    We R Sneaky

    On my last day of primary school, they had a sports day. They set up a badminton net complete with raquets and shuttles in the hall. They said it was out of bounds for children and that everyone should just stay away. Honestly, if teachers are supposed to be smart, why do they...

    I Play For Fun

    I play in a weekly badminton group. There is no real teams everyone just shows once or twice a week at night and plays for a couple of hours. It keeps me busy and active.

    Muscle Memory

    Two hours of hard badminton after nearly a year off. I played from memory, run myself into the ground, won my share.  Now I'm aching and sore.It's wonderful.  Having pains that I actually know why I've got them.

    Left And Tall

    My Love

    My favourite sports are football, volleyball and badminton. I'm quite good in football, though I'm a very aggressive player - I want to kick everyone out of my way :D and I'm lucky if my kick is a straight one and I kick the ball where I want :D. I'm so bad in volleyball. Gosh...
