I also hope to see you there (as well as in Toa Payoh Sports Hall) with your camera as I may not have much time to take pictures. By now you should be more experienced with your 'new' cam.

Not sure if there's lack of funds or for historical reasons but I had been wondering why don't SBA just rebuild the whole building.
I borrowed my friend's Canon 350D for the Aviva Open 06. Am still undecided whether to buy one since prices have dropped recently.
I was hoping you will participate in the Masters competition. Have not seen you in action before.

I'm too senior and handicapped (both in age and in physique) for the Masters. I'll be clobbered by the young men in no time and will then be out of action for the rest of the time.
You should be in action instead.

As such doing any major work on the building may be expensive and difficult as it has to adhere to strict guidelines set out by the authorities.
For example, there is this "3R"s principals for conservation of such buildings or sites, namely, maximum Retention, sensitive Restoration and careful Repair. Total reconstruction goes against accepted international conservation practices.

johnps, thanks for your explanation and the links.
If the Singapore Badminton Hall was officially opened in 1952, this building is now 54 years old . Interesting to note that the venue was used for political activities and rock concerts.
off topic, I miss the dear old National Library. Too bad it had to go....

Many have regretted the senseless destruction of old buildings, particularly those of historical significance to Singapore. Younger generations of Singaporeans will be the ones most affected as some parts of Singapore history will be lost to them.
Similarly, the conservation of rare animals, plants and the enivironment are vital to the continued peaceful existence of mankind. Destroying them may lead to the ultimate destruction of ourselves.
Although a little late, it is at least heartening to see that the Singapaore government is making last-ditch efforts to preserve as many of the historical buildings and rare animal and plant species, like Pulau Ubin's nature reserves, the mangrove swamps, etc.

With the absence of Kendrick Lee, Ronald Susilo should not face too much opposition in taking the National Men's Singles title this year. Last night, he leisurely disposed of youngster Louis Tan Zi Jing 21-13, 21-15 in 20 min, a score which helped Louis to gain some confidence in himself.
His junior teammate, Derek Wong, may offer some resistance but is not expected to create much problems for Ronald. It would be good if Derek could take a game off Ronald!
In the other categories, many of those who receive regular training under the various SBA schemes will likely face one another in the final stages. Those from the clubs with less intensive training will find the pressure too much for them. A look at the results will confirm this trend.
For example, in the MS match last night, Hamon Shen gave a good account of himself but still succumb to Derek Wong 21-12, 21-16 in 20 min. The physical demands were telling on Hamon.
With their pressures over after the Doha Asian Games, Ronald and Li Li could afford to relax in the XD and seemed to enjoy themselves in their match against Khoo Kian Teck and Quek Siao Yen, their current and former national teammates. Ronald and Li Li cruised to a casual 21-13, 21-11 win.
It's good to see more than the usual number of entries for XD.
Some pics on their XD match:
