Thread: Howdy all
01-08-2008, 05:53 AM #1
Finally I start an Intro. Just recently found out there's such a thread.
As you know by now, I'm from Msia & female, as per my profile.
The rest, let you guess, he he he.
My nick, some have asked : Eagle helang. Helang is malay word for eagle.
I added helang for practical reasons. There're lots of ppl using eagle as nick, so is eagle 1, eagle2, eagle3....
So, after some time, I got tired of "this nick is not available" thing, so decided to add a malay word behind eagle.
Since then, no prob registering online, over the years, stuck with me.
As for badminton, me very, very lousy. Badaddict Jr can beat me 21-0, 21-0 anytime . I dont play anymore, just spectator, so the technical stuff leave it for you all. My 'passion' now is more the internet.
The other info, it's in the threads, here & there. I havent been here that long, shouldnt be too hard to find. Have fun!

Welcome to Badminton Central !!!
I have yet to search for your info that you've already posted:
2) Marital Status
3) State which I come from
But you have more than 1,000 posts to search.
BTW, how come you love eagles?
01-08-2008, 07:22 AM #4
1,000 posts not that hard to search, do word search.
OK, give hint :
For race, I mentioned it in HK Open 2007 thread, reply to Badmania on Kido/Setiawan's, it was either in Semis or Finals.
For marital status, I think it was in General forum, reply to koo-fan.
For state, make it easy for you, just ask Player from Malaya, same state.

1) Dont think Msia have eagles. What kinds I like- the one's that's on USA symbol, dont know what it's called. Supposed to be powerful birdy. Favourite animal as a kid, so just stick with the nick.
2) why no play baddy - a) I dont particularly like playing badminton, and
b) I dont socalize much. Outside of work, I prefer to face my PC -> human interaction can be very exhausting.
c) Excercise - sure, I have to do a lot of going here & there when I work(literally) , so after that I'm too tired for more physical exertion. And no, I'm not a PE teacher or aerobics or dance.
d) The people I know who do play badminton, play on Sunday, I work most Sundays - except if got baddy tourney, he he. My off day, they work, so....
I ask you back, do you play? Cos I know western countries badminton not so popular.

i've seen eagles in malaysia, and why isn't it an animal?
i would have classified all birds as animals.

Itís interesting a child wanting an eagle as a pet symbol, which is usually a more boyís liking. I can see the character of being strong minded and competitiveness, even to this day
I do play a couple times a week and bring the family along. My skill is on the poor side, but competition is not what on my mind. Badminton players tend to be minorities in this country from other parts of the World. We sometimes donít get to see each other and spread out far and between. Badminton time really is for us to keep in touch and can unite people under a good cause. I help out with local play, and make sure the time and places.
Another important objective for some of us is to promote badminton locally. Getting more people to play and children to learn how to play. Iím hoping to get a student team going soon at my kidsí school. So when they go to university one day, they can have at least one sports they can be good at and enjoy to do. In university, students who play badminton are few, but again they can be a very close and supportive group, which one may need or depend on while away from home, just like us away from our original places
Btw, facing PC and participating in the forum is more exhausting to me than playing badminton

Good, you still play & promote the sport over there, whether big or small way.
Btw, you been watching the Veoh.com badminton videos kah? Quality ok?
I tested the ones I uploaded, seems blurry(you call it fussy) due to lagging in connection. Original very clear - from mikemike, asiatrader. Just wondering if Veoh becoming like Youtube, pic quality drop.
Got ppl seems really interested in KBH vs Wacha, 44 views. Taufik vs Kenderick Lee also not so popular

Eaglehelang, you will find a place called Langkawi north of Penang to have some resonance to your love for eagles. Pulau Langkawi means Eagle Island. In the town by the sea you can see a giant Eagle monument in Eagle Square, which commemorates the origin of Langkawi. Lang was derived from the Malay word Helang (eagle) and Kawi (marble) was derived from Sanskrit. It was known originally as Helangkawi, now known as Langkawi.
BTW, Langkawi (under Kedah) and Kedah were under the rule of Thailand as late as during WWII. After the war both reverted back to Malaysia. That explains why the Thai influence in Langkawi is very extensive. Here is the best place in Malaysia for Thai food.
