Antics of the Finals Day .......
Yesserree, this is when the gloves come off, and the Indian brigade prepare to do battle for their queen ....... As mentioned by the Indian Cheerleading head for my section (seated directly behind me) - they are shouting for Sai-na, not Chi-na .......
The Indian Contingent came in full force .........
To support Sai-na, not Chi-na - nice net play from Saina ...........
During the match, the Indians were assisted by this Indonesian cheearleader .........
Forcing LXR to leave this shuttle in ......
Which gets her into trouble with Coach Zhong Bo .........
While her opponent is given more encouragement from her coach for turning the match around .......

Synchronized "Swimming" on Court ......
Ever heard of Synchronized Swimming? That was pretty much how the Korean MD pair celebrated upon winning the final point .......
Here's a 22 frame depiction of their pursuit of happiness ...... thus providing more work for the court mopper.
Best victory celebration by far .....

Their synchronization was a little off in the middle of their routine and JJS came off their dismount early. I'm afraid I can only give them a 7.375

You are too generous, madbad. I would have given them a fiver, with LYD never moving a muscle once he lay sprawling on the floor.

In Full Flight ....... aka Flight Attendant Style
But since you said the magic word, it is now time for me to show, err, the Djarum Girls' major competition, courtesy of BliBli online retailer ...... Unique styling indeed - based on flight attendant attire of the 60s.
Nice pose .... while checking her email for orders
Always looking aloof and, err, unapproachable, they looked
Until you start talking to them, and find the girls quite chirpy
Gossipping about their, err, passenggers, no doubt

The Effects of a Premier League Event .......
..... are starting to show at the Djarum Indonesia Open. Mainly on ticket prices.
So much so that the touts this year had no joy because people are not so willing to pay the original ticket price, let alone additional "interests" on top of it. Serves the touts right .... but still, a pity for the masses.
But Djarum worked hard to set so many huge TV screens within the compound. So technically, you can see the event live free of charge for featured matches ..... just don't expect to hear any commentary.
For those die hard fans short on cash, there is always the rolling ATM brought in by BCA.

Djarum van with one of the huge TV screens
This is the media centre. Very strict enforcement of ID cards, that the Korean Team Doctor failed to gain entrance despite Sung Ji Hyun's lady coach argument with the guards.
Was under the weather since Saturday morning - so a cup of hot Mocha was always welcome ......
The crowd on finals day during Simon Santoso's match - within the Arena .....
..... inside the Istora building .......
..... and within the compounds.

The 2012 Djarum Girls .......
...... have yet to appear on this forum, wakakakaka.
Instead, let us indulge in some performances brought in by the band, as well as some very hot dancing queens, doing their dance on a very hot, hot day ......
The band makes its presence felt .......
An energetic performance from hyper hot girls .....
..... but this being a very hot day, they almost collapsed after the gig

..... what of the Djarum Girls?
Well, with huge distance-eating Canon lens, deceptive Djarum Girls picture taking is pretty much child's play. Yup, suffice to say that I could shoot 'em in the back, sideways, together in a group, or just sitting by oneself, without any suspecting eye lid.
Yup, I could shoot 'em eating, putting on makeup, doing their hair, getting their lovely faces painted, sitting sideways with blank expressions, pretty much everything really.
Watch this space for results.
Here's a sample .....
of someone who's clearly not a Djarum girl, wakakakakaka.
Some eye candy from long distance. Needless to say, I bought some souvenir T-Shirts from these girls.

This Really Premier Event ........
........ wasn't in the badminton. Not even in the prize money. But it was in the meticulous organization and planning of the event that is repeated and improved year after year.
Those who have not even tried coming over to Jakarta at least once during the Djarum Indonesia Open would have missed a lot.
Of course, having a squadron of Djarum Girls always helps ......
Here are some poses of the Djarum Girls, viewed from the back:
This lady here takes care of the scoreboard at the Istora Main Entrance to the Building
And this one sits idly by, waiting for the crowd and the matches to start .......

These legendary Djarum Girls do get employed in a variety of multitasks.
Here are pictures of those manning the souvenir booths:
Such nice ..... long hair
Yup, they sell DIO dolls too - at a discount during the last 2 days
These girls managed to force me to part company with some hard earned Rupiahs ......
