    I did not do it..my coach sort it out for me as he knows some yonex agent in nz (most important thing tht it's FOC :p) and i wouldnt spend money here in nz to buy any badminton things..so i also wouldnt buy a YY shirt which costs a lot of $$$ than in m'sia..and the print job which also costs quite a lot (not sure how much) and everything here is damn expensive for me.. :)

    im not so sure man..i got a yonex shirt from malaysia for like rm40 ..? and the other 1 was from a stock cleareance sale which was only rm25 :p here in nz the cheapest yonex shirts which are the old and not really nice ones cost at east $45nzd (rm135) and the nice and new ones would cost from $55nzd to $65nzd (rm175-rm205)..u can get the same thing here in malaysia with a much more lower praice..e. my shb 98 rm350 in m'sia and in nz it cost rm600.. hohoho..see the difference?

    Im not sure wheter klrc offers training or not..I need to ask either Sairul or Ismail about it..Ismail can help me out abt it. erm..not most of them are nz players.. they also have Andrew Smith and Nicholase Kidd from England.. Aji Basoki Sindoro who plays for aussie. AS far as i know there are 2 Nz players in klrc (John Moody and Rachel Hindley) The rest are malaysian. Andrew Smith trains in klrc.

    yea..those non malaysian players in KLRC are still playing for their own country..they only train in KLRC... i never really tried to put on shb-99ltd before.i just tried it on but not on court ..according to the shop owner here in nz, if u have fatty sole, it's better for u to go for shb99 coz the base of the shoes is thicker..if u dont then go for shb98..

    and yes.. shb 98 is very light..i have another pair of mizuno wave angle R1...which is lighter than shb98..but it's not as comfortable as shb98 coz it doesnt hav the power cushion thingy in it

    I did thought about to rain in Nusa..but the thing is i don knw any1 there..so im afraid i couldnt socialise with them as im kinda quiet person
