Lee Chong Wei wins badminton Korean Open crown

Badminton is one sport that Malaysia excels in in the world arena. The other sport that puts Malaysia on the world stage is squash. Nicol David is World No. 1. She recently won her 7th World Open title on December 21 in Cayman Islands.


On Sunday (yesterday), Malaysian shuttler, World No.1 Lee Chong Wei defeated China's Du Pengyu 21-12, 21-25 (in 42 minutes) to win the men's singles title in the US$1mil Korean Open in Seoul.


At the BWF’s World Super Series Finals in Shenzhen, China, last month, Pengyu defeated Chong Wei. So this win is sort of a sweet revenge for the good Datuk.

Update:
The victory was worth US$75,000 (RM226,000) and Chong Wei will approach the Malaysia Open, which begins at Putra Stadium tomorrow, brimming with confidence. He will seeking a record-breaking ninth title at home.

Chong Wei is tied with badminton legend Wong Peng Soon winning eight men's singles titles each.

  5. Hi HappySurfer as promised to give you the full detail of HGH Convention Center in Sentul after attending the wedding dinner last night. Sad to say many don't know the answer as napkin only show HGH, including the menu, brochures and waiters & waitresses tag only have HGH. Our best guess its the name of a person and very likely stands for Hwang Gxx Hai based on the Chinese characters on the hall according to sweetie Mango. Nice place to hold wedding function with great lightings & audio system. Best is no pillars at all and ample car parks can fit 60-70 tables comfortably. The last luncheon function we went was too cramped with 100 over tables.

    1. Bananaz, thanks so much for the update and the extra info. Yes, a pillarless hall is a plus for functions.

      The HGH I know of is Human Growth Hormones in relation to health. :D
