RM200k for a racquet

With RM200,000, one can either;

A. Buy an apartment
B. Pay up four new Perodua Myvis or a new Peugoet 308 CC (soft-top)
C. Own a brand new shining Harley Davidson Softail Custom 105 Anniversary
D. Get married (again)!

But a good Samaritan decided to spend that amount on the racquet world No 1 shuttler Lee Chong Wei used to defend his All-England title recently.

The proceeds will go to the Hope and Smile 3-11 Earthquake and Tsunami fund raising campaign.

The exact amount raised has yet to be revealed. A quick check with the organisers state; "We're in the midst of calculating the overall funds received".

Among the other items auctioned off included;

Chong Wei's yellow jersey which he wore during the All-England final = RM 24,000
Chong Wei's black jersey (which I doubt he) wore during the All-England final = RM 26,000
Another racquet = RM 85,000

Chong Wei and Taufik Hidayat played in an exhibition match at Juara Stadium. Chong Wei won 22-20, 19-21, 22-20.

It's all good...in the name of charity.

Astro Arena's Shaukei Kahar even announced - live on tv - NST writer Ajitpal Singh's upcoming wedding dinner on 11 Dec. It was due to a joke Norbakti Alias, Shaukei, Ajitpal and I had shared earlier

HD says: Someone told me that Chong Wei's All-England final racquet was handed to the first lady Rosmah Mansor. Ye ke?
