Ha ha ha....I also agree with Joanne about parents being too kiasu.
There was once I played in a tournament. Two of my friends were playing too and were accompanied by their mothers. The mothers were chitchatting and joking and laughing with each other.... that was before their children's match was up.
Once the match was over, both of them were cold as ice!! You see, their two children played against each other!!
Players be competitive with one another.... ok lah, i can understand.... but parents compettitve with parents?

Haha once in a tournament I upset a player in a match that everyone thought I'll lose. That girl ah.. wah after that didn't want to talk to me.. I mean, we were pretty friendly before that match.. but after...
Honestly, I rarely see true sportsmanship in the tournaments I've joined. What about the rest of you?
Well, at least there are supportive parents out there. Hahaha I keep quiet about tournaments until the super last minute. When they leave me home alone for a few days or something lagi I take advantage.. play games as much as I want.

i think i need more info on the meaning of true sportmanship and vice versa..
List of examples of true sportmanship (in black), common examples of kiasu excuses (in red):-
1) Admitting to your opponent that he is better than u after you have lost
2) You are just lucky.. i didnt sleep well...I will beat you the next time we meet again!
Anyone care to help out here?....Joanne? ZhiWeiZ? Blessing?

There are so many excuses that I have heard in my lifetime... especially from GUYS. Think guys' ego can't take losing to a girl. Hahaha. No offence to guys here though, think most of you show sportsmanship.
Gotta study for trial now though, will think over it and list it down later.

How about these:-
5) I wish I hv your speed (as fast as u) in the court....
6) Refused to shake hands after losing / throw the racket in tantrum

But sometimes u know the excuses could be real like muscle injuries, who knows if he really got it in the middle of the game and he keep holding it back and continue the match...well just admit that losing isnt anything much, but learn from ur lost.....
sometimes i will admire or the urge for tat kind of speed, i dunno why but somehow i was pursuing for speed all the while !!!

So who's sitting for SPM this year?
Me... Zhi Wei... anyone else?
My exam ends 3rd December(Bible Knowledge).. so Zhi Wei, you'll have to wait 2 more days before I can join you in Megah. Although I will probably be playing that weekend already.. seeing so many other friends 'merdeka' by then. Hehehe.
Well, I'm not really that sad. Been waiting to sit for SPM for years now.. for me it's a turning point of my life.. you know, once I'm done with it, I have the freedom to decide what to do with my life, no longer stuck in that exam exam exam life. Unless of course I enter form 6.. but even that will be different.
First plan after SPM: BADMINTON. 1/2 times a week is barely working out my excess energy.

With u guys telling about SPM..... it makes me shivers
Lucky thing i'll not be taking SPM so soon.... still have time to concentrate on badminton

But hey, Dec. 3 will come soon enough, if time really flies, and I'll be freeeeeeee for a few months. Unless I choose to enter form 6, I'll probably have a lot more time for badminton. Even form 6 won't be as stressful.. compared to taking 12 subjects in SPM anyway.
