    Welcome to BadmintonForum, Yen. Do you play at all in Houston? What's the scene like over there?

    On another note, how's the high-tech sector industry in Houston?

    Shamefully, badminton isn't a "hot" sports here. Having hispanic as majority here, soccer is a bigger thing definately. Houston is the melting point for oil and gas industry. Looking at the oil price now it is difficult to be not busy in this industry.

    Being born and raise in Malaysia, it is difficult to get rid of the Malaysian slang "lah". But can't say the same to my 11-yr old son who goes to school here. Hmmm.. hopefully i have a chance to meet up with Malayali, would be great to find another Malaysian here in Houston. Thanks for the welcome ctjcad.

    ..despite his screen-name sounding like Malaysia or Malay, malayali is not of M'sian origin...I thought i just pass that tip along to you, in case you'll get excited knowing you're meet another M'sian & start speaking Malay to him...

    As ctjcad points out, malayali's name isn't what it looks to be.
    He is as Malaysian as I am Swedish

    Malayali is neither Malay-Ali nor Malaya-Lee
    He has posted a brief explanation here.

    Anyway, I hope you meet and organise more badminton.

    Have fun here, yen_saw

    yeah, i'm from ipoh. you have relatives here in ipoh? ipoh is still the same. old school town. i have never eaten the bean sprout chicken but i think you can safely assume that it is still good since people from all over peninsular malaysia still come to ipoh to have a taste of it.

    Hi yen, welcome onboard! And have fun!

    I attended a talk on investing in Oil and Gas in Texas, which is a relatively new thing here. But the promoter speaks highly of the returns especially now that oil prices have shot through the roof. He painted a very, very rosy picture.

    He also said that such investments are very common in Texas, which perhaps began more than 100 years ago.

    What is your opinion?

    I dont know how I missed this particular thread.
    I am not from Malaysia, I am from the state of Kerala, India.
    Thanks Oldhand for clarifying it...
    And I am not in Houston. I reside in Dallas now.
    The best way to find out details about the Houston clubs is go to their website. www.houstonbadmintonclub.com

    Hi Loh, sorry for being ignorant i have been away from this thread

    I am too working in oil and gas industry in Houston. and i have to say this industry is booming like never before. I am not sure what type of investment you are talking about, investing in oil and gas shares will generally guarantee a good return. But in the volatile US market, i would invest on commodities share for now. Property investment in Texas is also a hot thing, as this place is not as expensive as in NY or Cali right now, but it will soon become one.
