    Dave, as you know, we had little time left. So as suggested by Daniel (zzaarr), we all adjourned to the nearby Bedok Food Centre, a typical public housing estate centre that has many hawker stalls selling a great variety of food. Kwun, as he has disclosed, joined others to take char kway teow, Singapore style, quite different from the Malaysian varities and probably had sugar cane juice for drinks.

    After the quarter finals, kwun, chan and I went to the Old Airport Food Centre, which is located near to the SIS, for dinner. There we ate satay and small oysters fried in flour.

    And yesterday evening, after the Finals, Chan and I went back to Old Airport Road and patronized the relatively new food court adjacent to the old food centre. Chan ordered his favourite fish head curry (which he had on the first day he joined me to play a Bukit Gombak Sports Hall) and chilly crab (which he has not tasted before) and a bottle of Calsberg beer. He made sure he enjoyed his last dinner in Singapore before he departs for KL this morning.

    Here are other pics taken at Bedok Food Centre, with Kit, Kwun, Chan, Mongoose and David at the same table. And some more pics with Kwun and others in action during the Fun Games.

    Kwun,

    Did you invite Chen & Gao to join the BC family like Jonas & Thomas?

    Those who could make it (in bracket).

    Thank you all who could join us at the Fun Games and make it an historic success. For those who can't, I hope that we will have another chance to meet and play badminton. ;)

    Special thanks to BF'ers who assisted with your contribution of shuttles, for sharing your knowledge, your transport and for your patience, co-operation and understanding. Everything went on smoothly despite the fact that most of us met for the first time. And our overseas guests did up proud by turning up punctually and engaging us in active badminton. :)

    Of course, it would not be that smooth-sailing without the assistance of Stephanie from the Singapore Sports Council, to whom I have emailed our expression of thanks.

    Till we meet again... :crying: :crying: :crying:

    Looking at the lunch pic at Bedok Market really brings back memories for me. It's one of my many childhood hangouts:). Great pics, guys! Keep'em coming!

    Doh, forgive me but wasn't Zhang Jie Wen sitting in the next row in front?

    You could have communicated with her no problem.;)
    Err,on second thoughts, with your mom and Janet around, perhaps your tactics in approaching the 'couple' rather than the 'single lady' were correct after all!

    The guy in front, second from the right - I didn't know Lee Chong Wei joined you all! :)
    (I assume that's Unregistered-dono).

    I think the BFers from Jurong East, represented by their convenor Jeffreyk, can also testify that Mongoose is also a very good player, crafty with his wrist. ;) Mongoose must now be quite a satisfied man as he was 'escorted 'by someone special during the SO semi finals! :)

    Of course you can recognize Kwun who is the tallest.! But somebody in the pic must have some resemblance to my face for I wasn't in this pic! ;) This pic was taken by hdson as I was still trying to adjust my camera and tripod and requesting the front guys to hold the banner neater, ie, pull it up as straight as possible. And when my timer wasn't working as it should, I had to catch hold of another non-BFer player to snap the group photo for us. :)

    Try again on the other group pic with all 17 of us present. :D

    Who do u think was the "best" player at the BC fun games?

    Who do u think was the "best" player at the BC fun games?

    Since there was no official mini tournament at the games as originally planned , hehe, just some comments :)

    1. Kwun has a nice whippy backhand clear, haha!!! wish i had one as good as his :) he also has an accurate crosscourt drop shot

    2. explorer123 is one very fit all-rounded player, as Loh mentioned

    3. Jeffreyk, hcyong, zzarr, daviddoff are all power players

    4. Mongoose is more of a finesse player

    5. Poseidonlee has a deadly swift crosscourt smash return

    6. Loh and the rest, i never got to really see much coz i was playing at that time.

    7. Crazy_smasher is not a crazy smasher :)

    Maybe next time, can have an official tournament :)

    Not bad at all!

    But what will our friends from Vancouver think? Or for that matter, our friends from China, or at least ex-China - those who once hailed from China like LB. Cheung will have none of it either. Our guys from Down Under and NZ will not forgive you for omitting them as well, so will our friends from India. ;)

    I think you are putting too much on Mag's shoulders, expecting him to carry the whole of Europe! Maybe someone from Denmark or UK can share his burden??? :D

    And to give yourself two byes, my, my, we have not noticed that Malaysia has a superstar until now. Two byes?? Unheard of!!! :) Maybe ants care to confirm or perhaps Hamz can add a word or two?

    So when can we meet and have it out? Preparations needed. :D
