Badminton is one of my favorite sports. I started to play it when I was about 7 or 8 years old with my sister along the sidewalk in front of our home after dinner. I stopped playing this game when I was in high school for I was busy with school work. After I got a job in IBM in New York, I resumed the game with my co-workers on Wednesday evening at the IBM country club. Later my wife, Khamchanh or Chu started to enjoy the game too. We had a great time playing and we brought all our three children to the IBM country club during our games too.
