I only wish I could play like this every time as I normally hit a century (good for cricket, but very bad for golf as you know) most times.

    Btw, do you have spare clubs as I don't think I want to drive up to KL.

    Which golf course did u play at in S'pore.. i don't have a spare clubs. Sold already not long ago. Well i have my own records for century as well in golf. I think we are off topic here.. should start a new thread.

    I think we're not totally off topic, since this is an 'Introduction', like 'getting to know you' better.

    Since I'm not golf crazy nowadays, I normally play at Warren (18-holes par 71), which by the way, has three badminton courts. The last time, during last year's S'pore Open, 3 BFers (from Denmark, M'sia and S'pore) joined me for a badminton game. I hardly play there now as I have joined another group on Sunday afternoons at a location nearer my home.

    I see , so how often do you play golf now compare to your badminton? Are you still attending Photography classes?

    I try to play golf at least once a week, preferably either on Sat mornings or 9 holes in the evenings, pulling a trolley.

    My photography class is still ongoing, probably about 5 more to go. This Sat evening we will be attempting night shoots at the Merlion Park, located at the Esplanade near my office.

    I play badminton at least once a week on Sundays at the NUS (National University of S'pore) S&R courts and try to play on Tuesdays as well, after office, with my colleages. This evening I'll be joining them at the SBA aircon courts. I play only doubles and can't play too many games, 6 will be more than enough!

    What about yourself, ants? Your likes, dislikes, hobbies, work, etc??? The pix you posted the other time in the shopping mall did give an idea of your badminton skills. You must be playing quite regularly but I think you also have to travel quite a bit on business.

    Please "introduce" yourself also and show us some of your other pix to enable us to know you better.

    You can read my introduction post in the Introduction section. beside those things.. i like to take pictures as well , some pll say i have an eye of a pro-photographer. But i did not take up any lessons on photography. Its more of trial and error for me. I don't even use a pro-camera. Well one future investment for me is getting a Canon digital Rebel. I'm currently using a simple digital Ixus 4.

    I used to play golf.. but now stopped already due to time constrain coz i travel alot as well. Miss driving those long balls and playing the short game.

    Regarding badminton skills.. i'm just a casual player.. not like what you see in the pics.. that is for show only. Pll say "Ada Gaya Tak Ada Jaya"

    Wow Dave, I didn't know your Malay is so good! You must have some sort of Malaysian connection, just like WWC having a Bruneian one.

    I still think ants must be a skilful player. I think he is just modest!

    Totally agree, Loh. Playing exhibition in the middle of the mall (did you see the pic?), he must be good!

    If you pepper you sentences with "-lah", you'd easily pass Malay proficiency. Lahhh ... or lor.
