    Hi ctjcad

    - Took a few Tube rides...they eerily remind me of 4 yrs ago in Beijing. Except these Tube rides in London are more complicated and the people riding them are mostly caucasians (Brits)..
    - Had a nice dinner w/BoogieeigooB & Fengwei in London's main chinatown area..
    - The streets were alive tonight, especially around Piccaddily Circus & Leicester Square areas..
    - Had a street-performance guy playing and blowing music out of that street cone!!!
    - The photos of the buildings is the area where Fengwei & i are staying..

    the one in the middle is BoogieeigooB (Richard)..

    Here are a few more photos to share...We went to a badminton store (in north London) and apparently that's all the collection they have in the store (and yes, no feather birdies)..

    Oh, I went to kindergarten in London, a long long time ago .......

    Lived there until the mid-70s, when Rudy Hartono was still the master at the old Wembley Arena.

    Then as an adult, bought me a house in London, which my already-migrated cousins are pestering me to sell to them (at subsidised price, no doubt). Thank you very much, I would prefer to be my cousins' landlord. Which is part of the reason for my yearly ritual to merry old London.

    Looks really modernised. They used to have some badminton courts near the station. Probably disappeared now. As part of the experience of English culture, may I enquire which pub you are heading off to, and then the next one and then the next one....?

    U are just like Uncle Loh ....... wakakakaka. He's practically "retired" from travelling since after the 2008 Olympics bar the occasional Malaysian Super Series. But when he does travel, there are tons of pics, even those unrelated to badminton.

    Hello Indeed I believe that floor saved my back actually, the concrete ones at the Uni were terrible.

    I realised I haven't popped in here since the last Olympics, seems to be a 4 year thing
