Double boost for Team Petronas Malaysia

UPDATE (5.50pm): Azlan Shah Kamaruzan claims he did not issue any statement for an apparent outburst over the selection criteria for the Moto2 wildcard as seen here.

Below is the full statement that was just sent to members of the Press

I refer to the e-mailed press release sent out to the media on October 5, 2011, which had subsequently been published in several national newspapers, television and radio stations.

I wish to clarify that the press release was never authorized by either myself or team Boon Siew Honda Malaysia Racing, nor had we been contacted by anyone representing the media on that matter.

This incident has tarnished my name and reputation as a professional rider. Towards that end, my team views this matter seriously and we will be making a police report as this could affect my future with my team and my sponsors.
With this statement, I appeal to the Malaysian media to help me clear my name.

ildcard entries for the Moto2 event in the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix at the Sepang International Circuit from Oct 21-23.

Both riders will represent Team Petronas Malaysia in the GP.

This is clearly Hafizh's big break as he published in The Star today.

Zamri is set to burn rubber with the new MD2011 while Hafizh will utilise the MD2010 machine.

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.
