Both of them are doing alright. I don't think KKK will have his head shaved bald in Swiss Open.. its cold. Maybe he will do it when he come back to Msia.. hahah but you will neverknow.. maybe his teammates will shave for him there in Swiss open

My heartiest congratulations to this talented pair and may they continue to improve and make the Beijing Olympic gold their most important target.
Congratualtions too to Boon Heong's parents for having faith in him and the badminton loving fans in Kedah, especially TBH's father's friends, including our very own kokcheng.
Just like to see how KKK would look like with his bald head. If he is still bald when he comes down to Singapore for the Aviva Open, I would like to have a pic taken with him. I already had one with him and his lady partner during the Melbourne Commonwealth Games last March!

Just another piece of news
Kien Keat-Boon Heong Moved By Prime Minister's Support
From Jaiarajo Letchumanan
BIRMINGHAM, March 12 (Bernama) -- The All- England men's doubles champions Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong received a pleasant surprise when Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi called them by telephone to congratulate the Malaysian duo on their victory after the match.
They had also received a similar call from Youth and Sports minister Datuk Azalina Othman Said.
"We were caught by surprise when told that the Prime Minister was on the line and wanted to speak to us. I thanked the Prime Minister for his personal support and for taking the time to call us," said Kien Keat.
He added that the call came about 20 minutes after the match had ended last night.

Doubles Victory Shows M'sians Can Rank Among The Best, Says Abdullah
PUTRAJAYA, March 12 (Bernama) -- The spirit of "Malaysia Boleh" shown by the Malaysian team who won the All-England men's doubles title in Birmingham yesterday indicated that Malaysia and Malaysians could rank among the best in the world, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said Monday.
The prime minister said the Malaysians' spirit, faith and values would determine whether Malaysia and Malaysians could achieve the desired position.
Abdullah on behalf of the Malaysians congratulated Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong for winning the title.
"We got back what we lost 25 years ago," he said in his acceptance speech after being conferred the Napoleon Hill Foundation Global Leadership Award at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre, here.
Abdullah said he watched the match and described it as a very exciting moment.
"I am happy they have won. I have tried to call them. Surprisingly, the prime minister could not get in touch with them," he said in jest.
The duo defeated world champions and top seeds Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng of China in the final match 21-15, 21-18 for the title at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham.
Razif and Jalani Sidek were the last Malaysian pair to secure the title in 1982.
>>Even PM said it an exiting games..hah

I am so happy and don't know how to express the feelings by seeing Malaysian Doubles winning the All England title.
Good Luck to them for the forth coming tournaments and be mentally prepared.Rexy(coach) done his best and hats off to him.
I hope after this,men's single could show some suprises as the doubles.All it depends on their mental strength.
Anyways good luck to all of them.

BAM, Rexy and their respective families/colse friends must help them realise their full potential. Staying humble and not letting achievements go to their head will make them great champions in the years to come.
