Are u doing any sports?
of course u do, its just that if u'r not
serious into it till going for championship,
u might be doing it with friends and family.
So what type of sports are u doing?
(No! net surfing is not a sport!)
(No! that is also not a sport!)
So when u'r first thinking of diving
into one particular sport world,
there must be one issue we need to
think about. Now i'm putting aside
other factors such as body weight
and strength cause not much discussion
U cant do kick-boxing if u'r equiped
with an extra 'Butter' on the belly
Ok.. enough mengarut,
When u'r thinking of starting a sport,
u need to buy the equipment.
Some facility provides with equipment
to rent. Some need to buy.
the question is.. which to buy?
Basically a badminton racquet
only devided into two..
the cheap one,
where it is sold in sets of 2 racquet
and 3 shuttle-cocks, with pricess much
less then what u pay for your average
dinner and the material is so cheap
that it'll definitely bent by the
the expensive one,
where the price can go up to quater of
your monthly salary and the racquet is
lighter then the shuttlecock with material
that will not bent even if u throw it
to the rambutan tree to retrieve the
stuck shuttle cock.
We will be comfortable to do the sport
we've never done before in our life.
It'll be a lot easier using the proper
equipment and chances are..
u'll be better in the sport in no time.
we dont know the game..
If we buy the expensive one,
we'll never know what sweetness the
money we paid for? THe lightness?
The swiftiness? we'll never know!
cause we never use the cheap and heavy
racquet that u need to use both hand
just to wave it around.
ok fine.. then lets buy the cheap one
first just to start it all.
we'll upgrade it to the good yonex
or any other 'jenama' they have
to feel the 'sweetness'
The problem is..
chances are we'll never make it
to any pertandingan cause we will
lose interest by our 26th swing..
(Ko ingat baseball bat ker aper?)
and the cheap racquet will be our
mother's pengetuk karpet.
Not only with racquet u know..

(Sylvia? mitsubishi? honda?

Cheap shoes : RM 12.9
Expensive SHoes : RM319
( Adidas, Nike, and even bata... eh bata?)
if u want to try a sport, do you...
Start with the cheap one? then upgrade?
Or start with the good one..
and feel good excelling in the sport?
