Pilih bulu

The Education Ministry (MoE) issued a statement pertaining the bashing of a Form Two school boy by several fifth formers.

The statement by sports division director Ee Hong read:

Dear Haresh,

Thank you for your concern. We are aware of this case. As the matter has been reported to the police we are leaving it to the police for further investigation. The school has taken action according to procedures instituted.

The boy, son of a Malaysian Hockey Federation officer, suffered bruises on his face and lost four of his front teeth. He was whacked pretty bad. It's a police matter now, as reported in today's Mailsport.

Deputy Education Minister Dr Wee Ka Siong replied my SMS saying he was flying off to London from Switzerland and will only be back on Sunday.

Some officials are on the ball. They can be in Timbuktu and are still able to answer our queries through the phone, SMS or even email.

Deputy health minister Rosnah Rashid Shirlin was at the Asean Inter Parliamentary Assembly in Cambodia last month but was still able to furnish details about the nation's new health care transformation plan.

National Sports Institute CEO Dr Ramlan Aziz too is always ever willing to share his thoughts or put the record straight even if he is in Kuching or London.

Even Cheras police chief ACP Mohan Singh Tara Singh took time off from his busy schedule to explain the status of the case.

But you also have some officials who will only speak to their favourite "Media organisation". These officials will even wait for them despite running late for another appointment.

I know this happens a lot for general news related press conferences but for sports? Hmm...

  1. pilih bulu aka pilih kroni...Malaysia???...amalan biase bro..

    Gua tak pilih bulu bila publish komen, termasuk komen-komen yg kutuk gua.

    Yg gua tak approve ialah personal attack terhadap org lain. So kalau ada org tinggalkan komen menyatakan lu dah berkahwin tapi masih beromen dgn kambing kat luar, gua tak approve. pasal personal mah =)

    terima kasih dan majulah sukan utk negara.

    p/s: Nama saya Haresh Deol. Nama anda?

  7. It's because the public does not trust the impartiality of the press; they resort to passing comments as 'Anonymous'. But your example of 'beromen dengan kambing diluar' reflects on your line of thought......

  8. And good morning to you another Anon 8.02am.

  9. nasib gua tak kawin lagi..kalau tak sure lu tulis gua romen kambing kat luar...kambing pun sodap

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.
