    Default What are your other interests in life?

    Clearly we all have one thing in common - Badminton, but what other interests/hobbies do you have? Please share photos of your other hobbies/likes outside badminton!

    For me, I am a big fan of cars, motorsport and particularly F1. I like working on my own car and tickering with things.... might post a few photos later. I used to have a honda civic type-r (hence my username) but now drive a 135i.

    I also enjoy photography but haven't really touched my DSLRs since my son was born a couple of years ago. Must get back into it!

    I used to be play a lot of table tennis and tennis. I got quite good at table tennis at one point beating county players in my late teens but badminton was always my favorite sport.

    Driving.

    Have a 335i with sports package and manual transmission. Also GT5 PS3 game setup with Logitech force feedback steering wheel.

    I can imagine how much more fun your 135i would be.

    I used to bowl, 10 pin, 200 average. Diving, 3 minutes under water. Running, 800 meters under 2 minutes. Table tennis, only lose to well train players. Swimming, can do all styles including butterfly. Snooker, can give anybody a match unless you spend the awake time in the pool hall. Football, not the American one, the faster right wing you have ever seen. Golf, can out drive people twice of my size. But all those hobbies had vanished and liked smoke in the air because of my wife started playing 10 years ago. I have to drive her to badminton courts whenever she needs. Now badminton is now my only hobby.

    aside from family....

    i bike. that's probably my biggest activity nowadays aside from badminton. i can do both road or mountain. there are times when i average 120-130 miles per week. that has slowed down a little now due to the cold weather. despite so, i still go out for 30-50miles during the weekend.

    i run. running is a new thing for me. as i am looking for something more challenging than biking. and challenging it is. i have never felt more beaten up than going out for a 10k run. running is much harder than biking.

    i am also a gearhead. i like to tinker with things and get my hands all oily. i build all my bikes and i also do the maintanance on my cars.

    Kwun, if you want challenge or not mind getting beaten up or the feeling of hopelessness, try hit a God damn little white ball. It only sits on the ground not moving and inviting you hitting it.

    Golf, arguably, the most frustrating sport if not the most difficult of all.

    Dead right, so I don't play it! Cars for me too, tinkering and driving. VW Passat estate for work, Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 & MB SLK for play! The VW is the work horse and ferries all the family to matches and club nights, home & away, unless its just me and my Mrs, then we use the SLK with the roof down! Even in winter, on a night with scarf & hat on! Don't have much time for anything else now with stringing too.
