Hey...Good.

I used to play every weekend until my sifu find its not economy to carry on at a one-to-one student. And that was about a year ago.

Those days, my usual venue is at the Pudu plaza until then the management converted the whole place to badminton court.

We need to find a good court....The one at lake tmn shamlin is good

Yes, I am keen.........

I am almost a recovered watchaholic, but last checked shows only 70% recovered. How?

the KTS is legendary among fast blades. this is the newer version. the old version is even more sought after. a fast blade will have the ability to rebound balls faster but will also mean that the user will have greater difficulty in controlling incoming balls.

wah.... This is good.

I started playing pingpong at 10. a school player when i was 11 & 12.
when i'm 13, met a good coach, a ex national player, he trained me n others 3 times a week. 3 hours a session!
Plenty of good facilities.... the coach also a chief in N.Sembilan Ping Pong Association, so we are using the state facilities.
become a district player when i was 14 & 15 yrs old.

sadly my coach promoted to b a headmaster for another secondary school...
no coach, no facility.......
so at 15 yrs old, i switched to play badminton....

i used to see my friends from Kedah to play at pudu plaza also.....

Hello ck77,
Where do you stay? I am located in Puchong (Bdr Kinrara to be exact). I play at Star Elite TT Centre in Puchong Jaya. They have 5 tables there.

David,
On the other side of Pudu, near Tmn Miharja, there is a table tennis shop called Gold MEdal Sports own by Mr Ling, a former nat. player from Sarawak. Mr Ling also rent out tables (I think there were at least 3 or 4 tables there). I believe the Taman Miharja condo/apartment also have people played there.

Lanatir,
That is a "mean" piece of kiso-hinoki you have there. Where and when do you normally play? Maybe I will "pai sifu" to you when we have the chance to play together. 

Cheers.

I am looking for place & partner/s to play TT.

The venue by Mr Ling was at one time at U-3 but its an open court.
A quash court should be ideal / an enclosed area.

I would be very much to join you - if that is a public court (if its a private, then its another story)

BTW, I stayed in Subang Jaya...

Please do tell me more. PM where necessary.

The pleasure is mine, David.
Well, at least I learn a wee bit something about watch collection as a hobby. Also have a first hand chance to feel the AK and the poljot(hope the spelling is correct) and it has been a wonderful evening listening to your explanation about watches.

Thank you for your time.
