Badminton Holiday at Johor-29th March 2014 Malaysian Grand Prix Gold

The location of this year's Malaysia Grand Prix Gold is at Pasir Gudang Johor, roughly 40km from JB immigration check point.
The indoor stadium is located nestled around main roads in a sporting hub cluster, next to large soccer stadium.
The address is Jalan Bandar 81700 Pasir Gudang, Johor.
The indoor stadium is named Perbandaran Pasir Gudang Indoor Stadium.
 Pasir Gudang is a large area dotted with factories, petrochemical industrial complexes and large warehouses.
There are housing area near the industrial complexes.
The location of the stadium is such that there is no public transport, and only cars or charted buses can reach the area.
You can imagine the hassle to visit the place from Singapore.

 As it is a Yonex sponsored event, the stringing machine, strings are well of course, Yonex.
The stringer in blue is a well known badminton stringer at Johor Baru.
Many racquets are strung, from the looks of it, many Nanoray Z-Speed, VT-80, VT-ZF etc.
The ticket is relatively cheap at RM10 for a quaterfinal games.
Bought some socks at the Yonex booth, at RM25 for 2 pairs of 3D-Ergo socks
