Relationship gone sour?

I did not attend the Astro Arena 1st anniversary bash as I spent the weekend in Taiping.

But I received several phone calls throughout the night. And the most consistent subject was on former national singles coach Misbun Sidek and world No 1 Lee Chong Wei.

"No eye contact bro!" I was told.

"Chong Wei will not attend if he has to put the legend's jacket on Misbun" confirmed another acquaintance.

Photographers claim their request of getting Misbun and Chong Wei to shake hands was turned down. Also, both Misbun and Chong Wei did not answer any queries from the Press - as I was told.

This comes as a surprise as Chong Wei once stated that he too would walk out if the national body did not coax Misbun back to the stable.

Tension, tension.

That aside, the Tourism Ministry may fund international badminton tournaments in the future - as reported in today's Mailsports.

And that's good news. At least they don't need to spend millions on events that hardly fill the stands.

HD says: Misbun and Chong Wei should make a trip to Taiping together and chill. I already miss the char kway teow in Aulong...RM2 only!

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.
