Nowadays its Malaysia who is the loudest but the tribal war dance is not

in the form of drums but chants of "Boleh' the famous propoganda slogan

invented by Mahathir to implement the Ketuanan mindset.In fact Malaysia

is increasingly more like the Indonesia of old. Chants of Boleh are even

loud enough to drown out drums and even echo throughout matches.

Most places in the world plan to advance forward, here it is one of the

few places who prefer to move backwards and become more primitive

and divorce itself from the rest of the world.

1983 All England Badminton

There are no records of the full results of the 1983 All England Finals.
It is confirmed though that Frost beat Tian Bing Yi in the semis as Liem Swie King did not compete
in the AE,. It is probable that Luan Jin's opponent in the semis could have been Prakash Padukone.
Prakash was to beat Luan Jin in the 1983 World Championships later.
