Ditched

World No 1 Lee Chong Wei (pic) has decided to "ditch" 100Plus for a better offer. I wouldn't blame him.

Word has it that the Penangite has been offered four times the sponsorship deal with 100Plus. For the record, his contract with 100Plus ended recently.

Chong Wei goes for big bucks eh?

But there is also news that 100Plus isn't the only one Chong Wei has ditched recently. Go figure.

HD says: My neighbour Mr Lim, a hardcore Chong Wei fan, was the one who alerted me about the words 100Plus missing from Chong Wei's bottle during the Malaysian Open GP at Alor Star recently.

  1. This is a typical gutter sport reporting! What is so wrong for a successful athlete securing better sponsorship deals? Commercial brands are always on the lookout to be associated with winning athletes.

  3. Nothing wrong in securing better sponsorships at all. But never forget or try to be grateful to the sponsors who supported you when you were up and coming and were in dire need of funds. Besides, greed can lead to your downfall. Also beware of all the sponsors who try to cash in when you are successful. The higher one gets, the harder the fall gets - always remember that!

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.

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.
