And mind you, although I'm a gal, i'm dont accessorize at all.
Fyi, some Chinese wear those stuff for feng shui or good luck, esp jade .
Molly codle culture - you seem to think our players are pampered - far from it, far from it. It's "Badminton is our hope, must win gold or else, must get gold or else". With current Sports Minister, the 'or else' does happen.
I agree with Xball that if Fu/Cai were Msians they would have been clobbered for not winning any major titles after 2 years partnership 2002-2004. Were they "molly codled" then? Currently Fu/Cai also lose some matches, if Msian, sure, kena teruk teruk.
Another example : Kido/Setiawan - already covered in other threads. If they are Msians, 1st half of 2007, when they keep losing, sure also clobbered (which never fails to happen when it's Msians, not neccessary by you but by others ).
Anyway, I think my looonggg posts have made your eyes hurt & make you pening, he, he, he. We end all this here, this eagle gotta fly somewhere.

Dude, suggest you see my question in total, nip picking bits and pieces wont do it. Your "you started by commenting that fu/cai won the WC in their third attempt and follow that with the question of how many times KKK have participated" is incorrect. Please refer to posting #56 where eaglehelang said "The pressure issue wise - earlier post I already gave example on Fu/Cai in 2004 OG. They flopped in their 1st OG 2004". I then responded by reminding her the titles Fu/Cai have won. zqloy then followed in post # 58, "Fu/CAi only won the WC after numerous attempt". I responded stating that Fu/Cai won the WC in their 3rd attempt and I asked him whether that was considered as "numerous attempts"? As a follow on question, I asked him how times has KKK participated in the WC?? Here, a straight forward answer will do but then you came along on that high horse of yours with your quicksand and incomprehensible rants.
I have said this before but will repeat it again. Time will be the judge. We will see in Beijing. It is as simple as that just like my simple question pertaining to the number of times KKK took part in the WC.
Quicksand?? Lets not make a mountain out of an anthill.
Have a nice day.

http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...218#post759218 is the most recent one I remember.
Sori, most recent not on clothing....but that was on being "You want to be glamour, no problem. But ensure the results are delivered as well la. Win the major titles like WC or OG."
This was after you commented Kido/Setiawan "Other than the technical abilities, I also noticed no bracelets, chains nor fancy hairstyle."
Similar comment in HK Open thread on Kido/Setiawan win. "I like Hendrawan/Kido for their down to earth nature. No showboating, no fancy stuff etc. No colouring of the hair, chains, numerous rings and bracelets. They are all business when on the court. In short, they are professional full time badminton players, not some metrosexual wanna be. No wonder they are World Champions."
In relation of it to KKK's hmmmm image, you already commented in other threads - the 'showboating' is the word you used oft for KKK, so.......
+ Badmania comment about your dislike of KKK's 'accessories' in this thread.
That's why I pointed out that perhaps(perhaps only) the accessories are for feng shui/good luck/ward off spirits -which some ppl do believe & wear. Hair - KKK hair now back to black/dark, whether he dyed it for fashion, or good luck, dunno-lah.
Stick to thread thingy - Most of the points/isssues here have already been discussed in other threads, so I just mention that particular point, waste energy to repeat, this also took another 5 paragraphs - just a matter whether the reader can catch it or not.

"You wanna be glamour, no problem. But ensure the results are delivered as well la. Win the major titles like WC or OG."
Ok, where are the major titles??? I mean the WC or OG??? Not Phillippines Open or Kedah Open etc. Again, no prob if one wanna be glamour but deliver la the WC or that Olympic gold, not some mickey mouse trophies.
But what is your point really?? I mean firstly you mentioned financial rewards in Msia not good enough and now you are going on about my comments about Hendrawan/Kido. For the financial part, I mentioned Denmark delivered that Olympic gold with less $$. For Kido/Hendrawan, yes they are down to earth with no chains or bracelets. And yes, they have that WC title nicely tucked away in their cabinet.
So, whats your point??? The accessories are for feng shui etc etc?? Feng shui and those magic mumbo jumbo aint gonna deliver you that WC or Olympic gold
Glad you like the colour black cos it is looking gloomy. Feng shui is gonna win us that Olympic gold in Beijing!?

Already said two posts back (he, he, notice I often say this) & Badmania eloquently phrased here :
"From my readings of Pemuda's posts so far, he is critical of Koo/Tan mainly because of Koo's image (ear-rings, show-off attitude, etc, which I stress may not reflect his true character of course). Once the tendency to be Becham-esque sets in, Pemuda thinks that they will not achieve big things."
Point is : 1) At one point you'll say being glamour ok if win major title, at another critise KKK esp on this as if it's related to performance, especially when they lose. Put it simply, you seem to include the accessories (chains, bracelets, hair colour) in the showing off image of KKK.
And not only one time. I'm not going to search for that one.
2) that the accessories may not be for "glamour" or showing off or 'metreosexual wannabe' image as you may think. Yes, yes, we laugh but some ppl believe in these things, if not the Feng shui experts wouldnt be rich.
Of course it doesnt win gold at WC or OG.
Denmark & rewards part, less $$$ kah? Question is which year they won?-I'm still searching on the info.
Anyway, my point is same : I dont think our current althetics are sufficiently appreciated - monetary & non-monetary in comparision to other countries (I already posted that earlier) - this is talking current, not past situation.
Dont repeat the Thomas Cup example, that already discussed extensively BCers here & other threads.
Non-monetary - I already gave Nicol David example - for all the titles she won(8 in 2007) & world best female squash player award, make Msia's name better, what thanks she got ? Must give 'penjelasan' for the 2 she lost, like she lost the whole year thru. Only demand results, complain and more complains.
Monetary - Of course, $$$ rewards dont guarantee gold or results just an indication. If not, why the other countries are prepared to give so much? Just to show their country rich?
Always the arguement is dont give too much rewards/praise, dont give too much rewards, wait they 'lupa diri' like 1992 time- as if the current amount they give is a whole lot.
Just shows to me what the government thinks of its sportspeople, no wonder many dont allow their children to go into sports, include badminton.
Open to individual interpretation - you may think it's good enuf, I think it's not, no point to debate.

Where's Rexy's whip?
Folks, if you were to look back, you'd see multiple tracks - all of them yours.
You're going in ever widening circles here
We've argued linguistics, haute couture, ornithology, statistics and whatnot
So, is anything new on its way?

WC or OG from KKK/TBH - coming in future, at least one of it, now only one year partnership.
Accessories - Whether it's for feng shui or not KKK know better, I dont happen to think it's purely glamour, neither do I think it factors in game play or make his image more appealing(as some young female fans think).
I do know of successfull ppl who really believe in that - we may think it's supersitious but they claim they got rich/successful from it .
Denmark & rewards part- nahhh not sleepwalking, had some work to do.
Yup, I know Denmark won before, the rewards part is what I wanted to check out. I asked what year(me go search later, now not free) - I said current althetics.
And yes, Peter Gade complained before about lack of support compared to Asia countries, etc.
And I think your point is Denmark had lack & yet they won win OG gold, why Msia cannot with all the support (come to think of it, Spore also havent won).
And yes, you think it's the mental weakness of the althetics & the lousy setup. Our past baddy players - could be wrong strategy, could be pressure, could be that Denmark player was really good in all aspects, skills, stamina, mental strength.
Other countries & rewards - Spore giving S$1 million(RM2.2 million), Indonesia 1 billion ruppiah(RM350K) for OG 2008 gold medalist.
Nicol - and also much critized for the 2 losses, like she lost thoroughout the year. Read the press reports - like world crumbling. You may think otherwise, up to you.
2008, bad sign or not, 8 more months to OG.
enuf said, the mods are watching, we supposed to talk abt Rexy cracking whip, wait get deleted some more.
