    Those were the days when the whole family would eat dinner early and then pack in front of the telly cheering each other's teams: my family were all rooting for Malaysia whenever the team plays, while my father, mother and I cheered for China, whereas my eldest brother, Indonesia.

    My second brother couldn't care less unless it's his own country playing.

    MY GOD! So old-fashioned and out-moded, LOL :D Especially players hair, i think during their time, guys dont prefer very short hair, very funny. NO pictures on female players...... probably cause more laughter, because during 80's the hairstyle is BULKY, MASSIVE & LARGE SIZE for its weight, no rebonding yet !! :eek:

    1992, i was 15. my grandfather told me to go to sleep. but i turn the volume down a bit and kept watching. the times when i wanted to scream out loud but i couldn't because my grandfather would hear me and turn the tv off. after we won and the tv showed our celebrations, i spend the night wide eyed, not believing it. feels like i won something. i was so excited, i think i did not sleep that night. i dont remember if the government declared holiday the next day, but even if i did not go to school, i remember meeting friends and discussing animatedly about malaysia's success. and how we are so in love now with badminton players. hahahaha. :D those were the days. i hope we will have them again before i turn 50. *smiling and reminiscing*.....:)

    I was very young when we won the TC under controversial circumstances in '67 (Tan Yee Khan's squad). My parents remembered that during the 8th match with MAS leading 4-3, Tan Yee Khan and Ng Boon Bee totally outplayed INA pair in 1st game 15-2. Then in the 2nd, Senayan crowd trouble affected them and they lost the 2nd 13-18. After that, the game was stopped by the Tournament Referee .....

    But in 1992, I was at THE STADIUM, (with our "now official" Cheerleader). And the atmosphere was so great, I do not expect the coming World Championships to top it. Flag and banner "psychological wars" were being fought against the not-insignificant other team's supporters. All in good and friendly spirit.

    We had some agony at 1st, looking at how difficult it was for Rashid to beat Ardy, 15-11, 10-15, 15-4 win (and that after leading 9-0 in 2nd game, his game suddenly collapsed). He was so tired after that, could hardly walk out of court.

    Then came Razif/Jalani, but Jalani didn't play well, ended up with Razif covering (in vain as it seems). They lost 9-15, 15-9, 2-15 and Eddy Hartono/Rudy Gunawan danced on court ......

    Old warhorse (yeah, old at 29) Foo Kok Keong came to battle Susi's sweetheart. Very surprising match, Alan Budi Kusuma was slain easily 15-6, 15-12. And for this edition, PBSI made Alan the scapegoat for the loss, similar to Joko Suprianto (who also lost to Foo) in the previous TC Edition.

    Finally, future sworn enemies Cheah Soon Kit/Soo Beng Kiang played future INA legends Ricky/Rexy. In a scrappy battle of nervous youngsters, the MAS pair prevailed 15-12, 10-15, 15-8. If you want to know how nervous, well, we could see Soo Beng Kiang and Ricky Subagja's trembling arms during service .....

    The last (boring) match was played for formality, Joko beat Kwan Yoke Meng and we wished there was a walkover. After the ceremonies and all, it was 2 am (or was it later) and time to start the long walk home ......
