Kevin has indeed matured into a young adult now. Let's see how he and Arya fare in the AJC. Given that this is their first tourney after like 3 years of separation, I am a bit skeptical of their chance.
Ruselli Hartawan is cute....her nickname (Mei Mei) is also cute :P She looks a bit more feminine now as I have always thought she's a bit tomboyish (from her photos in FB). I believe Della Augustia Surya is also of Chinese descent.
I am wondering why Sigit Budiarto is not in the coaching team...instead, Chafidz Yusuf and Dimas are there. If I am not wrong, these 2 were coaching the independent players like Kido/Hendra, Alvent/AG, Vita/Nadya, etc in the past few years.
