Thomas Cup Semi Final Result – Malaysia vs China 3 – 2
Malaysia Lost!

Lee Chong Wei and our second double Zakry Abdul Latif Mohd and Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari Mohddid a great job! They both beat Zhongbo Xie and Zhendong Guo in straight set. 17-21, 15-21. I was disappointed with Koo Kian Keat / Tan Boon Heong double pair and Hafiz Hashim too. They should score a point for Malaysia. Once again after 16years Malaysai still cannot get back the Thomas Cup =(

Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari and Mohd Zakry were short in comparison to the towering Xie Zhongbo and Guo Zhengdong.

Hafiz Hashim Lost to Chen Jin

I purposely took leave to watch this 4years once Thomas Cup and support Malaysia but it really disappoint me. Hafiz Hashim should have perform much better, he was leading in both games but in the end he lost concentration and focus. He should run more and play seriously. I feel like he was slacking and just play for fun! That’s bad!

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.”
