    ah.. those were the days.. It's always 'shiok' to see him diving here and there

    I saw him some years back at an electrical appliances shop. I was with my family buying a TV and he was there buying something too. He's not very tall in person.. with the curly hair...

    hahaha, pretty close to my picture of him which a hard working scavenger type player. Dish out any shots to him and FKK will go for them, the closer the ground the better

    Foo Kok Keong is respected by many for his never-say-die attitude as a player but same cannot be say for his current life. After the 92 Thomas cup which land him a fortune, he retired and became a Perodua car dealer. He is also being sued bankrupt. His current life can be described as "unpeaceful" - thanks to alcohol binge and woman. The last i heard of him was last year where he gone into hiding after he hit a woman (daughter of triad's ppl), and these people were searching for him.

    Just watch Foo Kok Keong been beaten by Yang Yang in the world cup 1989 MS final.

    One wonders how such a man could torment the great Zhao Jian Hua in the semi final and got himself to the 2nd placing. Steve Baddely who was commenting on the match said that FKK beat Yang Yang in HK open semi final two months before this match.

    I really miss the likes of him some one with no special talent, did not exhibit fantastic badminton skills but play competent enoouh with a lot of grit and determinantion to stand shoulder to shoulder with great champions, Two classes below the best my foot He was top class for positive attitude and the complement comes from no other than How Jia Chang.

    Yes, I know he ran a pub and that's an occupational hazard. Hence the drinking problem. Definitely his postbadminton life is something for other players to avoid.
    He is viewed with pride in his hometown for his badminton acheivements but people also are realistic about his current predicaments.

    then the organizer said he want to make some show...
    there will be a game FKK partner one of our player here...against our top doubles player here...
    then another match is FKK playing single (his best performance last time)..
    so before that my friends are worried how to play with this ex formal world champion...
    so when the days has come...
    we go there half an hour earlier afraid of running out of seat....
    then unexpected....not some much crowd...
    just like 20-30 people attend the match...
    then FKK in action...
    against our kampung player...
    woooo...really unexpected...he really like a guy just learning to plays badminton...
    miss hit the shuttle...
    cant step forward to reach the shuttle ....
    actually he lost the glory last time he got .....
    we were so dissapointed...
    once a time, he was a world champion...but now......haiiiiiiiiiii....
    then after that ...we asked him how long he did play badminton...
    his answer is very long time ago didnt paly....

    How come he is desperate? He became Millionaire after MAS clinched the TC in 1992. All players received hefty rewards from government and private sectors. This include cash monies, land etc...
