    Those days, we play in "open air" courts and have to be at the court at 6.00am to "chup" (book) the court before others.

    I dunno what you refer to as 'those days'...during my time in the 60's and 70's, 'those days' we drew lines in the dirt ground and string a net with height unknown and play in open courts when the wind blew we stopped till the wind stopped. My friends are like me poor like a church mice, there was no way any of us could afford those Dunlop/Yoneyama rackets but we do have great friendship till these days and happily we played together in our small world, not knowing what's better out there. Even my school did not have indoor court, and I have never played in one. Each time I went home, my friends treat me like I never left, I consider myself rich with friends for life. Now I heard of you guys buying hundreds of ringgit racket, you are really blessed. As for air travel, I had never taken a flight in my life and my first flight was a 1-way international flight to Canada to study engineering. And when I first arrived in Canada, here I was alone in the airport, and took a bus to YMCA and began my 30+ years stay in Canada. Now I am eyeing retirement, and how do I ever know that, that flight out of Malaysia was a flight out for good.

    With that 1 way international flight to Canada, Malaysia probably lost one one of her great badminton player but definitely lost one of her talents.

    I put a pillow under my head and thunk over your post over the weekend....hmmm, OTB 'MAS great badminton player' 'one of her talents' sounds gooood and why not? It brings honor to my family, patriotism to MAS, rub shoulder with those CHN/INA chaps and beat the heck out of them (I wish)....but then I suddenly wake up from my sleep and realize that my favorite player ZJH only gotten that $1.5K to $3K over-sized cheque for winning Opens in those days, not even worth to invest my time and gets back pain, ham string pull, in this baddy thingie,and when I am done, I have to open a Hainan chicken birdie rice shop to survive. Add to that, the most I get for being a baddy star in those days is a second hand Proton that cannot even putter up the hill to Genting before it smokes up, not the Ferrari thingie, not the Dato thingie, definitely not the connection that Dato has, not the 100 Plus, YY endorsement that LCW gets these days. Anyway, thanks for thinnking so highly of me, but I thunk I pass. But your post certainly makes me thunk deep....hmmm, baddy star of MAs, face of MAs baddy....nah, it is far safer to do engineering and a Lexus waiting for me when I retire

    OTB,

    Your weekend well spent.

    From your above post, I sensed there is small sign that you may have been a good and promising badminton player but lack passion to pull you through to become a successful badminton player. Those days, passion is the thing that changed lives and you probably did the right thing to do engineering.

    On another note, there are many successful Hainanese Chicken Rice businesses.

    Coach Paulus quits BAM

    by rajes paul

    KUALA LUMPUR: It is not even one year but Indonesia’s Paulus Firman has quit as Malaysia’s badminton coach.
    On Thursday, the soft-spoken Paulus, who joined Malaysia’s stable as a coach in January this year, said that he had submitted his resignation letter to the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) at the end of October.
    Paulus would have loved to continue coaching but some family problems back home in Jakarta has forced him to review his status with BAM. He will serve out his contract until the end of this month before returning to Indonesia.
    “It is just unfortunate that I have to leave. I have handed in my resignation letter. I have to put the interest of my family first and that is the only reason behind my decision,” said Paulus, who was a women’s doubles coach with the All-Indonesia Badminton Association (PBSI) prior to his arrival in Malaysia.
    “I know it is only a short stint here but I have enjoyed working with the Malaysian shuttlers,” said Paulus, who coached Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong and several other men’s doubles players.
    When asked what his plans are and whether he would join Indonesia’s national team under the guidance of national coaching director Rexy Mainaky, he said: “For now, my plan is just to go back home.”
    Without Paulus in the BAM set-up, Pang Cheh Chang is set to oversee all the men’s doubles pairs. Besides Kien Keat-Boon Heong, there are seven other pairings and it will be a huge task for Cheh Chang to handle alone.
    The seven pairs are Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong, Goh V Shem-Teo Kok Siang, Lim Khim Wah-Ow Yao Han, Teo Ee Yi-Chooi Kah Ming, Yew Hong Kheng-Tan Yip Jiun, Nelson Heg Wei Keat-Tan Wee Gieen and Tai An Khang-Low Juan Shen.
    Paulus is the second key person to leave the BAM set-up under the new administration headed by Tengku Tan Sri Mahaleel Tengku Ariff.
    In September, Tan Aik Mong gave up his position as the BAM’s Talent Management Group (TMG) director after 18 days on the job because all his new plans were rejected.
    Currently, Tengku Mahaleel is acting as the TMG director.
    National singles coach Rashid Sidek also quit the national team in September because he did not like the changes made by Aik Mong then. However, upon the advice of Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin and following Aik Mong’s decision to leave, Rashid rejoined the national fold.
    Rashid currently trains the men’s singles players with Tey Seu Bock and Hendrawan.
    For the record, Paulus is one of the many foreign coaches in the last 13 years who have had a taste of coaching in Malaysia before leaving. The others are Rexy, Yoo Yong-sung, Park Joo-bong, Morten Frost and the late Indra Gunawan

    Rajes Paul wrote that Yap Kim Hock and Cheah Soon Kit are possible candidates to join the coaching setup.

    Wouldn't that be quite unlikely ? But I guess it depends on how much is the salary.

    While I do not make claims that you had it plain and smooth sailing overseas, I do however can claim that, you made the Right decision not to come back. Malaysia, besides its barrel of laughs with comedians Harith Iskandar, is ALSO a nuclear containment of 'don't know whether to laugh or cry' chronic situations and scenarios. While you had played in outdoor courts made out of inaccurate lines, I started playing at my own backyard with friends, or should I say, 'frolic playing' behind my kitchen alley, with nets tied up between windows opposite the next door neighbour while our shuttles fell into wet drains stinking of pollutants and we picked it up right after and continued playing. The situation of wet shuttles alleviated however, when I changed to playing plastic ones - I know, horribly unnatural flight but, it saves money.

    While Paulus is joining a country that is still reeling from the aftermath of a super typhoon, BAM's storm of stupendous 'disillusioned' management has been swirling for more than 15 years straight now.

    Imagine playing with those yoneyama rackets and still producing magic on court!
    Those earlier players are strong and fit but not so speedy with their rubber
    shoes!

    Today players are lucky to be assisted by amazing technologies.
    Talk about wooden rackets and rubberized shoes, I do still occasionally wear china's RM17 dragonfly shoes (used to be RM11 10 years ago). I saw Yang Yang wore them playing World Championships against Morten.
