The adventures of Duracell Bunny and Pocket Rocket Man

Squash queen Nicol David and national cyclist Azizulhasni Awang were named the Sportswoman and Sportsman of the Year (2010) at the National Sports Awards night hours ago.

Nicol is nicknamed Duracell Bunny while Azizulhasni is our Pocket Rocket Man (no relation to Rocket Singh).

See how a handful of men try to scare Nicol by doing the Haka during the Cayman Islands Open and what Azizulhasni endured when a large splinter pierced through his leg at the Track World Cup in Manchester recently.

Well done to all those who won.

But the question that lingers on the minds of many...is the National Sports Awards becoming a boring and predictable event? Hmm...

UPDATE (11.30am): "And at the same time please change how the awards are presented as it's the same for donkey years, no progress in terms of making it lively, boring is the key word. " So says SS Dhaliwal, based on his posting Sheer Waste of Money.

  3. I have to agree with you bro. The awards are very boring. I couldn't wait to get home but had to sit through the whole process as I was seated with some VVIP.

    On another note, your mentor does have a good blog but he keeps stealing stories from foreign websites and newspapers. No wonder he is afraid to allow comments on his blog

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…

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.
