    Thank you to all those of you who have supported us and are looking forward to seeing Bintang5 in Milpitas. This has been a long project for us, which we started back in 2009 (and finally convinced the landlord in Feb 2010). However, it is not yet there. As Kwun had posted, the City Council did unanimously approve of our project on August 25, 2010 despite the "comment letter" from "the other badminton facility in the city". But there is a 12 day appeal period, and not to our surprise, "the other badminton facility in the city" filed an appeal. So the City Council will again have to meet to review this appeal and then make a final decision.

    We will update everyone as soon as we have more news! Thank you again for your support. Phu's elbow is out of the support now but he still needs to wear a brace. He will be back on the courts soon... :]
