All Malaysian double pairs lost in Malaysia Open 2008. Hope the men single Lee Chong Wei and women single Wong Mew Choo will make it. Hope the fighting spirit is still there.
I really can’t believe that Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong lost in our home ground again after their defeat last year in the same venue, Bukit Jalil. Feel kinda sad.
Unbelievable: Denmark’s Lars Paaske-Jonas Rasmussen celebrate their win over Malaysia’s Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong during the second round of the Malaysian Open. The Danish pair won 21-19, 18-21, 21-16.
Kien Keat had to run all over the court to do most of the work and the Danish pair, world champions in 2003, capitalised on it by targeting Boon Heong in the rubber game.
The signs were already there when the world number one pair struggled to beat third-ranked Indonesians Hendra Gunawan-Joko Riyadi in their opening match on Wednesday.
And their worst fears came true when they crashed 19-21, 21-18, 16-21 to former world champions Lars Paaske-Jonas Rasmussen of Denmark in the second round.
This is the second successive time that they have failed to make it past the early rounds of a Super Series tournament. Kien Keat-Boon Heong lost to Taiwans Tsai Chia-hsin-Hu Chung-shien in the second round of the China Open last November.
This time, Boon Heong proved to be the weak link and it was no surprise to see the Danish pair going on to claim victory in 59 minutes.
Boon Heong committed numerous unforced errors in the rubber game to allow the veteran Danish pair to come back from 11-14 down and seal victory.
Kien Keat-Boon Heong had beaten the Danish pair twice before and yesterdays defeat in their home Open was painful indeed, especially when they had high hopes of making a good start to their campaign for the year.
Despite the unexpected early defeat, doubles coach Rexy Mainaky chose not to blast the Malaysian pair for their poor display, saying they are still the main hope for the Beijing Olympics in August.
This defeat in the Malaysian Open should not be used as the only yardstick to judge them.
Our priority is still the Olympics and I believe they are good for the title there, said Rexy, who also pleaded for support for the pair.
We have to understand that no athlete can stay on the winning trail all the time. The pair have been performing well for some time and its more important for them to learn from this and come back stronger. read more
Defeat a blessing in disguise for Kien Keat-Boon Heong so that they will keep on improving till Olympic in the August this year. Hope they can make it then! All the best Malaysia and Malaysia Boleh! But because of this Rexy want to quit and leave the national doubles coach of the Malaysian team.
I just do not know what else to do. Now, I just do not feel like coaching.
Rexy said that he had hit breaking point and could not wait until the Beijing Olympic Games to tender his resignation.
I do not want to wait until the Beijing Olympic Games. This is it I cannot coach anymore. I will inform the BAM (Badminton Association of Malaysia) officials when I meet them today (yesterday), he said.
No, I am not changing my mind. This is my decision. It is final.
If he really quit and I would say it’s a lost for Malaysia and feel sad because Olympic is 7months down the road and we will lost a good and capable couch. Rexy, please stay and I’m sure the double team will strive for their best and keep improving. Do not resign my dear Rexy.
I’m going there to watch Semi Final Tomorrow. Hope Lee Chong Wei and Wong Mew Choo will make it and beat China.

This time the victim is five-year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar who disappeared while playing about 200m from her house in Taman Dato Harun on Wednesday.
Please take good care of your children and don’t let any culprit got chance. Please…!!! Don’t let your children be the next victim.
Sharlinie is missing… If you see her please contact police
Those with information on Sharlinie’s whereabouts could contact her father Mohd Nashar Mat Hussain at 016-258 3450 / 016-270 9096
or police at 03-7966 2222
or Rakan Cop at 03-2115 9999.
Have you seen this man? This is the photofit of the possible molester which connected to the case.
PETALING JAYA: Another girl has gone missing. This time the victim is five-year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar who disappeared while playing about 200m from her house in Taman Dato Harun on Wednesday.
Missing: Mohd Nashar holding Sharlinie’s picture as Suraya and Sharliena look on at their home in Taman Dato Harun, Petaling Jaya, on Wednesday.
Police are not ruling out the possibility that the “Kampung Baru molester” ” the man responsible for the cruel killing of Nurin Jazlin Jazimin ” could have abducted Sharlinie, the second to be reported missing in the Taman Medan area in two days.
On Monday, a six-year-old girl was abducted by a man on a motorcycle when she was playing alone near her flats in Kampung Sepakat, Taman Medan, about 2km from where Sharlinie went missing. The girl was found three hours later in Wangsa Maju in Setapak.
Police do not rule out that the Kampung Baru molester is involved in the case. In the 11am incident Wednesday, Sharlinie had followed her sister Sharliena, eight, to a playground about 200m from their double-storey link house in PJS 2. Half an hour later, Sharliena decided to return home but Sharlinie did not respond when she called out to her.
Sharliena rushed home to inform her mother, Suraya Ahmad, 28, who went to the playground to search for Sharlinie. About two hours later, Suraya lodged a police report at the district police headquarters. Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed said Sharlinie was last seen wearing a light blue dress with white stripes and pink slippers.
“Anyone who has seen this child at the playground or its vicinity must contact us immediately. She is just over 1m tall, about 20kg in weight, has short hair and a tanned complexion.
“We have formed a task force to find Sharlinie and our focus is to locate her. The incident is similar to the case of the six-year-old girl who went missing on Monday,” he said.
Sharlinie’s father, Mohd Nashar Mat Hussain, 29, said he hoped his daughter would be found as soon as possible.
“I appeal to the public to help find her before anything untoward happens to her. I am sure someone would have noticed the two kids playing there,” he said.
Join effot in searching Sharlinie Mohd Nashar from Suria FM with hourly update on the case.
KUALA LUMPUR: Suria FM has joined in the efforts to locate missing five-year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar.
Chief executive officer Engku Emran Engku Zainal Abidin said the Bahasa Malaysia radio station would give hourly updates on the little girl.
“Everyone should take part in the search to help the police. We hope Suria FM listeners will help to look for the girl.
“We will continue to make the hourly announcement until she is found,” he said Thursday.
Engku Emran said the radio station would also distribute 500 copies of Sharlinie’s photograph and include printed with the Rakan Cop and police operations room numbers via its on-the-road promotion crew Suria Wheel every day.
“We will also post the girl’s picture on our website,” he said.
He said listeners who wanted the latest news on the search of Sharlinie should tune in to Suria FM at 105.3 in the Klang Valley or visit its website at www.suriafm.com.my.

First, there were Lucky and Flo. Now, we have Paddy and Manny, two sniffer dogs from Ireland who are set to send shivers down the spine of optical disc pirates. So this time see how good is these Paddy and Manny dogs will be! They will be arriving next month.
SEPANG: The canine-assisted war on DVD and CD pirates will resume in February when Paddy and Manny, two Labrador Retrievers that will take over from where Lucky and Flo left off, arrive here.
Like Lucky and Flo, these two canines are trained to sniff out the presence of polycarbonate and other chemicals in optical discs.
Deputy Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk S. Veerasingam said the canine anti-piracy unit under its enforcement division would be mobilised immediately upon the dogs arrival.
The seven enforcement officers in the unit are in the process of being trained. Our stint with Lucky and Flo has been very successful in sniffing out pirated discs.
Well done: The ministry’s K-9 unit with their dogs and police trainers after a training stint at the Sepang police station Tuesday.
This is the first canine unit in the world set up to combat piracy. I hope this will show Malaysias creativity and seriousness in weeding out pirated discs from our shops, he said after handing over certificates of completion to the officers at the police K-9 training unit yesterday.
The two male dogs born and bred in Ireland like their predecessors are a contribution from the Asia-Pacific Motion Pictures Association.
In the period between Jan 1 and Dec 2 this year, authorities conducted checks on 57,747 premises resulting in 2,420 court cases. We have closed down 19 factories (producing pirated discs) that were operating without licences.
We also seize 2.3 million pieces of pirated discs, and property worth RM54mil, he said.
Bukit Aman deputy director of strategic planning SAC I Datuk Nooryah Mohd Anvar said there were plans to expand the current K-9 unit with the establishment of new divisions in other states.
At present, we have 115 dogs stationed at the KLIA, Bukit Aman and 18 other places. We are thinking of stationing dogs in places like Labuan and Langkawi. Some bigger states like Sabah, Sarawak and Perak may get additional dogs, she said.
New dog is coming, don’t let the dog sniff you, if not you will be in jail!
