    Default Me and BadmintonCentral.com

    After more than a year being a member here at Badmintoncentral.com, my everyday life has become more cheerful because:

    1. If i can't go and play badminton, i still can engage myself with badminton at badmintoncentral.com.

    2. If i go out and my wife ask me, 'where to?", I'll replied "to the cybercafe". Then she ask again "what for?", then i gladly replied," to play badminton with badmintoncentral.com"........and i can see that she is scratching her head after that with both of her hands maybe wondering how on earth could my husband end up playing badminton with a CPU at the first place.

    3. So addictate to badmintoncentral.com i am that everything that my friend ask me about badminton, i will end up answering ( without realizing it ) with Badmintoncentral.com:
    - "Which shop did you go and bought this racket?", i answered "Badmintoncentral.com"
    - "Which court are we playing" - again answered "Badmintoncentral.com".....this one i got a whack from my friend....and the latest one
    - "Where are we going for our dinner" - i answered to my wife confidently, "Badmintoncentral.com".......and again i got another whack

    4. If i go to work, i will open "Badmintoncentral.com" page first to read my mail, do this, do that, read this, post that........... before opening my gmail, hotmail etc

    Live! BadmintonCentral.com

    Hehehe, tell her BC also have female members, but we are just as crazy about badminton as male members. Cooking, home decorating, gardening...nope, not in the list. Shopping...depends shop what.

    Something I wrote some 2 years ago...

    Quote Originally Posted by wilfredlgf View Post
    I was walking down the street that day cold July evening. It had been pouring ever since the clock struck one in the afternoon and still hadn't stopped after six hours. It wasn't as heavy then but the ambient warmth of midday morning was a thing of the past.

    The street was deserted that evening as the workers at the docks made their way hastily home under the dim light of kerosene lamps lining the paved esplanade, noticing but showing little regards to the vagabonds shielding themselves from the falling rain under crates with one of their walls detached, huddling over a small fire lit in a metal powdered milk can.

    Light peeked through the cracks between curtains of windows, winking and occasionally showing the smiles of the hardworking man sitting in his chair at the head the table, holding hands with his beloved wife and children, saying grace and thanks for the food spread over the table. Next door an old man hunched over his table writing the headline for the morning's news as his assistant slumped over asleep nearby, catching up on sleep before the need to wake up and deliver the people their news.

    The streets were lit by bigger and brighter lamps the further I walked down the street as a restaurant came to view. Under the green canopy sat a young couple, impeccably dressed and groomed for their special night that will not give way to the rain. Smiles lined their face as they watched a waiter uncork the bottle of wine to the background of a violinist playing Romance-era music to set the hearts racing. Coyly they stole glances at one another, avoiding each other's eyes at the final moments only to be caught, resulting in downcast glances on the empty plates in front of them, blushing.

    A signboard hung on one of the doors that swiveled very slightly in the gentle but cool breeze of the evening that said, 'BF'. It was warmer inside as the fireplace lit up the place with nice soft glows that enhances the timber-paneled walls' rustic charm.

    I took off my jacket and sat down at the bar. A tall man who reminded me a Korean I once saw on the television came to me. "Nasty weather today. Bloody cold", he said. I nodded and he gave me a welcomed mug of hot cocoa. He gestured for me to join the crowd as they sat in front of a television that rippled with slight interference.

    I couldn't make out what it was they were watching, so I walked to the nearest table with an unoccupied seat and sat down. A gentleman with an easy smile nodded and shook my hand, his eyes crinkled slightly behind a pair of large glasses.

    "Loh", he introduced himself. "Cheung", another guy with glasses next to him who promptly stood up and left to the request of a customer, and a young girl whose name was Joanne, who turned to follow the spectacle on the television after introducing herself. A closer look at the screen showed two men in shorts and tees on opposite ends of a court similar to that of tennis but smaller and with higher nets.

    Both men smashed and lifted, moving one another all over the court in a contest of endurance, skill and wit. Every time the shuttle touched the green surface within the white boundaries, one group of the crowd cheered. The next time it happened on the other court, the group around me cheered. Banter were exchanged between rallies, ranging from the nationalistic to that of good-natured cheers.

    The mug of cocoa was full of taste as I nodded while checking the message on the mobile. Liverpool 4 - 0 West Brom, it said. Some fellas at the back corner pumped their fists while checking their own phone, possibly because of Manchester United and Arsenal's victory as well that evening, whilst on the table next to them a few men scrutinised a bunch of metalic apparatus imprinted with a stylised 'YY' logos, debating heatedly with one another over the pro and cons of one to the other.

    I suppose I'll hang around for a while, I thought.

    I sat back and watched as the score came to sixteen-to-sixteen on the television screen as the group at the front cheered. Everybody was tense and excited, staring hopefully at the two men exchanging strokes of hitting what looked like a rounded cork affixed with feathers, bringing oohs and aahs as it were hit and returned.

    The phone rang.

    "Hello", I said, as the crowd around me erupted again, shouting 'Come onnnnnnnn, jiaaaaaa youuuuuuuu!!" almost in unison as jeers came from the bunch at the front.

    "Me? Oh I'm in a cosy little place called...", I cupped the microphone and asked the man called Loh, "What's the name of this place, sir?".

    "Badminton Forum", he answered.

    Atrocious grandma!

    No kidding here.
    Even attempts to show her pictures of eye candy -- Taufik, Yu Hsin Hsieh, and Joachim Perrson -- have failed to elicit her interest.

    Advice to single BC'ers: pick a mate who likes sports.

    Disturbing that my wife doesn't like sports or disturbing that I mentioned male players who are good-looking? Don't worry, my marriage is grand ... baddy just isn't a shared interest.
