    Dear Badrad,

    I'm looking for badminton training camps in China and saw your post about Guangdong badmintoin training centre(http://www.badmintonforum.com/forums/read.php?f=2&i=21659&t=21659). I was wondering if you happen to have their contact#, email, or more information regarding their program.

    my friend quan wei-zhing runs the GD training center, she is the badminton director for southern china. i have to look around for the brochures she gave me on the training camp. if i find it, i'll bring it to next week's practice - will you be attending? btw - our training sessions will continue on a drop-in basis. so just keep coming whenever you can.

    sure, i'll post the info when i find it. it's probably slipped into a book or binder somewhere, but just trying to remember is the task at hand.

    i can't remember how much the standard fee was, but i don't recall it being on the brochure. but the number $75usd per day comes to mind during a conversation.

    yeah, i think the campus had residence rooms there as well, but are spartan. don't expect room service.

    now, i seem to remember getting joked around by Guan Wei-Zhing that she was going to feed my daughter congee only each day.... nah, she's not that mean, actually she is really cute, for an older lady (but then, i'm an older man).

    hey, i don't mind having some weight loss at the same time too. I would definitely gain agility if i lose 10% of my current weight. I'm still trying to lose the 3 lb that i've gained over the last christmas break.

    hmm, maybe a bunch of us here should get together and negotiate a group rate, plus another discount for having congee and tofu instead of fried rice and BBQ duck.

    Is this place in Beijing? If it is, I may be interested in dropping by a day or so. Oh I seriously do not know how I am going to last in China, I hate chinese food. I hope they have MacDonalds. :)

    OT chinese food

    don, there are northern and southern style of chinese foods, do you dislike both version in general? Also, if you have not accompanied by someone who know which chinese restaurant and what to order, i can see why your experience of chinese food may not so... pleasant. If you able to attend a chinese banquets, i think your opinion might be corrected. Could it be your view of chinese foods consist of dishes like chop suey, egg foo young, sweet and sour pork or ribs??

    Re: OT chinese food

    don, you certainly opened a can of worms with that one about not liking chinese food. oh, yeah did i mention some of the remote chinese provinces where a can of worms really is a meal in itself... sauteed with sesame of course.... hahahahahahah

    Actually, you should ask whether the washroom is up to par with Western Standards. Believe me the toilets and bathrooms in China (except for the 4 and 5 stars hotels) are some what to be desired. I don't mind using sunk-in toilets (you will see a big difference if you compare the sunk-in toilets in Narita International Airport to the regular public WCs in Mainland China) as long as it is clean but . . . those in Mainland China are just . . . uhhmmmmm.
