy, windy Germany last couple of weeks) :p

    Anything one should do / visit in Birmingham besides enjoying the matches?!

    No doubt my reaction has slowed rather quickly due to the relentless onslaught of endless time! No one can escape I suppose. It's a matter of time! But I still plod on, enjoying the little I have remaining. :D

    For Food definitively the restaurant Tin Tin, closeby. We met a couple of players there over the past years, Kenichi Tago for instance in the last three years. And the whole Korean Team!

    I might give Tin Tin's a go tomorrow :) It's that or Shogun Teppenyaki

    I'm a big fan of Le Monde and if you like your fish I do recommend a visit. I'll be in there Saturday night.

    Newal is always popular in Birmingham. Birmingham has a very large Indian, Bangladeshi, Pakistan population. It was as loud as a home venue for her last season.
