“When were leading 18-14 in the second after winning the first set (21-17) we fell into the Chinese trap.” – Wong Pei Tty (Malaysia)

“Their speed (Wong Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui) on court has improved a lot. This pair can go far in their badminton career.” – Yang Wei (China)

“I played a better game yesterday (against Yip Pui Yin) when I managed to control the match. Today (against Wang Chen), even when I was leading I put myself under unnecessary pressure.” – Lydia Cheah (Malaysia)

“(Lee) Chong Wei is a good player. However, he was in a hurry to get the points in the second set and I took advantage of that. My next tournament is the Korean Open and my target is to be the champion,” – Simon Santoso (Indonesia) after his 21-15, 16-21, 21-11 defeat to the Malaysian

“I don’t know why but it has been like that. I play well in one set and badly in the next against Zhou Mi. I could only match her in fitness…I lacked in all other aspects of the game against Zhou Mi. This is my fourth straight defeat to her.” – Julia Wong (Malaysia)

“He (Liew Daren) is a talented young player. You will be seeing and hearing a lot of him in the future.” – Peter Gade Christensen (Denmark) after his 21-12, 21-14 win over the Malaysian in the quarter-finals

“It is still too early to say about Shevon Lai Jimie. It will also depend on her own commitment and desire to be a top player in badminton.” – Malaysia team manager Hau Kim Tho on the junior national player

“I will be ready to be a professional badminton player if I can hit it off in the sport although I aim to be a veterinarian. I love animals and have a soft spot for them.” – Shevon Lai Jimie (Malaysia)

“His defence and speed has improved. I gave up the second set and concentrated on the third set. I was confident of winning the match. My last two wins were done in three sets but my fitness is okay.” – Datuk Lee Chong Wei (Malaysia)


Lee Chong Wei (Malaysia): “Simon is an aggressive player and he went all out today. This is his first tournament after a long while and I feel he has improved tremendously in his defence and fitness.”

Simon Santoso (Indonesia): “It was a close match but luck was not with me today. Despite losing to ChongWei today, I am still confident of winning next week’s Korean Open.
“I had a great chance to upset the world No. 1 but let it slip. It was a good lesson for me.”

Liew Daren (Malaysia): “I was pretty nervous today, even when I was leading 9-3 in the first game. I still have much to do to catch up with the top players but I have got a lot of confidence after reaching the quarter-finals and playing against the top players.”

Peter Gade (Denmark): “Daren is quite a good player but he is still lacking the physical strength. He has good attacking play and is one to watch in the future.”

Sony Dwi Kuncoro (Indonesia): “I underestimated my opponent today and paid the price. I am quite surprised with his progress. I had no answer to his play today.”

Hsieh Yu Hsin (Taiwan): “Sony was not his usual self today. I don’t know what happened but he didn’t play as well as I know he can.”

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
