1. Where are the Malaysians? Why are we not represented?
2. Zone 3.3. Championship is now called East Asian when in Mongolia? Used to be amongst Asean countries.
3. Yet other than hosts Mongolia, Vietnam, Philippines and Indonesia, just a token entry in men from Myanmar and in women we have token entries from Korea and Hong Kong.
4. Seems that Thailand, Singapore and Brunei have accepted they are not good enough and there is no point to talk about Cambodia and Timor Leste with zero activity or even Laos although they now at least have an annual Open tournament.
