Official attire supplier not invited

As I was munching on some muruku while watching Enthiran on RTM2, I received not one but a handful of phone calls regarding the SEA Games flag handing ceremony next week.

After exchanging Diwali greetings, I was told Mesuma Sdn Bhd will not be invited to hand out mementos to the VIPs during the ceremony.

The ceremony is hosted by the National Sports Council (NSC). FYI, the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) -the main body when it comes to major multi-event Games including the SEA Games - used to host such events.

We all know about the soured relationship between Mesuma and NSC. To refresh one's memory, read here.

Note that Mesuma remains as the official attire for OCM. All athletes - especially the national bowlers - will don Mesuma's attire during the SEA Games.

Yet they aren't invited?

But I guess you don't invite the baker of your cake to your birthday party eh?

The picture above shows Mesuma's Maya Heng - flanked by the respective officials donning Mesuma attire - showing the official attire for the 2009 Laos Sea Games.

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.
