    re the 50mm standard lens, were you sitting quite close to the court or actually next to the court??..also, i would imagine you were using your viewfinder instead of the lcd screen to take the pics??..
    YES QUITE CLOSE TO THE COURT!
    USING THE VIEWFINDER IS THE ONLY WAY WHEN SHOOTING WITH A DSLR!

    I DON'T KNOW WHY. BUT IN GAME 3. THEY JUST LIFTED THE SHUTTLE TO THEIR OPPONENT AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL THEY LOST. SHOULD HAVE CHANGED THE TACTICS SOMEHOW.

    hmm, thanks for the tidbits, dranmo...hmm, do you know when and what kind of injury did Ms. Shiota suffered??.. I know the Uber Cup was held in April-May this yr and it's already more than 3 months since then; if so, then it's probably quite severe..

    hmm, don't be shy... i'm sure you can ask them in English(since you're comfortable writing in here)..Ms. Yonekura is probably more fluent in English, try asking her..

    Give a chance to see some lesser known players. Couldn't take a photo of all of them. But it's nice to give them some recognition!

    First time I've seen Yang Yang sponsor somebody. He wasn't happy with some line calls.

    Yeah, he's sort of trying a few different partners here and there to see what works as far as I know. But I'm not sure how long it will last as he's getting rather old now!

    Oh BTW, thanks for all the pictures, they're great!

    a lesser known player. Still can improve a lot on the psychological aspect. Not sure if he's really listening to his coach. Although he won, he doesn't seem to be concentrating that well. Maybe too confident of a win. But I think it's askill that needs to be practiced otherwise, when you're under pressure ina higher level match, it's difficult to make the shots.

    Hey...isn't that Indra Gunawan coaching the unknown Caucasian player over there I thought he went to Malaysia again?

    Unfortunately, I am still tied up in Singapore due to some personal matters...and it's increasingly unlikely for me to return back to HKG before the semi-finals. I do hope to return back on Friday in time to catch the semis and finals

    Meanwhile, I just have to be contented with watching the Singapore Satelitte later this afternoon.

    He, Andrew Smith, got one set from Lin Dan at Thomas Cup.

    Cheung, thank you so much for your pictures. Just a very technical question: the corners of most of your photos taken are darker than that of Red's. Is it issue of equipment?

    BTW, really wish you and Red will take pictures of us on the next BC gathering in HK, if any.

    hmm, even the shirt Andrew Smith wore is similar to Taufik's..
    badMania, take care of your task in S'pore first & foremost. The folks in HK will be waiting for you, whenever you're ready to go back. Hope you'll be back to HK soon though to catch the rest of the actions.

    Sure, you should Cheung.....get to know her better..
    No, really, eventhough she's not as fluent or comfortable in English, i knew she's able to converse in English because i actually experienced it myself on 2 occasions. And both happened at last yr's World Championships.
    1. First, it was the days before it officially began. I was helping out in the tournament's official hotel(tournament's desk) and noticed many players going in and out and up and down the elevators. One morning i noticed she was about to go to breakfast when a couple of Japanese people appeared, I guess they're related to the JPN players, and approached me. Both of them were trying to look for a JPN player, but unfortunately they couldn't speak nor understand English and vice versa, so i was quite baffled. Knowing i'm in a bit of a quandry, out of nowhere Ms. Yonekura appeared, as usual smiling and greeted other players. I then quickly called her before she was gone and asked her if she can help the 2 Japanese people. In my initial conversation with her, i noticed she can understand what i was inquiring and vice versa. Soon after she whisked those 2 Japanese people with her to the dining area.
    2. Another occasion occurred also at the World Championship. But at that time, i wasn't involved. It happened when i was down at the back area where the players were coming in and out. At that time, i was about to meet some INA players, when i noticed Ms. Yonekura was talking to a couple of people, also conversing in English. I didn't know what they were talking abt, but i didn't notice any translator beside her.

    So that's Andrew Smith ah....didn't really recognize him

    Yeah, my friend has bought one ticket for the final for me...so...I guess I could still make it back by Saturday or even for Friday night's semi-final
