    see this website - www.badmintonfan.com if you read Chinese. Usually when I buy badminton stuff I have two options: badmintonfan, which is the above, or www.bbesports.com, but bbesports does not have shops in Shanghai. These two don't sell fakes, which you know are more than plenty in China.

    I bought my AT800Of from badmintonfan but I broke it new and bbesports repaired it amazing rite? haha broken rackets can be repaired!

    But always check before you buy and don't be lured by unreasonably low prices.

    hmmm.. one question; how cool can smoking be if you already know the PHYSICAL damages it can cause for a person. i can understand that health (say the increased risk of contracting cancer) may not be a priority for teenagers, but i'm refering to the uglified features (yellow teeth, stinky breath, frequent production of phlegm) a smoker gets.

    ...and a BLACK pair of lungs!

    I had a chance to really see the damage that cigarette smoking can do to the lungs. The air sacs are all blocked up and the colour ranges from grey (less smoking) to tar black (heavy smoking) leaving almost no more room for the oxygen to travel. Imagine if you are a heavy smoker and a badminton player. The chance for collapsing on the court during a hard rally is real.

    I saw this real organs at a "Body Works" (I think) exhibition here last February, where dead human bodies were cut up, some were sliced so thin, and preserved in special plasticine mixture (invented by the German exhibitor) to show the many aspects of our body - the brain, the muscles, the veins and other blood vessels, the various body organs, the bones, the embryo in its various stages of growth and some with deformities, the impact of diseases on the organs, etc, etc.

    It was a harrowing but enriching experience! If only you dared to see the dead body with artificial eyes staring at you in the face!

    Besides health problems, smoking will slowly take away the very thing that makes a man a man, a woman a woman. Now you know why a non-smoker is always preferred over a smoker, by the opposite ***. Drinking in moderation is okay. Excessive drinking, besides giving you health problems, will produce more estrogen in your body and make you look more female-like. Just like smoking, excessive drinking will kill your libido. Add the two together, smoking and excessive drinking, you have the sum of the two problems times ten.

    and whoops! i forgot my manners: hi 2love2live! it's nice having you here.

    You mean to say you didn't know? Look around hard, among smokers and people who drink excessively, you will find beneath the tough manly appearance they are not half the man natured has endowed them with. Ditto for female smokers who go on alcoholic binges. Or you can ask a urologist friend and get some answers from him.

    i've never read anything on that before. and i don't recall my teacher mention it either. of course my memory power leaves much to be desired.. unfortunately, i don't have a urologist friend to turn to on this. not even an aspiring one

    to Loh: dang, i feel a little foolish. how could i hv been so thick . but hey, i know what a bloke means!

    what i can recall is 'aeroplane' or Hang Kong in Chinese. but it's kinda expensive, see here : http://www.bbesports.com/index_shuttle.htm, not HongKong casual players play this brand because it's durable and kinda lasts longer for them comparatively.

    to all: yeah i know smoking kills - thanks for the advices and thanks to the excessive production of phlegm, i quit smoking about 3 years ago, i used to be travelling all around, and I used to cough so much that every morning when i woke up in the hotel the first thing i did was to spend several minutes clearing my throat! scary - those yellowish phlegm - disgusting ...

    to taneepak: this is SCARY! thank goodness i quit already, we have believers here though thinking smoking definitely kills sperm. and many also believe coke kills sperms!!!!

    but you know what - quit smoking is some project if not mission impossible.
