14 Do you get nervous when playing the top teams?
Sometimes but not always. Prefer to focus more on how well the team plays and my personal performance. Once you start playing, any nervousness fades away. I'd probably get more nervous playing games that really matter. eg: Asian Champs finals.
15 Have you ever had any major injuries?
Tore my ACL 2 years ago, 6 months before the Asian Champs (which was to be held in Feb 05 but got postponed because of the Tsunami). Was a very challenging period in my sporting life
Many Thanks to Jane Sng and Jean Ng for making this interview possible.
