    Zhao Jianhua went over to Singapore to sell chicken rice once, now back in China don't know doing what; while Yang 'YY' Yang (Yonex?) is probably to-and-fro around SEA and China, especially to Malaysia, taking care of his badminton equipment business of the same name. The plant is somewhere in Batu Pahat, if I've not mistaken.

    That was news some one year ago, not sure about now.

    No Yang Yang is not yonex. But before yonex was yonex, it was called YY (people still call it YY in some places) and Yang Yangs' rackets have a symbol of YY. (see the connection?)

    Yang Yang have his own brand which is "YangYang" or YY. not Yonex. Yeah he does goes to Msia regularly.

    Rasif , Jalani Sidek and Foo Kok Keong is currently doing car distribution under Perodua if i'm not mistaken. Rashid is assistant coach of Bam. Rahman is handling Nusa Mahsuri.

    Susi Susanti and Alan Budi Kusuma own thier own brand of Badminton products. And also actively travelling around doing badminton clinics.

    Yonex was Yoneyama, (the surname of the Japanese guy who founded it??) hence YY.

    I happened to pass by the area today and the chicken rice shop has been taken over by a new roti prata (Indian food) shop. :rolleyes:
