Story behind it…

When was the last time you actually take a pause, and appreciate things?
Why suddenly thought of this?

Suppose to meet a friend for lunch. While waiting for her arrival, I walked into a sport’s shop.
A white badminton racquet caught my eye (???????racquet.. hmmm…).
I decided to buy. And at the same time ask for an express re-string.]

racket

How difficult could re-stringing it be right. I requested the gal to have it done within an hour, so that I can pick up and go after my lunch apptmt.

I came back an hr plus later.
It was only half done.

I then stay around ( giving her pressure ), and waited for another hr…
Woo… It was tought.
Concentration…
Being very detail…
Testing of patience…

stringing

She looked really relieve when it was done.
She requested to take a pic with me and my racquet.
She normally string tennis racquet. This was the !st badminton racquet she stringed.

done

How difficult could it be? I got a second thought now.
Everytime when I was playing badminton, I never thought there is this part of hard work supporting every swing of my racquet.

I had a game in the evening ( thanks to my buddy Vincent Ng ), you can imagine how much I appreciate the racquet.

sam p/s: by the way, I thrashed Sam today. ha
