I'm me.
. Pretty much an extremist.
It's 2010, so..18 years old. I secretly suspect that I have Korean blood. :) I just take life as it comes, improvising along the way. Oh yeah I like the colour yellow. Its bright. :D


I want.

World yellowsisation.


Yellow time!

Shake your bom bom!

I seriously wonder whats the problem with blogspot these days. I think it hates me. :x All the pictures I upload double up. So annoying. But I have to salute blogspot, they have this autosave thing, which is super useful. I always see other people complaining on their blogs about how their whole long post just went POOF many times because the accidentally pressed the wrong button or something. With autosave, your posts are automatically saved everytime you stop typing for a while. Once, I wrote a long post and accidentally cancelled the whole page. I felt like screaming but came back and checked and saw my post in the draft column. Thank youu blogspot! :)

Oh yeah theres this badminton player from Indonesia whos name is Taufiq Hidayat Akbar. o.o And no, he is not the Olympic gold medallist Taufik Hidayat.

How queer. :/

Laaaaaaaaaaast...month? No, I think a few weeks ago, there was this Olympic test tournament. It was, of course, held in the 2008 Olympic stadium in Beijing. Only one foreign player participated. There were supposed to be a few other foreign players, but all of them withdrew because they wanted to prepare themselves for the Denmark Open, which offers Olympic qualifying points, unlike that Olympic test tournament.

The whole of China's national team had to take part, including all the top players. The players said that the facilities and everything were very good.

This is the 2008 Olympic badminton stadium.

Omg Haifeng's shirt is so...cute. It's ugly, but adorable. Reaaaaally! I like it and yet, I dont like it... O.o Yellow is China's signature colour. (Which is one more extra reason for me to support 'em :p) But recently Malaysia had a new shirt made for their players for the World Championships and it had a...not so pleasant design. Aiyah, Malaysia's shirt always has a "Proton" sign, which makes it ugly already. China has FedEx, which looks better.

Inside. Big big place. Normally, that means the draft would be quite strong. Plus, when the Olympics are on, it should be autumn? I think... Which means that there would be quite a lot of problems for the players. Unless they can get used to it. Big stadiums generally look better lah. The stadium where the Indonesia Open was held was so small and dingy. Yerr.

I think there are not that many seats. Capacity quite low. The stage is huge though!

Now your feet can feel comfortable too! :)
Big big big.

The outside looks nice too. Many stadiums do not look nice on the outside.

Everything set up, ready for the Olympic test tournament.
They also introduced some modern technology. Actually I dont know if you can call it "technology", but anyway! This is a clock, to show the duration of the match. I know tennis matches use these already, but badminton tournaments dont use these yet, so they are quite new.
Oooh! This is the coolest thing ever! You know how normally, during badminton matches, the service judge would be the one who gives shuttlecocks to players and receive the used shuttlecocks? With this..erm..machine(?!), there would be no need for service judges to do that anymore. Many shuttlecocks would be placed inside this machine and when the player needs a new shuttlecock, they would just have to press a button and a new shuttlecock would fly out. :D So cool! Buuut, I think it still doesnt function well so it hasnt been used....yet!

First time I've seen an African play badminton. Dutch Open 2007.

XieXingfang during the Macau Open 2007.

LinDan didnt participate in the Macau Open so she was alone. Hahahahaha.
Kumiko Ogura & Reiko Shiota of Japan. Women double partners. They are quite good but their just not good enough to beat the Chinese pairs. They got a bronze medal during this year's World Championships.

BaoChunlai. Baoooo, every girl's favourite guy. Lols.

Xingfang during the mooncake festival this year.


LinDan celebrated his 24th birthday on the 14th of Oct. Being the ultimate "CaoJiDan"/ "SuperDan", of course he had to have a huge celebration.

Always fashionable. I think men in China dress better than Chinese guys in Malaysia. When I say better it doesnt necessarily mean that they look better or anything, I just mean that they wear more fashionable clothes.
Look at the backdrop! :O

Awwwwwwwww. Being the sweetest couple in the world, they had to wear matching outfits! :p

Xingfang signing the backdrop.

Birthday boy signing.

That little heart is so cute!

LinDan's gang.

Socialites. So cool. When I see the word "socialite", I normally think of Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie. These people should be almost the same, just not so bitchy?

Playin a game...I think.

Awwwwwww. :D
