    Fujian's terrain is hilly which allows it to maintain the many Han Chinese sub-groups' various dialects in addition to the common language (Ordinary man's common language sometimes wrongly referred to as Mandarin). There are about 3 main groups of dialects in Fujian plus some smaller groups, with Hakka being one of the latter. The 3 major groups are the Fuzhou people or Eastern Min dialect, the Min Nan people/dialect one of which is sometimes referred to as "Hokkien", and the Putian dialect. All the 3 Min Nan sub-groups can be found in SE ASia, mainly in Malaysia, Taiwan, Singapore.

    If your surname name is Tan, or Lim (Lin), or Ng then you are almost definitely a Fujianese. These 3 surnames form the biggest names in Fujian, from very good pedigree.

    Surname Lim ,Tan or Ng can also be Chuchow or Teochew or Hainanese.. Ng can also be Cantonese.Hakka Lin is also pronounced as Lim.

    Chuchow dialect is closer to Min Nan than Fuzhou, which sounds more like Japanese.

    Lim, Tan or Ng is likely to be Lin,Chen,or Wang .

    People who have relatives in Fujian say that the classification is more like 18 sub-groups.

    Lin Dan happens to be from a Hakka village in Fujian.

    Many others in BC can confirm or correct these.

    Would be very surprised if China youngsters can speak or understand dialects, the majority of youngsters in Msia

    can only use Huayu. A lot of immigrants from Fujian to Msia speak dialects especially if they are from rural areas but they are totally incomprehensible.

    Never knew Chen Hong was Hakka, always assumed he was Fuzhou like Tang Xian Hu.

    but it's the truth declaration said all over again and TSB knew better than to be offended by that simple statement (I hope, since I know you are a good coach TSB, and a good man ^^)... and I believe those three respect each other for they have been together for long ...

    All-England champ Chong Wei happy with current situation in training programme
    By LIM TEIK HUAT and KNG ZHENG GUAN

    SEPANG: Lee Chong Wei wants to hold on to his status as the world No. 1 ranked singles player heading into the London Olympics next year. And he is ready to do it with or without coach Misbun Sidek.

    Chong Wei, who returned home early yesterday morning after a successful defence of the All-England title in Birmingham, is coming to terms with the possibility that his long-time coach may not return to take charge of him.

    Misbun handed in his resignation letter to the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) at the end of last year and Chong Wei immediately expressed a desire to leave the national team too if his coach was not persuaded to return to the fold.

    Despite efforts made by the BAM, including their president, Datuk Mohd Nadzmi Salleh, to coax him to change his mind, Misbun has kept mum on his future undertakings.

    But Chong Wei has softened his stance and is now comfortable with training under Tey Seu Bock, who was previously assisting Misbun.

    “If Misbun comes back, it is certainly good news for me. But if he doesn’t, I’m okay with it,” said Chong Wei, who has held the world No. 1 ranking since the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

    “I have no problem. My only concern now is how I manage myself and stay in focus.

    “I have bigger tournaments like the world championships in August and the Olympics next year to look forward to. I’m fine with the current arrangements. I will continue to give my best shots to bring back good results.”

    After receiving a warm welcome home by Nadzmi upon arrival at the KLIA, Chong Wei and the shuttlers later paid a visit to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s offical residence at Seri Perdana in Putrajaya.

    The visit over a breakfast of nasi lemak and teh tarik saw Chong Wei being presented with a gift of RM100,000 in share bonds by Najib for his triumph at the All-England.

    The BAM patron, Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor, who is Najib’s wife, also handed him a watch. She also expressed the hope that Chong Wei will be successful in his mission to bring back an Olympic gold medal for Malaysia.

    Chong Wei chalked up a convincing 21-17, 21-17 win over Olympic champion Lin Dan of China in the final last Sunday to retain the All-England title and he said that it was a psychological boost for him.

    “I lost to him in the South Korea Open final in January but felt that I had narrowed the gap then,” he said.

    “But after this win, I believe that little separates us. It is our performance on the day that matters now.”

    Chong Wei will take a break from competition before going for the India Open Super Series tournament next month.

    I hope that this year at this 2011 India Open Super Series tournament, LCW will stick to nasi lemak and teh tarik for his meals.

    I think BAM will be sending Malaysians to cook for him this year.

    How about "roti prata"? Should be quite common in India, though by a different name.
    But I guess anything to do curry to be best avoided.

    I commend LCW for taking a positive mental attitude (PMA). It now shows that he has become psychologically stronger and can rely on himself to deliver the goods. This augurs well for his preparation with London Olympics 2012 as his ultimate goal and gold for MAS.

    If he succeeds it boggles the mind what sort of presents he would then receive.

    What i see after aprils fool day

    What will be in the press is exactly here

    Thanks Chris for the thread's title

    'Misbun is working for malaysia badminton without bam'

    He is slowly guiding chong Wei from behind to adapt to training under tsb and the trainers

    without him physically in the court of course

    with the recent all England win, it has just been proven it works

    and I think chong Wei has accepted it now

    A fact we all should know, misbun has given up his career for Malaysian badminton

    because he knows Malaysia needs an Olympic gold badly.

    And the only chance is through lcw.

    He isn't selfish to negotiate with bam and drags further

    as he knows it will eventually disrupt the once in a lifetime chance for lcw

    and also for Malaysia only hope for Olympic gold

    I truly salute him

    P/s

    Bam, do your part - your last call to bring misbun in and not the other way around

    It's ironic isn't it? I see it this way;

    * LCW wishes to have Misbun back
    * Misbun wishes to help LCW
    * BAM stands between them

    Politics do a lot of harm sports.

    .
    I don't know who is playing politics now.

    BAM has offered MS to coach LCW only and only MS to coach LWC. MS need not have to coach other players and other coaches are not to coach LCW. What it means is the two will be attached to each other at least until London Olympics 2012. BAM also gave MS whatever assistance he needs including the services of the sports science specialists, yet MS is playing "hard to get".

    Now LCW has come out to say he will accept whatever arrangements by BAM for the national cause. He did not now demand that only MS to coach him. What it means is that even without MS, LCW will do his best to cooperate with BAM so as not to interfere with his preparations, including training under TSB. Now if LCW does well it will benefit TSB as a coach, just as it has benefitted MS.

    After retaining his AE crown, LCW shows self believe by saying he is equal to LD and the form of the day will determine who will be the winner. LCW has gone a notch up in mental strength and when he strengthens this department further, LD will find difficulty in beating him as before.

    So MS can go (I thought he's already gone) but LCW will stay to wave the MAS flag!

    Yes misbun is gone.. on paper... the tricky situation is.. BAM is worried that his absence might affect LCW in some intangible level. hence the drama.. they could have just let things go its natural course and let MS do his own thing. Concentrate on LCW, proceeding with the program..

    so a little credit to BAM in.. for at least giving it a try, and get Misbun back.. at least they can say 'we did try our best'

    Yes I think BAM has gone out of its way to accommodate MS but MS is giving them the thumbs down, which is disturbing.

    LCW has shown the way by reconciling with BAM and the situation and doing the best he can. In the midst of all this "toing and froing" he was even able to subdue LD in the AE. But he needs to settle down quickly and not be distracted by the "MS-BAM politics".

    If MS is really interested in LCW's welfare he should make a definite decision without any further delay to allow LCW to go about his business of becoming the Olympic Champion.
