The battle of the Reds

Almost three decades ago, K.Devan (pic right) and B.Satianathan (pic left) played for the same team – Negri Sembilan.

Both saw action on the pitch under various coaches including Zainuddin Husin, Tony Chia and Brazilian Santos.

Devan was born and bred in Seremban, having graduated from Sekolah Menengah Teknik Ampangan.

Satianathan, who was once the national coach, studied in Muar but started his footballing career in Seremban.

Tonight both coaches will face off in a Super League match as Devan’s Selangor host Satianathan’s Kelantan at the Shah Alam Stadium (kick off 8.45pm).

The Red Giants are eager to continue their supremacy at the top of the table (53 points out of 21 matches) while the east coast Red Warriors are eager to collect points as they trail at the second spot (48 points).

One thing for sure, its going to be an interesting affair just before Germany takes on Uruguay in the World Cup 3rd-4th playoffs tomorrow morning (2.30am).

What went wrong with KL SEA Games?

145 gold medals.
It's the best Team Malaysia has ever achieved since the inception of the SEAP Games in1959.
The 29th edition of the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur ended yesterday. The opening ceremony dazzled those at the stands and viewers at home while the performances during the closing ceremony yesterday jogged plenty of musical memories to many.

Kudos to the officials - from the coaches, the National Sports Institute and National Sports Council - for their hard work in ensuring our athletes perform to their best.
But it was not all memorable.

'World fashion disaster' in KL

World Fashion Week Asia 2017 ended over the weekend.

And the launch on Friday at Palace of the Golden Horses at Mines Resort City just outside Kuala Lumpur turned out to be a forgettable night.


It was poorly organised.

Just as many are trying to get over the nightmare witnessed throughout the KL SEA Games, the organiser of World Fashion Week Asia 2017 has made it look like Malaysians seem to have lost it when it comes to hosting major events and hospitality.

Here's why.

Royal protocol ignored

1. The Sultanah of Terengganu Sultanah Nur Zahirah was invited to grace the event.
    a. There was no holding room for the Sultanah and VIPs accompanying her.
    b. The Sultanah was invited on stage without anyone accompanying her there (a big NO NO if anyone knows protocol involving royalty).
    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

Klang run 'illegal', says Sports Commissioner

UPDATE (Dec 11; 11.58am): Sporting events approved by Sports Commissioner's Office will be posted on the Youth and Sports Ministry's website starting Dec 14, as revealed by the Sports Commissioner in her statement today. I'm glad the last point of my observation (as per posting right below) has been addressed.


UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
