I first joined BC way back in 2002 approximately and was very thankful to Kwun for creating this site, effectively building a virtual and global badminton village where there are no borders on nationalities, cultures, race, age and gender. Everyone unified in sharing their passion and love for the game and all its glorious intricacies and nuances. Like many of you here, I laughed, cried, exclaimed and sometimes held spellbound by all the articles posted here. Before live streaming and scoring, we were relying on one another to update us with the scores at tournaments, clicking on the refresh button like there's tomorrow to get the latest scores! I was one of they many lucky ones not only getting to share my passion for the game with you here online but I got to even meet a few of you, some becoming life long friends! Highlight of one such meeting led to an opportunity to write reports for the IBF website on the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games badminton event. I can now add a further highlight...meeting the man himself that made it all possible for us to be part of this global badminton community! It is humbling to meet Kwun and even more the humbling experience to get to play a few games with him and get to know him and his lovely wife Janet better! You'll all laugh at me for saying this but finally meeting Kwun is like getting to meet one of the badminton superstars. Truly an honour. As if that's not a treat in itself, the man himself proves to be a great ambassador not only for the sport but for how we should carry ourselves. Respectful of oneself and others, always sincere and without any air of pride or pretence! Kwun, I won't embarrass you by listing all your wonderful qualities. Would just like to express my deepest gratitude and appreciation not only for being such a great host and friend during my visit of your home town, but for all your tireless efforts in creating and sustaining our global badminton community through BC! Keep up the good job! I would commission a shrine for you but I know that would make you uncomfortable. How about a monument instead? Thanks again foreverything, especially the honour of being able to call you a good friend! You know you, Janet and the kids will always have a place to stay and a free tour guide in NZ/Aus.
