    Hi Yudhistira!!

    The great thing being a beginner is that you can get much better quickly, if you just put some effort into learning the technique and footwork!! Have fun :D. there are many tips in the forum on techinque, grip, fotwork etc :-D

    hahhaha...i like LinDan's play..very calm, constant, accurate and powerfull playing...i hear his nickname is 'Super Dan' . Oh i like Hwang Hye youn too..not because of her playing.. but her look :D

    i do not follow them, i only know them when local TV channel broadcasts the match (ex. Thomas-Uber cup, olympic games, etc). unfortunately the local TV broadcasts too few international badminton games..d*mnn it! :D

    so in this forum i've seen subforum 'videos sharing' ...that's great for me hahha..anyway, thx fidget :D

    THE Jogjakarta?

    You mean the place of the famousGadjah Mada University? :confused:
    The place where your hunger can be sated by gudeg?? :)
    Just a hop, jump and skip from
    magnificent Borobudur?!? :eek:

    You should never call it just a small town. Wikipedia makes it sound quite lovely. ;)
    I should like to see it one day.

    You share your name with one of the epic heroes of Hindu mythology... I thought maybe it had rubbed off a little on you! :)

    Don't know much about the Li Ning racquets, myself. :(:confused:;)
    But am sure there are very good racquets available for around $100 from other companies like Apacs, Panda Power, Victor etc...

    Yudhistira, I hope everything is OK with you and your family. You are not too far from Mt. Merapi, and I know there are many people here on BC who would be concerned about the safety and health of the people in that area. My best wishes are with you.
