Gila kuasa?

Or unfinished business?

Sepaktakraw Association of Malaysia president Ahmad Ismail (pic) insists he should not vacate from the "kerusi panas" (hot seat) and will remain as president until after "sepaktakraw achieves success".

Read more in today's The Star.

Ahmad is not stranger to controversy, as evident here.

Perhaps Ahmad has a grand master plan to see Malaysia win the ISTAF World Cup or the King's Cup. Or perhaps achieving "success" means managing to beat South Korea in any competition.

However, Ahmad made a valid point.

“What about other sports which failed to win medals?

There are associations helm by presidents for years and they have not tasted glory. Athletics is one of them.

There is also a situation where athletes fend for themselves without the help of any structured training programme and yet win medals - like snooker.

And Ahmad, what is your definition of success? To win a Sea Games gold medal? Or to win the World Cup?

HD says: If only people will have the interest of sports in their hearts. Sigh!


  1. Those people helming sport body incl MAAU, still refuse to accept the fact-DOWNHILL. They FAIL to PLAN , so they are PLANning to FAIL. Don't talk only. MODAL AIR LIUR , siapa pun boleh. PSM, MAAU is not their personal property.

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.
