$50 bucks for what????
That was the reaction I got.
Now that winter's in full swing and it's too cold to do any outdoor activities, we've started our badminton season. 3 games so far.
Perhaps we don't think twice coz we're getting paid in USD. Or perhaps there just aren't many courts here. But my friend back home hit the roof when I told him we pay almost RM200 per 2/hour session for the court rental. And the court doesn't even come with its net; we had to borrow one.
Guess it's one of those things we take for granted back home. Plenty of free outdoor courts. Heck, we could even play in our backyards.
I suppose we're all getting phat anyway, so it's worth it.
(I'm so out of shape I limped to work today after last night's game)
