I see Thomas Cup as one of the great matches like EPL but it’s the Asian version where most of the people in Asia, would watch this cup that host every 2 years. The last round that was hosted by Malaysia was 10 years ago and for the year 2010 Malaysia get to host one of the prestigious tournament at Putra Stadium, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur.
I have Google about this competition and the leading Cup winner is China, Indonesia, Malaysia and some other countries, with current Malaysian team playing at home ground, expectations is high and hoping to lift the trophy again as what Rashid Sidek era which was lifted once by Malaysia during year 1992, but this round they are encountering all time favourites China and Indonesia, that had line up a strong team for this competition.
I was lucky enough to watch get an opportunity to watch it live on this very semi final match that full with ‘kancheongness’ and hopes to prevail to Final and lift the cup.
I was here around 6 and the car park was FULL and the amount of people in this place is amazingly alot. I thought of buying KFC to eat but I see the line I also wanted to faint as the people are lining up a BIG S.
While about to enter, Malaysian home fans already cheering, shouting, drumming and the atmosphere of excitment is there.
Indonesian Fans preparing to cheer and add in the atmosphere.
