    Oops sorry, unable to post the pictures here somehow.. pls check out this url, should be fine... ^_^

    http://chiploo.blogspot.com

    Yupz, and I just checked the IBF ranking and Bao has fallen to no 13!! Oh I really really hope he will win Singapore Open and get back into top 5!! Bao, jia you!! Btw, does anyone know what happened to the thread for Singapore Open/China Open?? Couldnt find it... Anyway, I realized that from 11 Nov onwards, SCV Channel 22 is braodcasting the final matches for German Open, and for MS finals, the first broadcast is on Deepavali. So those who like Lin Dan or XXZ, rem to tune in!! and also, SCV is exclusively covering a live broadcast for China Open on 14th Nov, the final day itself at 1pm, Channel 22. Everyone, rem not to miss it!! :p

    Haha, I think the one where he is in China Olypmic jacket is very nice!! If anyone knows how to post it here, pls do so.. Cos I just couldnt paste it here.. anyway, dun worry, I tink they will repeat the broadcast for China Open during the whole week of Singapore Open, and most prob Singapore Open after the actual week itself. So most prob u can catch the Singapore Open matches.. But they also quite inefficient one.. was thinking that SCV could have broadcast the Singapore Open live since it's held locally... :(

    Bao's Girlfriend!?

    The Chines swim star is supposed to be Bao Chunlai's girlfriend, although Bao himself denied it.

    Here is a picture of hers. By the way she won an Olympic gold medal in Athens.

    Yupz, the necklace on her neck is almost good proof that they are together.. By the way, if u understand Chinese, perhaps u can visit this link, http://bbs.chinabadminton.com/ball/Announce/Announce.asp?BoardID=4001&ID=381535

    cos apparently some Bao fan who doesnt like the idea of them being together has posted some interesting comments and photos.. :p But anyway, I think Luo Xuejuan (Bao's gf) is really good to have clinched a gold Olympic medal cos swimming is not really one of China's forte.

    I remembered reading two articles whereby Bao confirmed his relationship with LXJ. He denied it initially after the Olympics, but in ard October, he sort of confirmed the relationship already... One of the articles I read was that the reporter asked him if he will take good care of LXJ and he replied: "Yes, of course!" and had a smile on his face or sth.. :eek: Moreover, I think this is already an open secret in the China badminton team.. But anyway, it doesnt really matter who he is with, let's just hope that he can pull up his socks and do well in all the tourneys!! :p
