Lebanon 2 Malaysia 1

UPDATE (June 25, 11.47am): This comment appeared below my story in Mailsport

"Congratulation MALAYSIA. You are on your way to new heights. However, rather disappointed that the No. 1 & 2 man in FAM does not have the time to watch our players slogging for this win. Supposedly the congratulaory message will be sent out from somewhere overseas.

Anak Perak"

I guess Anak Perak is merely stating facts.

'Fv Craziest Presiden FAM sila letak Jawatan!!!!
jom kasi sokongan... semoga Muhammad Rizal Hashim diberi kekuatan utk terus bersuara demi bolasepak Malaysia"
As Rizal said..."Wow".


Now for the next hurdle.

Ong Kim Swee was a proud man. The national players deserved a pat on their backs. They fought tooth and nail in that match.

Despite playing with 10-men, Malaysia were clearly the better team of the night. The Lebanese players - despite their flair as seen in Mohamad Haidar - failed when it came to working as a team.

For the record, Malaysia edged Lebanon 2-1 in the Round 2 return leg at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil. Both teams were tied 0-0 in the earlier leg.

An even bigger stage awaits Kim Swee and Company - the final round before securing a berth to the London Olympics next year.

Could we relive our 1972 and 1980 memories?

We shall wait and see.

HD says: It was a good match with an equally good turn out.

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.
