    Hi everyone,

    My friend snapped a pic of this guy during WC 2007 in KL.
    She has - still - no idea who it is, so we thought of posting the pic here.
    Hopefully somebody might know.

    he's not playing badminton at all, that's a bowl of noodles in his hands!
    great for keeping the energy levels up though.

    why do we think he's a player anyway? he may just be some spectator, who's obviously hungry.
