Raul gonzales is cool.Till now,He's still sharp for players his age.But i like beckham n carlos better.Those two player's shot n play is "special" in Real.Too bad beckham moved to galaxy already.Can't watch his bendy kick often on tv anymore.Luckily,he's still playing for the national team.
I think that u might like them because they're cute n stylish.Haha..preety different than me though.But at least we both idolize the same player.
Wish u all the best!

yes, raul is still superb...unfortunately luis aragones cant notice it
beckham should not play LA because MLS is too low compared to other leagues in Europe...that's not the level for him...
just hope Capello will line him up...
wish u the best too

Haha..the similarity of badminton n soccer is that they both use acquires more foot power.But what i meant was not that.What i meant is that the TH's backhand smash n beckham's bendy free kick n crosses r both something that is not every players can do.They're special,n spectators will always be hungry to see more of it.

hmmm....why i like arsenal. not really thierry henry because i liked them even when tony adams was playing. i guess i like the style. i just hope the style can translate to winning streaks. hahahaha. the year arsenal won the EPL unbeaten was the best in my mind. now i am hoping they could maybe get the treble like Man U did.
i like raul too. he is cute. but aside from cuteness these players are really good. very skillful. trademark speciality. beckham, roberto carlos, zidane (like dancing in the field), peter schmicheal, henry and many many more.

O..that's cool if u also love peter schmeichel!I adored him,n i were once became a keeper just because of that.Haha..That guy could really fly man!!
Zidane is a great player as well!!Fast n furious..n yeah..this guy could really "dance" among the defenders.

It looks our lady warriors have a wide range of interest, including football. I couldn't tell if they played or like to watch
But a few questions for you since you have been in Ina, Mas, and Chn. (1) What do you think about the education in these countries and which one is better? (2) How about badminton education, training, activities, etc. the things you have encountered in different places? (3) Do you think Chn will hold her lead in badminton or would Mas or Ina will overtake Chn in the future?
Last summer, I played badminton about three times a week in Beijing. First, it was very difficult to find a place to play because many were closed for the construction and repair work for OG 08. Second, it's quite expensive: 50 RMB/hr. Three hours cost 150 RMB plus taxi, spent about $30 each time or more. That seems to keep badminton out of the reach for most of the population.

The most fun would be my days at KL..since that was my high school period..u know how it is.Besides,my school got football field,swimming pool,gym,basketball court in its compound..n i live in its dorm,which enables me to use them all for free,anytime.Since i can't really enjoy that kind of facilities in jakarta.U gotta pay everything..n the school/universities compund r so small,unlike in other countries.Remember,i love sports.
2nd question..that's also depends.From what i have encountered..sports in china is a cheap thing.When i was still in beijing..i played badminton in our university,BLCU's court.The rent fee is around 15-20rmb/hour.I played with my friend.That was before i got really into badminton,though.SInce i only played it for fun.I was still more into soccer.
Things changed when i moved to guilin.Since the soccer field is always crowded here,i can't really play it.I got no team,n i don't know anyone.That's what turns me down.Then,i'm looking for a new sport activity.Badminton!The court rental fee in my univ compound is preety cheap.Only around 6 rmb/hour.Then i went for some courses.The coach fee is around 150/mth.3times/week.Just for a month though..then went to another place,with another coach.That time helped me more than the firat time.The same price n schedule.Also for a month.Then,after that,i'm all alone.I trained myself by playing more,n watch more videos of pro players.
The 3rd question,from my inside view,i believe china will hold a bigger chance to still dominate the future of badminton.How they develop new athletes from the juniours n everything..i doubt that they'll lose the domination in the future.Unless other countries really boost up on the development of new athletes..i think it's hard.
Wow..50rmb/hour?Where did u play?That's expensive!U should've played in the universities before.Their courts r much cheaper.Sport is supposedly a cheap thing in china.Include badminton.I dunno,i guess ever since the olympic is decided to be held in beijing,everything in beijing raised its price.
U want cheaper?Come to guilin?Believe me..this place got great players as well.As long as u're not trying to be a pro athlete..n just to be better in badminton..guilin is an option.Guilin got a place which has over than 30 courts in it..n behind it,there's another different place,which has around 20 courts.The rent fee is vary.Everyday,morning,from 6-10,u just have to pay 1 rmb..for that 4 hours.But make sure u come earlier,since it's usually crowded.The normal fee is around 18rmb/hour.But,If u're lucky,u can also play as u wish,for free,in the empty courts,until someone else rent it.
N there is a club,which got many good players in it.I just joined them not long ago.The place is called 甲天下，n the other one is 康胜。
Now,that's what i called as badminton frenzy!

Thanks for the infor and your thoughts. I couldn't image your high school could be that rich with all the facilities one needs. I don't think high schools in China can have that kind money and spaces.
Most universities in Beijing are on the north side and were too far for me to go so I went to the middle of the city called WangFuJin Ave., where there is a gym called DongDan Gym. I had to pay one or two days ahead, otherwise would not be able to get a court by just showing up.
You are much luckier than me with the cheap courts and coaching. Definitely, you will get better faster with help and practice. Mine is more for recreation with no ambitions, which you seem to have plenty

I would somewhat attest to that..
As for sports in INA, its availability and affordability, i would say, the level is roughly the same as in other surrounding countries. But badminton wise, it's not easy as soccer is still more popular.

A bit off topic-It depends..
2) Not all kids in SEA countries are able to adapt to be independent than those in the U.S. In fact, some of those kids, from the SEA countries, who go to schools abroad, tend to come from "wealthy" family. Which means, they would have grown up with maids, drivers, cooks, helpers to help them around. So, them being totally independent might not be the case. However, there are a few who can be independent on their own. As long as their daddys are able to keep sending them monies abroad, they'll be happy.

Thanks for the clarity. It's understandable that students with money would have less problem adapting.
