    Err, last time around, you and your sis got to be "team officials", so you gals didn't pay a thing ...... , except perhaps the taxi ride back to airport. :p

    Yup, it was tough, escorting Germany and HK "team officials" who only arrived after their team was knocked out of the competition ..... :p:p:p

    I've always found that the best view comes from the cheap free seating seats, plus you get the ability to roam.

    In the case of Likas Indoor Stadium, best view comes from the White Free Seating Seats, as shown on the seating diagram here.

    :eek: Aiyo...Abg Din, that's not my point...I did the comparison just bcoz I wish to discuss whether the price is reasonable...you see...TC/UC & WC's ticket price are even cheaper than this SS Final...dunno lah, just think that it is overprice...:rolleyes:

    I'm planning to attend Sat & Sun session, that'll be a total of RM275 for free seating nia...walau eh, can eat nice nice seafood & sushi & sashimi...:p

    Ticket prices also depend on the general population average purchasing power + inflation + seating capacity + days of competition. So although you are right in the sense that pricing is higher against TC/UC finals or even the World Championships last year, our currency value probably had gone down significantly since then .....both the other competitions last between 7-10 days. Whereas Super Series Finals only get 4 days of competition in an, ahem, more cramped venue ....... :D

    I also think that the best view actually was the white colour portion... the only thing tat's different from the numbered seats is that the numbered seats will be nearer to the court, see clearly on the seating plan... the actual stadium have 10 courts, they make it to only 3 for this super series...Since i always go the badminton court at the likas stadium, and i just went yesterday... the stadium wasn't very big actually, so if you actually sit at the upper part also you can see clearly compare to the other bigger stadium... that's what i think so...bt something i have to remind everyone is that the stadium really hot...

    God...I wanna join in on that get-together! :D
    It's the SS Finals for God's sake! Sadly, no Christmas vacation 'til the 22-12. So can't make it. Would've booked a ticket straight from Amsterdam then. :eek:

    - Loh, you're not bringing Hcyong this time to KK? I thought you two were tourny-mates :p Have fun!

    - PJ, could you please pass on greetings from me to Jennifer? I haven't got her mail address :confused: I'll send you a PM.

    Hope you guys have fun :) Maybe one day I"ll get to meet Hauge ;)

    ok, will pass on your regards to Jen but are you known as Fengwei to her? (Fengwei's also the name of Spore top table tennis player.)She accesses her email like once a year.Better to sms her to get instant reply.

    Shouldn't the SSF be considered more prestigious than TC or WC? It after all sieves out the top players(or at least 80% of the top) to showcase their skills more than their stamina.It means saving time more than money.Money can always be juggled.When ticket price is higher than expected, it just means less money for eating and shopping well.
    Consider the extra 'price' as contribution to players' daily allowance.Surely a worthwhile cause.

    It looks like the players are staying at Sutera Magellan which is next door.So you may wanna check into Sutera Magellan to be sure of breakfast opportunity with LD and TH unless Magellan guests share the same breakfast restaurant as Sutera Pacific.
