A waste of time?

That seems to be the feeling among sports journos who have been waiting at Wisma KBS, hoping for BA of Malaysia president Nadzmi Salleh to speak about the current fiasco enveloping the scene.

Only Shabery met the Press with Nadzmi no where to be seen.

Shabery will meet national coach Misbun Sidek for dinner later. It looks like Mr Minister is playing mediator although he stressed that the "BAM should solve this matter internally".

Was Shabery referring to this report when he said that Nadzmi didn't want to meet the Media "for fear his words will be misconstrued again?"

Hmm.

UPDATE (5.00pm): 1. Minister to find out more from the Malaysian Karate Federation (Makaf) about the expulsion of its long time national coach P.Arivalagan.

2. Makaf to hold meeting in Malacca tonight. Exponents will continue to meet Makaf president Mohd Ali Rustam (who is also Malacca chief minister) tomorrow morning.

3. PM Najib Tun Razak will host the national football squad to a luncheon at Sri Perdana on Jan 12. He could announce the rewards instored for the team.

HD says: To Shabery and Misbun, can I suggest we meet up for supper at BIFC in Bukit Indah, Ampang? :)

'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…

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.

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.
