Such a nice account of your fond memories, many thanks! Hope you are a badminton player and are still playing. You seemed to think you are too old at 20, but don't be embarassed to continue to ask for autographs and taking pics with your favourite players if you are happy with what you're doing.
Hope you're still residing in S'pore and maybe still studying? You probably know that Candra is now married to Ronald Susilo's elder sister. There will be great excitement in Jakarta during the T/U Cup competitions and I wonder whether you will be watching the proceedings? I'm hoping to go there.
Another reason why I stopped taking autographs was because I always seem to miss the best matches that are ongoing at the same time.. I still take pictures with them whenever they were here for the Sgp Open though, but just before I wanted to go home..
Yeah, Iím still studying in Sgp.. I knew about Candraís marriage.. I saw his wife quite often whenever heís here for competitions.. Candra, his wife Caroline, Ronald and Indra always leave together..
Ohhh.. Iím still mugging for my exams.. Iím sad, really sad that I canít go back to Jakarta to watch the T/U Cup.. Iím really hoping that one day, the T/U Cup will be held in Singapore, cos I reckon Iíll be staying in Sgp for quite a few more years..
There was once when the players were here for the Sgp Open (canít remember which year), they stayed at SeaView Hotel in Marine Parade.. Thereís a Cold Storage in front of the hotel.. I live only a 5 mins walking distance away.. I didnít know they stayed there.. I went there to buy some snacks when I saw Hendrawan trying to pick his choice of Pringles! I was Ďstar-struckí! I didnít expect that they would stay in that hotel! Finally, he chose the red original Pringles.. I managed to speak out and called out to him.. I called him Wawan (Hendrawan is known by that name in Indo), so he knew I was Indonesian.. Heís surprised to see an Indonesian too.. We chatted for a while.. And the next morning, I purposely went there to see them and saw quite a few players jogging in the grass field in front of the hotel..

but 2002 i wasn't into badminton yet... though i watch Spore Open 2002 n i saw Xuanze playing... but from where i was sitting i couldn't c his face clearly... i only can c his movement, so i noe he's a great player, but i didn't noe how cute he was
btw, i don think the Koreans stayed in Federal during ABC rite???
cos i only bump into them while waiting for other players outside the stadium... always... but nobody approach them.... all simply stared.... n yes, kim n ra came together n were talking all along
in Federal i only saw Indo, Chinese, Japanese, Thai n VIetnamese i think.... during breakfast one day... there were some chinese players sat beside me... well u noe, how i wish it's Xuanze sitting there if he was there but i donno who r those players... very young, quite good looking

Kim & RaOriginally Posted by twlih
But, I read Kim & Ra's articles and realized reason of sharing the same bottle.
Korean head-coach let them share the same bottle. Both of them are very calm, slient and introversive. Doubles game needs talking with partner. They played in calm without a word and lost the game!! Coach got angry. So, coach ordered that they should share the same bottle and sit in the side place on bus. Kim & Ra obeied coach's order.
Kim interviewed that he didn't know Ra's private life, but they were familiar in recent. I think sharing the same bottle obtained the desired results. In Korea, many people hope they will be lovers to see a super badminton player(Kim & Ra 's children will also play very well. )
They 'surely' are not lovers now. But, who knows in the future?

The Koreans were surrounded by hordes of girls when they came for Sing Open last year. The reason, I believe, has got to do largely with the Korean craze here so everything Korean was in high demand. Adel and I have shared some very interesting experiences, so maybe if you're interested you can check them out here: http://www.badmintonforum.com/vb/showthread.php?t=11347
Quite amusing, but it made Ra Kyung Min, Kim Dong Moon and Lee Kyung Won really happy. And of cos Lee Hyun Il, Shon Seung Mo, Lee Dong Soo and the rest of the guys who looked really satisfied and pleased with the attention they were getting. Haha. Great memories. I wonder who'd come for Sing Open this year given the weird timing at the end of the year. No Ra, no Kim DM, no Lee DS, no Candra...

Wooww... u said u saw Bao Chunlai, Lin dan and XXX EVERYDAY?
Uíre so lucky. I envy you Ö..
But if Iím in your position, I donít think i have the courage to approach them and ask for autograph.
Actually I plan to ask for Bao and lin dan autograph in T/C cup macth. Do they speak/understand English???, Ďcause I canít speak Chinese.

Jofianty, body language is universal. English is definitely good enough, coupled with a polite smile of cos. After all, what more can a fan ask from them? Just a side note, Xia is supposedly very keen in learning English and would jump at any opportunity to speak it. It may just be the same case for the others as well.
