Datuk Lee Chong Wei bringing 2 personal cooks to Badminton World Championships!

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009 4,069 views

Wow, can you believe it or not, Datuk Lee Chong Wei bringing along 2 personal cooks to prepare meals for him when he competes in the World Championships next month in India. So this time round he has not excuses to say food poisoning or sick or whatsoever just do your best and get the champion and make Malaysia proud of you, World No. 1!

World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei need not fear food poisoning again

KUALA LUMPUR: World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei should not worry about having a repeat of a food poisoning episode in India when he competes in the World Championships.

Two cooks will accompany the Malaysian team for the championships, which will be held in Hyderabad from Aug 10-16.

In fact, the Malaysia team will stay at an apartment just 15 minutes away from the venue, the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium, instead of the official hotel to enable the cooks to prepare the food.

The cooks made a visit to Hyderabad recently to ensure that all the facilities and kitchen utensils would be at place when they make a return with the team for the championships.

Lee Chong Wei
Healthy eating assured: Lee Chong Wei will have the services of two Malaysian cooks in Hyderabad during the World Championships.

The Badminton Association of Malaysia’s (BAM) general manager, Kenny Goh, said that they were leaving no stones unturned to ensure that all was well with the players when they compete in Hyderabad.

At the India Open at the same venue in April, Chong Wei suffered food poisoning after consuming food from outside the hotel. It resulted in a first-round defeat by Chen Long of China.

“The World Championships are important for us and we are making sure that all areas of preparation are looked into,” said Kenny.

“We are not staying in the official hotel with the players from other countries. We have decided to stay in an apartment to allow our cooks to prepare food for our players, coaches and support team.”

The other support team members in the Malaysian squad include physical trainers, a psychologist, nutritionist and sports code expert.

The Malaysian team, bidding to win their first-ever world championship title, will leave for Hyderabad on Aug 8.

Chong Wei is now in Seoul for a 10-day training stint under Li Mao and Misbun Sidek.

衛蘭臨時哮喘病發及血糖急降入院,無法親自上場考驗新秀的和音功力,突如其來的改變也考驗了新秀的實力。

衛蘭早在上場前已感呼吸困難,加上上場前5分鐘現場放煙花,情況加劇,不過她為不讓大家失望,只好硬撐上場。

然而,衛蘭在演唱《陰天假期》及說話時已顯得有氣無力,並且無法站穩腳步,最終因無法再支撐下去而離場,並被安排入院接受治療。

Sunday, July 26th, 2009 4,030 views

It’s very sad that a very good local director left us, I love her movie Sepet very much. We will not have good short films and no more nice Chinese New Year clips which is meaningful. Hope she rest in peace.

Yasmin Ahmad dies

KUALA LUMPUR, July 26 —Renowned film and advertising director Yasmin Ahmad died here at about 11.25 pm last night.

Her death was confirmed by Media Prime Group Chief Operations Officer Datuk Seri Ahmad Farid Ridzuan, who was at the Damansara Specialist Hospital, when contacted by Bernama.

Yasmin, 51, collapsed while presenting a working paper at Sri Pentas, the headquarters of the private television station TV3 on Thursday and was rushed to the Damnsara Specialists Hospital.

KUALA LUMPUR: Award-winning film director Yasmin Ahmad (pic) has died from massive bleeding in the brain at the Damansara Specialist Hospital.

She died at 11.25pm yesterday. She had undergone surgery following her collapse at the TV3 headquarters Seri Pentas on Thursday.

Yasmin Ahmad

The 51-year-old movie maker was famed for her advertisements and films capturing the essence of racial harmony in Malaysia.

Relatives, loved ones and a large group of luminaries from the local movie and television scene gathered at the hospital the moment they heard about her death.

Among the first to arrive were veteran actress Fatimah Abu Bakar – a close friend of Yasmin – and Media Prima International CEO Datuk Seri Farid Ridzuan.

Although distraught, those present paid tribute to the award-winning director.

“We would come cross a few great people in our time on earth. Yasmin was one of them.

“She wasn’t an easy person to live or work with, but that was only because she was so talented.

“She had a big heart and vision that we usually don’t understand. That was why people misunderstood her. But she never intended any malice,” said Fatimah.

She added Yasmin’s films had always been about love and forgiveness because that was the way her parents brought her up.

Fatimah’s daughter, Sharifah Amani, who acted in Yasmin’s films, was too distraught as she stood by at her mother’s side.

She refused to talk to the press.

Fatimah and Farid acted as the spokespersons for Yasmin’s family to announce her death and details of her funeral.

TV host Aznil Nawawi, said he had always admired Yasmin’s work although he never had a chance to work with her.

“She possessed the knack on how to capture the essence of Malaysia through her movies and commercials.

“I last saw her when she was promoting her movie Talentime at the Radio Era office,” he added.

Suria FM chief executive officer Engku Imran Engku Zainal Abidin described Yasmin’s death as a great loss – not only to the entertainment and movie industry, but to the nation as a whole.

“Her movies are watched by all races because they can all relate to the messages conveyed.

“We have lost a great, intelligent and creative director,” he added.

Yasmin will be buried after Zohor prayers today, although at press time the location of the burial has yet to be determined.

Fatimah said Yasmin’s body would be taken to the SS19 Mosque in Subang Jaya for prayers.
