    Wow, that's far by Spore standard. Guess we just have to donate generously to two taxi drivers then. Question is : Is it safe to take a cab back at 10pm? Have heard enough stories about cabs detour and we wouldn't have a clue whether it's headed to the natural jungle or the concrete one.

    Thanks for clarifying it's stadium Juara at Mt Kiara. In that case , it's 5-10 minutes away from The Curve, right?

    Interview with Misbun during the donation drive :

    The Star Online > Sports
    Sunday November 9, 2008
    Life goes on for Misbun despite trials and tribulations

    By RAJES PAUL
    KUALA LUMPUR: National singles coach Datuk Misbun Sidek has gone through a harrowing time in the last six months. But never once did he let it get him down.


    He was always calm and composed — even when there had been sleepless nights and tearful moments as he tried to juggle between caring for his sick wife, Datin Latifah Sidek, and devoting time to groom his players into world beaters.


    The tears flowed freely on Friday when he spoke about his wife, who is suffering from kidney failures, during a donation drive at Stadium Juara in Bukit Kiara.


    “My wife had complained of severe headache and it was only after several visits to the hospital that it was confirmed that she had kidney problems,” he said.
    [​IMG] Trying times: Misbun Sidek visiting his wife Latifah who is undergoing dialysis treatment for her kidney problems in August.


    “Now, I take her for dialysis treatments. It’s hard to see my wife go through such pain but I have had to be strong for her.
    “She has been understanding too. She knows that my job as a coach is important to me. There have been sleepless nights but I make sure that the very next morning, I show up early and am strong in front of my players. It’s difficult but I have to handle it.”


    Misbun also thanked his family, players, supporters and the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) for their support and understanding during this tough period in his life.


    “My father (the late Datuk Sidek Kamar) had slapped and scolded me when I did not want to pursue my badminton career when I was younger. You see, I preferred football then,” recalled Misbun.


    “But he wanted me to stick with badminton, which he said would be a blessing to my family. I thought he was too crazy about the sport.


    “Now, after looking at all the support I have received from everyone, I understand what he really meant. I really appreciate it.”


    Misbun has suffered personal tragedy before. Just before the 1996 Atlanta Games, while he was guiding younger brother Rashid, his daughter died.


    Having survived that tragedy, he knows he will have to be strong to deal with his wife’s ailment.


    Misbun is clearly made of sterner stuff.


    And that is one trait he hopes his group of players, including world No. 1 men’s singles shuttler Lee Chong Wei, will pick up.


    “I would like to turn my players from nobody to somebody. It is a personal challenge for me. And my hope is that my players will not give up easily,” said Misbun.


    Chong Wei has been going through a tough time trying to stabilise his game after winning a silver medal at the Beijing Olympics in August. He has not been able to justify his status as the world’s No.1 player.


    “Chong Wei must accept that this is a temporary setback. I will do my best to improve his performances so that he will be able to achieve his ambition to be the best player in the world,” said Misbun.


    “I am willing to guide Chong Wei to go one step better at the next Olympic Games (2012 in London). He cannot give up.”


    Misbun is currently getting his players ready for three back-to-back tournaments — Johor Open (Nov 11-14 ), China Open (Nov 18-23) and Hong Kong Open (Nov 25-30).
