    Hallo Everyone,

    I’ve been a fan of BC for a while now..reading the posts on the different tournaments, techniques, strategies, etc.. Finally registered in BC today!

    A bit about myself - I’m a Malaysian living in NZ.. been here for a while now – since 1993. Go MAS for TC in 2010!

    Started playing badminton again in 2007 after a break since 2000 (university and high school days) felt that my fitness was going downhill by sitting in an office looking at a computer screen all day. And now in 2010, am playing at least twice a week – at a badminton club night, at a privately organised game with some friends on a Sat and in the right season of the year in a business house league. Have probably been the fittest I’ve ever been (not that I was much of a sporty person in the past anyway..haha).

    Just wanted to say..G’day! :)

    And that's an awesome racquet you've got there man... When I grow up, I wanna be just like you!!

    Very Farnee Kevin79.. Yes - I do have an awesome racket - thanks to you! Considering that you are older than me - I don't know how you can be like me when you grow up! :)

    Thanks for the warm welcome Fidget! Yes you are right born in 1980. My nick is just a play on my surname..:) Although I do smash like a typhoon..haha..jokes! :p

    Like a typhoon... you can see it from miles off and never know where it's going eh?

    ;)

    Did you know that the word typhoon comes from Hakka or Cantonese for "big wind"?

    I was actually thinking about the speed and power of a typhoon vs not knowing where the smash is going..haha. Although sometimes it can be like that for me..;)
