btw, any sightings of Minarti Timur yet??..Did she come with the rest of the Philippines team(ie. the Asuncions)?? cos i believe she is coaching there??..do you know if she'll move over here to the U.S. and join Tony & Halim as coaches??..
How abt the 2 INA gals, Mona and Angie?? are they there already??..
oh, btw, i saw another player named Li Li Wang, playing under the INA flag??..do you know who she might be?? cos i've never heard of her before, at least playing for INA??..
anyways, hope to see you sometimes this week..

I just saw Minarti Timur and the other Indonesians at the Asuncion Badminton Center yesterday. No idea why their still here in the Philippines. Are they joining or not?
Lili Wang is a Chinese player who married an Indonesian player, Tek Ming. They're currently based in the Philippines.

Maybe Kyle has a chance if it isn't Chandra W.!

I guess it'll be a pretty good size contingency from Philippines. Do you know if both Lili and Tek Ming are coaching there?? My guess is they have left or at latest will travel today, your time, cos the event will begin this coming Tuesday(L.A. time)..

Lili and Tek Ming coaches for Bingo Bonanza, the company who sponsored the RP Open.

Thanks for the info and too bad though...Originally Posted by bratinella
I was expecting to see Tony and Minarti pairing up and put up a nice exhibition for the L.A./SoCal folks....Now, it seems like, if that is the current case, we won't be able to see them in action..Hopefully they'll make it here in time..

Its hard to get a US Visa if you are a Philippino. Too much hassle. But i don't think Lili and Tek Ming will have any problem.

If I see them again at The Asuncion Badminton Center this week, it means they really have a big problem. It means Tony will not have a mixed pair

Bad news...I guess, no Minarti this time..Originally Posted by bratinella
But at least the other Philippines players made it(the Asuncions, Lili & her husband and Puri Setyo??)..Hopefully next time she'll make it..
I guess i have to change my early prediction for the XD winner to be Halim & Angie...but who knows, still some pretty good pairs out there..

ah well, Halim/Angie vs. Tony/Minarti will be quite a spectacle.

Will try to get one soon..Originally Posted by kwun
However, i'm planning to attend the next 4 nights of actions(as that's where most of the main competition will be, not to undermine the QFers)..I'll review some matches(whatever i can see) & also take some pics(on & off court actions), bringing only my small digicam(same one i used @ last yr's WC)-argh, sorry folks, as i don't have a "weapon"(make that 2 "weapons") like what Kwun has.....
so, stay tune...or if any other local BC members(ie. Viper2005, harimau or other local OCBC members) who has gone to see, perhaps they can share with us some early pics or reviews??..

seems like there are quite a few siblings competing in the doubles events. well, i'm assuming they're siblings just from their last names. i guess this is common in smaller tournaments ...
