    Hahaha I'm also surprised that I'm already in Singapore. I'm studying at SMU.. BadMania is right... hahaa right in downtown. I've decided that I'll come everyday if time permits, that is. Really looking forward to see you there, too, Loh!

    Congratulations Serla (mind telling me what this means and why Yannie addresses you by this name) and welcome! You must be very special as the SMU is quite selective and this uni is certainly making a name for itself despite its short history. The SMU badminton captain is Gerald Ho, an ex-national player and Singapore's former no.3. You must have impressed at the interview(s)! ;) And may I know how come BadMania knows where you're going? :rolleyes:

    So the venue has changed to Toa Payoh Sports Hall. I wonder whether this is the same hall that I went to watch table tennis? I'm sure quite a number of BFers will attend. Do PM me your handphone no. when you're ready. :)

    Hahah.. Serla is my name.. weird name? Hahaha. Wow.. that's cool if the captain is Gerald Ho. BadMania and I have been in touch for quite some time, and he is the friend of a lecturer at SMU.. Hahaha. The prof who interviewed me was very nice, so some credit goes to him? Hahahaha. I'm happy to get into the uni as well.

    Anyway, I don't even know where the Sports Hall is, but what I know that it's VERY near my house. Hehehe.

    :D
    Wah, you all think this tournament is equivalent to the WC or what?

    Nevertheless, I think Serla will be armed to the teeth (Yannie is going to specialize in this soon, orthodontics, right?). If any talented Thai second team is coming, I'm sure Georgina will be there with her latest image equipment as well. As she is now the Da Jia (Big Sis :D ), I think she's now enjoying the activities put up by the NUS fresh undergrads during the "Rag & Flag" celebrations before the start of the new term.

    Don't know who Wei Feng is (not Georgina?) and have not really met erin.

    But I think you can rely on Serla! :)

    Hi Loh!!!

    It's almost as exciting as WC, hahaha! You can probably ask Serla why, when you meet her! :p
    Btw, nope... I ended up choosing economics - as it's a wonderful subject... :D
    About Wei Feng... you can probably check the "Malaysian Junior" thread for Chong Wei Feng... He is not Georgina... ;)
    Erin is Erin Hakkinen from this forum... Great friend of Yannie and Serla.

    Toa Payoh Sports Hall

    I've never played at the TPSH although Chew5555 and his kakis are regulars there. So yesterday, I decided to take a trip to TP after work to get acquainted. It is quite far from my office at Raffles Place, unlike the Singapore Badminton Hall which is much closer and this enables me to make more frequent trips there.

    TPSH is circular in design, not very big nor tall and is set in the midst of the sports complex comprising the TP Swimming Complex, Singapore Table Tennis Association training centre, TP Stadium and the Sports Council TP office.

    My visit coincided with the 2006 National Wushu Championships and it was actually the first time that I had a chance to witness such a competition. The Hall is big enough for 4 badminton courts with room to spare. The ceiling looks a little low and the lights don't seem to be very friendly as they are relatively dim (bad for the camera) and directly overhead. But the seats up in the gallery, though they are more like the less comfortable benches without backs, are quite well spaced out and exudes a breath of warmth when occupied. Movement around the gallery is free and easy.

    The most welcomed addition is the airconditioning which contrasted glaringly with the heat and discomfort that a visitor has to bear for long periods at the SB Hall.

    Here are some pics. Balance seems to be very important to the wushu exponent. The non-weapon hand is used not only to add beauty to the form and stance but also used to stabilise the body, something that badminton can learn from.
