hcyong, pls read this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_five
some quote from that page, "Amongst baseball fans, Glenn Burke is recognized as the player who invented the high five. In 1977 he ran out onto the field to congratulate his Los Angeles Dodgers teammate Dusty Baker for hitting a home run in the last game of the regular season. His celebration has since been imitated by athletes and fans in virtually every sport around the world. The second recorded "high five" came moments later when Baker returned the favor in celebration of Burke's first major league home run."

Koo_fan, another definition from Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_five
definition of high/low-five
A high five is a celebratory gesture made by two people, each raising one hand to slap the raised hand of the other — usually meant to communicate mutual satisfaction to spectators or to extend congratulations from one person to another. The arms are usually extended into the air to form the "high" part, and the five fingers of each hand meet, making the "five".

Only those who are related with an issue will say something about that issue.

high five is a symbol of appreciation.yes.technically generally.literally.
But in zakry-fairuz case,try to understand that they are trying to say
'its ok brother.we'll do better next time'
'malaysians,this is not the end of the journey.we are still here.fight for our nation'
Even if its not,why do we have to be prejudice?

Like when i joined a company, the boss will shake my hand as a gesture of welcoming me to the big family, but when i got sacked when i did something TERRIBLY wrong, i dont think the boss will shake my hand as it is the wrong gesture to do.
The handshake is initiated when the two hands touch, immediately. Its purpose is to convey trust, balance, and equality.

Stay cool, give some faith to the players. They will come back strongly.
This is NO big upset!

As for Fuzzy, you may think it's childish, but Rexy didnt ask them not to do it. They normally do that bf the start of every rally, as encouragement to each other "We are one, we'll do good this next rally."

From The Star:
Men’s doubles losses mar Malaysia’s campaign in qualifiers
By RAJES PAUL
PETALING JAYA: It would have been a perfect outing for Malaysia in the Thomas-Uber Cup qualifying tournament if not for the minor setback in the men’s doubles on the final day of action in Ho Chi Minh City on Sunday.
Malaysia lived up to their promise when the men’s team confirmed their place in the Finals, which will be held in Jakarta from May 11-19, as the Asian qualifiers champions.
The women too did their part by finishing as one of the top three teams to win automatic berths for the Finals. Malaysia finished third in the qualifiers.
But the men’s doubles players’ inability to overcome South Korea’s strategy stole the headlines. After all, the premier world team competition is all about plotting the right strategies.
On Sunday, Malaysia took on a weakened South Korean team and rode on the strength of their men’s singles players to score a 3-2 win in the final.
The defeats of world No. 3 Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong and Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif to the scratch combinations of Lee Jae-jin-Jung Jae-sung and Park Sung-hwan-Hwang Ji-man spoiled Malaysia’s hopes of keeping a clean slate in the qualifiers.
It looked as though the South Koreans made full use of the opportunity to try out different combinations while Malaysia stuck to their same old pairings in a bid to collect Olympic ranking points.
National chief coach Yap Kim Hock admitted that the men’s doubles were caught with their pants down against the South Koreans.
“Our players have the potential to beat anyone in the world and lose to anyone as well. We are still working on helping our players to be more consistent,” said Kim Hock in a telephone interview from Ho Chi Minh City before leaving for home yesterday.
“The South Koreans fielded fresh faces for the final tie (the scratch combinations) while we fielded the same players. It should not have caught our players by surprise. In fact, our players did not play up to the mark but we will be more than prepared for the Finals.
“Now, these players will go back home and focus their preparation on the All-England and Swiss Open (in March).”
However, it was a different story for Malaysia as far as team strategy was concerned in the Uber Cup. They could even afford to try out different line-ups to confuse their opponents.
In the third place playoff against Hong Kong, Malaysia could afford to rest national No. 1 Wong Mew Choo and still seal the tie with a 3-0 win.
Said Mew Choo: “In the past, it was easy for our opponents to read the team line-up. Now, we can change and swap players and still give our opponents a tough time. It speaks well about the depth of the Malaysian women’s team.”
Meanwhile, the 12-man and 12-woman cast for the Thomas and Uber Cup Finals have been completed, except for one slot in the women’s team event, after the end of the qualifiers in the Asian, European, Pan-American, African and Oceania zones.
The Badminton World Federation (BWF) will use the world rankings on Feb 29 to determine whether Hong Kong or Scotland get to go to the Finals based on a new ruling in the Uber Cup. Both are the fourth-ranked teams in the Asian and European qualifiers and the team with better overall team rankings will get to go.
As usual, the five teams set to challenge for honours in the Thomas Cup will be Malaysia, South Korea, Denmark, defending champions China and host Indonesia.
China and Indonesia were exempted from the qualifiers. In the Uber Cup, the title is as good as defending champions China’s.
