    Too dangerous!

    The Dato should show his superiority against LD on the badminton court, not the open roads with a fast car!

    Some people like Dato love cars, free choice and it's his $$$. Good for the Italian economy after all Euro is tanking...fast
    I seen people with expensive cars in Canada, parking far away from other vehicles (afraid of paint scratch and body dents), keeping those cars shinny and spankling clean all the time...must be quite a stress and chore. wonder how many of those Lambo, Maserati, R8 in Penang and MAS, and where/who knows how to properly service them. I can't see Lambo/Maserati opening a dealer ship in MAS, Audi could be possible since it is Volkswagen parent company.

    You've probably been away from Malaysia for far too long =D....Lamborghini just opened a new large showroom in KL, replacing their old showroom. Audi is fast becoming as common as Mercs and BMWs. Maserati is sold in a huge showroom alongside Ferrari. In fact, I reckon Ferraris are a more common sight than R8s in Malaysia. On where they drive their supercars...there's always the F1 circuit, otherwise it's on the highways. by the way...can see Dato's Blue Bentley along with some of the cars that participated in KKK's brother's wedding....

    Chong Wei enters the property development business
    By RAJES PAUL
    KUALA LUMPUR: World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei’s family did not own any property when he made the bold move to switch base from Penang to Kuala Lumpur in search of badminton stardom almost 12 years ago.
    Yesterday, Chong Wei joined forces with several business associates to launch his very own luxury condominium project – A Residency D’Suria at Ampang Hilir – with the smallest unit costing a cool half a million ringgit.
    Chong Wei, a director of Chong Wei Bina Jaya, a housing development company, was present with the other co-owners at the “My Dream House” property launch at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
    For Chong Wei, it was his first public appearance since a family problem, involving his father Lee Ah Chai, hit the headlines last week.
    File picture shows Lee Chong Wei returning a shot to Shon Wan-Ho of South Korea during their men's singles final match at the India Open Super Series badminton tournament in New Delhi on April 29, 2012. - REUTERS/Adnan Abidi
    Chong Wei said it was pointless to dwell on the past.
    “Yes, there were family problems but it’s in the past now. It’s all settled and I don’t want to worry about it. For now, I’m focused on the future,” he said.
    “I have made up my mind to be involved in business after my retirement. This (the launch of the condominium project) is my future. I need something to fall back after I stop playing badminton,” said Chong Wei.
    “As a child growing up, my family didn’t own any landed properties. As a player, I had a dream to buy a house for my family and I have done that. Now, I’m in this business so that I can provide others with homes.”
    Although, Chong Wei is all excited about entering the business world, his immediate task is to get into shape for the London Olympics next month.
    The badminton competition is from July 28-Aug 5 and Chong Wei is seen as the man to fulfil Malaysia’s elusive dream of an Olympic gold medal.
    Chong Wei, who injured his ankle during the Thomas Cup Finals last month, said he would be trying out court training next week.
    “I was really worried about my Olympic preparation after the injury. I’m still recovering but things are getting better. I will try out court training next week and see where I stand. There are about five weeks more and I can only get better,” said Chong Wei.
    “For now, it’s all about mental readiness. There’s pressure on me because expectations are high. I can only promise that I will go all out as this is my last shot at the Olympic Games.”
    Chong Wei’s main rivals are China’s top three players – Lin Dan, Chen Long and Chen Jin. Lin Dan and Chen Long surprisingly lost in the Thailand Open and Indonesia Open respectively – probably part of China’s mind games ahead of the Olympics.

    c'mon, nobody going into the property business to provide homes for other.
    people into the property business is because of big money in it, admit it, it's nothing wrong with that.

    if he is building houses to give them away to the poor, i'll eat my hat.

    or maybe he will take the profits from the luxury condo sales and build some low-cost housing for the poor.

    He didnt say he is giving away to the poor, lol, you are reading too much into the statement. Even the government doesnt do that.LCW cant say cos there's big money in it, it would look like he's crazy for money and arrogant. In any case, any statement in any manner also someone will complain.

    Frankly I hate to be in the Dato's position. With so many negative happenings just before his last quest to win the Olympics gold medal, yet he should indulge in such a huge business venture that could expose him to financial stress.

    In my view he can forget about the Olympics and concentrate on securing his retirement.

    Not really.
    Just that to continue with the daily training grind for another four years when age doesn't wait for him is enough to kill alll enthusiasm!
