Singing "We R The Chum Pians"

Saturday spent having a badminton tournament with inter-districts of Perak. One week before the tournament, we had a 4 days training in this Badminton Academy which is situated near north south highway, on the way going to Chemor. This academy is newly built specially for the state players... but of course,we r just kacang puteh players.. nowhere near Wong Mew Choo.. lol...

situated out of nowhere, this Badminton Academy...
