    Default OT chinese food

    don, there are northern and southern style of chinese foods, do you dislike both version in general? Also, if you have not accompanied by someone who know which chinese restaurant and what to order, i can see why your experience of chinese food may not so... pleasant. If you able to attend a chinese banquets, i think your opinion might be corrected. Could it be your view of chinese foods consist of dishes like chop suey, egg foo young, sweet and sour pork or ribs??

    Actually, you should ask whether the washroom is up to par with Western Standards. Believe me the toilets and bathrooms in China (except for the 4 and 5 stars hotels) are some what to be desired. I don't mind using sunk-in toilets (you will see a big difference if you compare the sunk-in toilets in Narita International Airport to the regular public WCs in Mainland China) as long as it is clean but . . . those in Mainland China are just . . . uhhmmmmm.

    umm... actually the 5 star hotel I went to in Guang Zhou, was pretty horrible :lol:

    Here's one tip for ALL to remember!!!

    "ALWAYS BRING YOUR OWN TOILET PAPER!!!!!"

    Toilet paper seems to be a luxury item everywhere in China.
    and yes I know that from experience.

    Keep telling us more about these camps badrad, because I had already been interested last year... like Cheung, I want to become a very very good amateur.

    Default Re: Badrad: Training camps in China

    Usually the training camps, offer room and board, as part of a seasonal rate... all inclusive of the training packages.
    but again as mentioned... you are there to train, and well I dont think luxuries such as duck etc, would be very approriate.
    anyone hear of "lucky duck" well that expression was probably derived in China at one of their badminton training camps.

    Default Re: Camp in Nanjing

    That's only 116 USD per year, cheaper than a yonex racket without string. I like those hours too. Now i need to invent an excuse to take a leave of absence to try out this camp. I like the name too, 'How o You' Camp

    So the main language in nanjing is mandarian. Do they also speak other dialect, for example: cantonese? Your english is pretty good.

    Default I can't speak Cantonese

    Local People in Nanjing speak Nanjing's dialect,Which is very similial to mandarian.If you can speak mandarian,there is no problem.My spoken English is poor,I can't talk in English freely.But Cantonese is much more difficult to understand.

    Default We are all amateurs

    We are all amateurs.So you need not worry about the level.But at least you love the game.Our coachs were once privincial plays.There are different level amateurs here.
    The best one won the runner-up in Nanjing's amateurs' badminton game.Most of the time we play freely,sometimes our coach gives us some advises.I don't play well in sigle,for I only join the camp for no more than a year.But I feel I've gotten great improvement in the past half year.I now can get 3-4 points in the game with our best one.And often the children proffecinal players come here with their coachs on Sundays.They play games with us upper lever,of course not me.I can get 4-5 points in the game with them.
