About me


Hello, my name is Edward Chew, and I am a registered architect with the Board of Architects Malaysia (LAM). I am currently dividing my time between practice and teaching. 

Badminton has always been a deeply-felt passion of mine and the only sport at which I excelled during my school days. I began playing badminton at the age of nine with a wooden racket, and now, as I look back, I realize how quickly time has passed.

I once stayed behind until the hall closed after a lengthy session of badminton with friends. As I looked around at the sheer number of shuttlecock tubes and shuttlecocks scattered across the floor and overflowing trash bins, I was struck by how much trash is generated after just one session of badminton games. 

And it was at this moment that the idea for Shoootle emerged as I thought back to my teenage years, when I used to make a target practice apparatus to perfect my serves at home. In essence, Shoootle is simply an updated or improved version of the target practice apparatus I used to make back in the 80s. 

As more and more people embrace sustainability and eco-friendliness in their daily lives, I hope that Shoootle will become a staple in every hall, home, or office of many badminton fans, providing endless fun and entertainment for people of all ages. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I wish you success in all your endeavors.
