    Yup. Thanks for asking.

    Just cheap tickets tomorrow and also friend help me with Saturday.

    Guess what - I was really stupid. I looked at the booking website on my phone. I thought you needed a Malaysian phone number so decided to wait until I got one. Then booking it tonight on ipad I suddenly realised that overseas number is OK - aargh.

    I saw the match and the Danish pair were playing really well but Yuta slipping in the tail end of the third game really made him play conservatively in the final few rallies. It's apparent he was trying not to slip and fall again or get injured due to some slip. Also, the usual mistakes from Arisa. What a premature exit damn.

    Can you let me know if they do any covid checks if you happen to be there tomorrow?

    I am planning to go next week for the masters but if they are checking apps or anything I may need to plan or even considering not going.

    Thanks

    I dunno.
    For me arisa is one of the best female mixed doubles player you can get.

    There are very few mixed doubles players who are actually on par with the men.

    At least she can smash, take smashes and return shots decently unlike most.

    Actually what happened to the Korean mixed doubles?

    She's very fast, which is what I tend to see most XD women lack. This means that she can kill well at the front. Her defense has also improved significantly since last year, where she was unable to take consecutive smashes well.

    But I still believe that her defense must become even better in order to compete even better against the likes of Popor/Bass, HYQ/ZSW, and HDP/WLY.

    In my (subjective) opinion, a lot of the XD women are quite lacking. Off the top of my head, I can only rate HDP, HYQ, Matsutomo, and Popor ahead of her.

    Good to know you are watching in the stadium. Probably with your high spec camera and on Friday you get to watch LZJ vs NKL or KM.

    So you will need to quarantine 5 days in hotel and 2 days at home when you go back to HK.

    MAS has done away with check-ins via hp apps.

    But for on site test of Covid-19 with high volume, I don't know. Cheung or other members should be able to assist.

    Ok. Will do.

    So far I haven’t used the MySejahtera app at all since arriving in Malaysia and that includes immigration at KLIA. At KLIA, it seems to be quite variable about the checks as the day my relative arrived, they seemed to be very diligent about checking the app.


    Didn’t bring the camera. Too heavy. Unfortunately, this trip is not a photography trip.

    Unfortunately, hk is still 7 days hotel quarantine at the moment though I don’t know why. The logic of having any quarantine has passed.

    With the new Chief Executive sworn in tomorrow, heard that there will be some relaxation in quarantine requirements.
