    From sina.com.cn:

    昨日,中国羽毛球队离开集训地福建晋江前往马来西亚参加亚锦赛。不过与报名时有所出入,国家队只派出了男单和混双项目的主力,此前报名参赛的谢杏芳、张宁等人都放弃了比赛。

    Team China had departed the training camp at Fujian province on Sunday. However, only the Men's Singles and Mixed Doubles players flew to Johor. The Women's Singles and Doubles players who were originally listed in the entry had all withdrawn! I think Guo Zhendong also didn't join the team so that Xie Zhongbo can be focused on qualification for the Beijing Olympics.

    Err, change of accommodation plans. Reason - got a better deal. :)

    Will be staying in Pulai Springs Resort instead (an equally in-country resort similar to Sofitel). At least it's closer, just beside UTM Skudai but still way off JB City.

    Loh and Yong, sure you want to brave the jam and go back home "overseas" after the semis?

    Nope,their name is still IN at WD drawing as top-seed. Based on badMania translation from sina.com.cn, it's true Guo/Xie plus Zhu Lin and Lu Lan didn't participate this tournament.

    That was Sakamoto/Ikeda and Othsuka/Masuda. This is.... I've never heard of this Japanese pair. Then again, it might be the Taiwanese pair winning in 1st round ;)

    For your information that they are very strict with photo taking as you can take but no flash. Especially during matches.
