Of being 'kurang ajar' and 'insenstive'

I was labeled ‘kurang ajar’ and 'insensitive' by some ‘ardent’ viewers of Astro Arena’s (801) Kafe Sukan over my take on the Malaysian sports scene during an old episode of the show.

They shared their thoughts on the programme’s facebook account. I, by choice, do not have a facebook account and was only able to view the comments made earlier this morning, thanks to a mutual friend.

I respect opinions, but despise the need to ridicule my -or anyone’s- ethnic background.

Just to clarify;
1. I am NOT a Singaporean. Born in Taiping, bred in KL I am a proud student of Methodist Boys School Sentul.

2. I am for legalised sports betting ONLY if the profits return to sports. My earlier posting ‘I’d bet on nothing…’ says it all.

3. I am not racist. I’m able to converse in Cantonese, love Nasi Dagang with ulam and budu and do watch good Mollywood films. I respect all.

4. I will not apologise for sticking to my guns.

p/s: Thank you to Rizal and Slamet for handling the matter professionally. Cheers!

  1. ignore those imbeciles. personally i think some of the members of the FB group ought to be removed. Banned forever. Dissenting views are ok but once they get personal, things can turn ugly.

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.
Our athletes, the real superheroes, brought smiles through their heroic display. They made everyday a happy day.
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.

Why?

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…

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.
