    And Badmania should be Manager/Spokesman for Kido/Setiawan. Anybody wants biodata, career history,press release, photos, etc of Kido/Setiawan must go thru Badmania.

    Anybody trying to simply badmouth Kido/Setiawan will see Badmania really going maniac. Kido/Setiawan's career after retirement will be well taken care of with endorsements of tongkat ali, Indonesian herbs, badminton lessons.

    You should really seriously consider it. Life evolves around Kido/Setiawan nowadays.

    Not forgeting, fan website, with Kwun, Cheung and gang's help.
    Write-ups are not that hard to do, you know English, B. Indonesia & Chinese, write in all three.

    [Try this story :
    For there is a time, the mighty mouse, mighty pillar & friend, made their travels round the world. Everyone thought -"Ha, small mouse, plump somemore, what can he do?" Then the mouse charged, jumped, smashed the daylights outa them. Small mouse became mighty mouse.
    Then they saw a tall, skinny one and thought "Ha, thin like a stick, no expression, no passion, also no use-lah." Then skinny sticky one jabbed, kung-fu-ed them when they least expect it. When they tried to attack close range, he takwando-ed back. Skinny sticky became mighty pillar.

    Then they saw the friend, always faithful, declaring, one day small mouse & skinny sticky will become great, please believe in them, amidst jeers from all. Now friend has become friend of mighty mouse & mighty pillar, the insightful friend, with vision.]


    That only took 10 minutes, I'm sure you can do better, or ask Oldhand's help. Of course 'mighty mouse' was a nickname somebody else already thought of, I just borrowed it.

    Cheung did get a chance to take a photo with it though, along with Fairuz's broken racket.

    After seeing Cheung delightedly hold them up, I've been checking the Buy & Sell threads for one that goes:
    "Save, save, save... yours for just half the price"
    "Broken celebrity racquets for immediate sale" :D
