    Might count me in as well. Many thanks to our great Beijing organiser, Fengwei. Your presence with us definitely turned our Beijing trip from ordinary to extremely memorable and enjoyable. I wasn't expecting anything from this trip(mainly due to language barrier) other than watching Badminton matches but it turned out to be one of my most enjoyable holiday trip ever. All the best in your studies and hope you enjoy your brand new 1st Gen AT700. Oh, did you managed to your your Prada badminton shoe?

    Also, very nice meeting new and old friends, Loh (hey, when's our 3rd meet up huh? ;)), hcyong, ctjcad (thanks for organising the Badaling Great Wall trip and all the tickets), Seawell, Kemana(I will always remember your super high pitch cheerleading ability *respect*), Tarek aka Syaoran_style, Li De Quan (thanks for the XXZ's autograph), Ian aka Glasger (thanks for organising the baddy session in such a luxurious sport facility, wow), pjswift's friend-Jennifer(we initially thought you were pjswift) and Abby(didn't manage to talk to you). I hope I didn't miss anyone.

    Oh well, as I've said before, it was nothing. You were a great guy, and it was loads of fun touring through the city and watching badminton with you. Besides, I won't be forgetting the "Lao Beijing" lunch you had with Loh, Jason and Hyong :D Such a funny story, haha. And also, the times we went for lunch at the Korean Lamian place, in Dawanglu ;) Delicious!

    It was an honor, and may we meet again someday!

    You looked great, but sounded horrible! I can't bear the sound of something like "Heyaaaamungo" and "Go KOREA" :D

    Next time, when I come to Beijing, I'll promise to play badminton with you. :)

    Mist can easily disappear, but smog couldn't.

    All in the air..

    ...mist....haze....smog....vapor....fog....dew....you name it, you got it; i think all were in the air/picture...For sure, if one didn't see it, sure one did breathe it...;)
    However, on the last weekend of the badminton event, the sky and air cleared thanks to the continuous rain and breeze..:cool:

    Another picture of the inside of the subway. Picture just can't describe how fun it was to get sandwiched in between those passengers....Even best is if there wasn't any air condition in the train..:p[​IMG]

    The crowd at the Badaling Great Wall....and that's only a small percentage on that day...:p

    The Olympics' mascots (L to R): Beibei, Jingjing, Huanhuan, Yingying and Nini
    Looking at their pose, i think they were expecting people to come and give 'em a big hug. Too bad we BCers didn't get a chance to take a pic or play around with those mascots...
