    hehe - i never understood how this worked, but it's handy.

    we had a number of asian players in our university badders team, some took english names. i don't think there was any method to how names were picked.

    it certainly meant it was easier to distinguish between 4 different lee's and 3 xie's..

    Why did you pick that name? Brian? Hmmm... If this is true, then Cai and Fu must like boyband so much... Brian from BSB and Lance from N'Sync... Cute

    Let me explain it if you don't mind.

    First of all, Chinese characters are ideographs. Some Chinese characters sound the same (can't imagine all the 10,000 practical Chinese characters sound different). So you have to have the knowledge of Chinese characters (how it looks / to be written) in order to know their meanings.

    Take "Fu Hai Feng" as an example. "Fu" is his family name and usually has no meaning. But "Fu" do have meaning(s) in other occasions.

    "Hai Feng" are his first names. "Hai" means "sea" and "Feng" means "peak". But you have to be reminded that there are so many other Chinese characters sound "Hai" and other sound "Feng". So just don't automatically corresponds "Hai" to "sea" each time. It is just an English "sound translation" of Chinese characters.

    For his English first name, just like mine, it is most probably chosen by himself when he was grown up for the sake of communication with friends and foreigners.

    only Cai n Fu ? How about Bao ? His English name is Kevin. isn't Kevin also in BSB ?? so i think 3 of them maybe like boyband so much. hehehe
    Is it true Brian is Fu's English name?
    seems like Fu doesn't really fit with that name,, hehe,, well, but it's up to him. Although his English name is Brian or something else but he is still Fu Hai Feng. hehehe

    Btw, i wanna say Yannie you're so lucky,, hehehe

    That's exactly why I said that. Kevin, Lance and Brian, all from boybands. Hahahaha. And because I like Brian from BSB the most, so I picked Brian instead of Nick or Howie or some other names. Just a wild guess, mind you.. Hahaha.

    Hey guys, after watching many times the match between KJ and BCL, can anyone confirm me if the racket that KJ using is the new Pro Kennex Dynamic 800 or not? The colour looks very like it and the stencil is clearly the Pro Kennex sign!!!!!
