    Prize money for Cheah Soon Kit/Ong Beng Teong(MAS) from KLRC?

    .
    Of course there will be prize money for Cheah Soon Kit/Ong Beng Teong(MAS), if they were to win the MD Finals.

    But they might give it back to KLRC. :D:D:D

    badMania ... INA players should have no problem winning matches on Day 2.

    We should expect all INA players to move on to Day 3, namely;
    Tommy Sugiarto,
    Melicia Kurniawan,
    Wifqi Windarto/Afiat Yuris Wirawan, and
    Lingga/Fernando Kurniawan

    Oh dear. Alistair Casey stole one of my shuttles. I was taking a break after a set, then he walked onto my court and picked up my AS40 shuttle and threw it into his.. multitude of training shuttles. D:

    Quite alot of the participants in the KLRC NZ Open are either from my school or the girl-school which is very near it. These players include: Ethan Haggo, Jessica Jonggowisastro, Anona Pak, Aviva Pak, Melissa Yin & Henry Tam. I have a long way to go until I can make it into the premier team.... :(

    Some of them asked me at what round the prize-money will start to be given.. quarter finals ? semi's ? .. I'm a volunteer at this tournament but I don't know yet.

    No surprises today as the Djarum MD pairs all advance. But, Edo/Lingga's performance is not that convincing today :cool: They will have an interesting match against John Gordon/Daniel Shirley (Dan won the bronze-medal with Sara Runesten-Petersen in XD of WC in 2005) tomorrow.

    Womens Singles:
    (1) Renuga.Veeran(AUS) vs Melissa.Yin(NZL)
    -Veeran did a head-shot at Melissa Yin.. ouch.

    (2) Melicia Kurniawan(INA) vs Clare Chapple(NZL)
    -Clare Chapple has suprisingly alot of power in her shots, considering her.. weight which is probably below 40kgs.

    (3) Zhou Mi (HKG) vs Anna Rankin (NZL)
    -Anna Rankin gave her best shot against the former bronze-medallist, whilst Zhou Mi was.. smiling as she gave away points.

    Mens Singles:
    (1) Jeremy Liu(NZL) vs Alister Casey[7](SCO)
    -Jeremy Liu was a piece of cake for Alistair, the difference in power in their shots were clearly visible..

    (2) Lee Tseung Seng (MAS) vs James Eunson (NZL)
    -James Eunson is still a junior player. The crowd cheered for him as he.. blasted his best shots at the Malaysian second seed.

    Womens Doubles:
    (1) Renuga Veeran/Kate Wilson-Smith(AUS) vs Emma Chapple/Jessica Jonggowisastro(NZL)

    (2) Aviva Pak/Anona Pak (NZL) vs Mary O'Connor/
    The Pak sisters had a bad start, consequtively giving away points by unforced-errors.
    They won the second set 24-22, and sadly lost the third set, upsetting the crowd that cheered for them.

    Mens Doubles:
    (1) Craig Cooper/John Moody(NZL) vs John Gordon/Daniel Shirley(NZL)
    (2) Oliver Leydon-Davis/Joe Wu(NZL) vs Cheah Soon Kit/Ong Beng Teong(MAS)
    -The young, athletic Kiwis.. suprisingly lost their first set to the hard-out uncles from Malaysia.. The Malaysian pair didn't have any tricks behind their sleeves, but they were the masters of the basics.

    Mixed Doubles:
    (1) Chen Hung Ling/Chou Chia Chi[1](TPE) vs Daniel Shirley/Renee Flavell(NZL)
    -Chen H L looks rather much like an ordanary bright Asian uni student.. but his smashes were crazy.. and Daniel Shirley, the wormer World Championships bronze medallist just.. smashed like he's got steroids ( apparently it's all skills )..

    2008 New Zealand GP (Day 2): Cheah Soon Kit/Ong Beng Teong(MAS) playing Mens Doubles

    .
    :D:D:D I haven't watched that match ... but I would just guess that Cheah Soon Kit/Ong Beng Teong(MAS) were only there to have a good time, and to make their match as interesting as it could get.

    Winning by 23-21, 22-20 could not be anything but fun. :D:D:D

    Watching those.. 'uncles' jump-smashing was.. very.. entertaining. It would've been better if they dived.. but they were too good at the basics, they didn't need to dive at all :D:D:D

    They're definetely uncles in baddy world, since they've already retired from competitive playing :D:p.
    Cheah Soon Kit = born 09 January 1968 = 40 this year. There isnt any profile of Ong Beng Teong in wikipedia, but he should be around the same age as CSK ;)
