Weather was very nice today! The venue is a well known event arena in Hong Kong (Coliseum) which looks like an inverted pyramid. Next to the venue is the main railway terminus with trains going up into China. Just a bit of a further walk away is a shopping mall. There is a food court there where practically all the players go to have food. Typically, Hong Kong style is to never to be too far away from food! The sponsors of the Superseries, Metlife, also have a stand here. I must confess, I never really heard of Metlife before they started sponsoring the Superseries. After visiting the stand, I found out that they are an American insurance company offering various insurance products. The other thing is they signed up with the characters from Peanuts to be used in advertising. So, now you know why Snoopy is given to the winners of the Superseries and not Ironman.. At considerably less effort than to win a super series, members of the public were able win some prizes by little game of hitting the shuttlecock through Snoopy's racquet - a task made harder with the breeze around. The podium looks a bit sparse but it is only qualifiers today.
