'VSS' for Azraai?

I remember when The Malay Mail was sold off by NSTP. A number of my good work mates opted for the VSS scheme. It was a sad day as some of these good folks left with a heavy heart but they got paid handsomely at the same time.

Now former journo-turned-blogger SS Dhaliwal revealed in his blog that national junior coach Azraai Khor Abdullah (pic) - or once known as Khor Lek Seng -, apparently, has been given the boot. But along with that decision comes with a 'bag load of cash'.

Perhaps it's a mutual understanding between the FA of Malaysia and Azraai. Perhaps there's more than just a golden handshake.

HD says: So what's the real story folks?

  1. What has the VSS of your former colleagues got to do with Azraai getting the boot? Those who left from your office left because of a choice unlike Azraai who is asked to leave and paid for some cover-up.
    And for the "handsome" sum your colleagues received, I am sure they earned it from the years of their service. Besides I believe it was not all that "handsome"! In anycase it was MM who wanted let go the years of experience and opt for mediocrity! Look at what The Malay Mail is today! It is free and yet everyone thinks that the paper has closed down! Sad state for a paper which is more than a century old!

  2. Observer, you sound like one sour ex malay mailer. why ur application for vss tak dapat ker?

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.
