    Thanks for the awesome photos Cheung! :D

    Some of us do show more emotion, though I tend to take things a little too far sometimes. I think Macau would be interesting, as I came close to a yellow card a few times :p


    I know this is a repost, but here is some Canadian footage from Macau! I will try hard to finish blogs with pictures for Hong Kong, China, and Macau as soon as I can! Working out of Korea at the moment, getting ready for the 2011 Korea Grand Prix Gold! Then, off to the 2011 Canadian International... phew... lots of tournaments :crying:

    That is a heavy travel schedule. But don't cry, you're living the dream! :) :cool:

    Glad to see that you are coming to Eastern Canada for the international event in December. Moncton is a long way from Korea, but a lot of juniors on this side of the country will benefit from an opportunity to see such high-level badminton. Thanks for your efforts! :)

    At the Korea Open GPG, Toby/Grace are now the top-seeded XD pair left standing!

    You guys have a very good chance of taking the title! Wishing you all the best, and more strength.

    Haha we WERE the top seeded team :rolleyes:

    Need MUCH more strength, probably more mental than physical... ugh... I'll try to get the match up when I can... see how strong the stadium's wi-fi is ;)

    Moncton, NB.
    December 13 through 17.

    XD top seeds are the established firm of Grace and Toby.
    We should make it a point to say Grace before Toby, should we not? :D:D:D

    Evidently, all the trans-continental gallivanting is beginning to take its toll on our Toby, as he has chosen not to participate in the MS draw here. :D

    In the WS, Michelle Li is the top seed, and looking good for another title.

    Oh no. MS without Toby? Well, then there's no sense following it! :D
    Baaaaaad pun, cobalt :D:D

    Perhaps, but whether Grace is prayer, favor, or elegance, you first need it to exist, so you first need (to be)/(Toby). ;)


    Indeed it has, but actually, it would cost me $50 more to enter and $50 would buy me a lot of fresh Atlantic lobster here :p


    Another title of course, but we can have some fun along the way, can't we? :D

    Yeah, it's been a little discouraging but oh well... I guess our last shot will be at the German/All England combo as it is the last of the bigger tournaments for the qualifying period (well, I didn't plan on playing India), so we'll be training hard toward that one! They should be the next International tournaments for me, well, because Canada doesn't seem to want to send me to Thomas Cup Prelims, oh well :p
