I remember watching Thomas Cup years ago telecasted live from TV with both my housemates, Nabil and Jan. We screamed our lungs out and at that moment, I made a vow to myself that, if by any chance, I would want to be there to watch a live badminton match.
Since I was on long vacation, I made a trip to watch the Round 2 matches of World Championships @Putra Stadium.
We got ourselves ticket at rm18 each. Cheap, worth for a whole day.
Soon, we went over a KFC meals-on-wheel and brought some chickens to eat inside the hall. Yes, they allow us to do so. Don’t you think it’s a bit weird to lick our fingers while watching a world prestige game show?

taufik, he’s adorable!
Taufik lost the game. But he was cool with it. He threw his racquet towards the spectators as “gift”. Even till today, I still hope that I was lucky enuf to grab it.
