Something stinks

Dozens of articles were written about our very own Subkhiddin Salleh's (pic) appointment as a referee to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Many kept their eyes glued to the tv, hoping to see some form of Malaysian representation on the pitch through the Penang school teacher.

Nevertheless, that never happened as despite being appointed referee, Subkhidin was only the fourth official in seven matches.

And now there's talk of conspiracy in the selection board of the referee's committee at the World Cup - as published in today's The Malay Mail.

Subkhidin does not want to talk about it, but those close to him acknowledge something fishy is going on in South Africa.

HD says: It's always about money.


  1. HD,

    Indeed, you're right .. I've been navigating the world cup screen for him since the start of WC .. hopefully you could cover more on this ....

  2. Take a cue from our Jeff Goh, who was appointed as well, but he was the fifth official throughout his stint in World Cup..

    Yet, he remained "positive"as he shared his experienced in this link below...

  3. Yea...
    1. remember the bidding to host the (DOHA) Asian Games by Malaysia as well..
    2. the attempt to move out AFC HQ from KL
    3. host of World Cup 2022..(why now only talking about timing..from summer to winter)
    4. Hoping the people in power to learn something about integrity.

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.


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.
