The official Sports Supporters Club of Malaysia, Famemas Club KL and Selangor, organized a trip to cheer for our Malaysian national shuttlers at the recent Aviva Singapore Open Badminton Super Series on Saturday 13-Sunday 14 June 2009.The trip went ahead as scheduled, despite the defeat of the Malaysian shuttlers at the Quarterfinal stage on Friday.
20 members participated in this annual trip, although it was hoped that more members would have participated. The delegation departed from Plaza Sentral, near KL Sentral, in the wee hours of the morning. Participants stayed at Madras Hotel in the heart of the City.
Apart from being in the Singapore Indoor Stadium for the Semifinal matches, participants also spent time sightseeing at Esplanade and Clarke Quay, where group photos were taken. We also went on a City Tour along the route where the Formula One race was held. In the morning, members were dropped at Orchard Road district where they did some shopping.
The journey home was not a boring one, as the participants enjoyed themselves with karaoke singing, watching a movie and a video of past Famemas trips abroad, and of course, plenty of camaraderie through jokes. Mansor entertained all with his evergreen and off the cuff jokes. Although the journey back to KL was fraught with traffic jam, it was nevertheless a tiring but enjoyable trip for all those who attended.
As the Organising Committee Chairman, Dorairaj, aptly put it,’ I brought my daughter to the trip to fill up the coach, and to see her enjoying herself, really, really made my day.’
Famemas Club would like to thank its sponsors, Sunway City Bhd and Land and General Bhd for its generous contribution towards the success of the trip. And not forgetting the loyal supporters who despite not cheering their favorite stars in action, still made the trip in the spirit of sheer sportsmanship.
