M-League fixtures and import players.

After winning the Sea Games gold medal followed by two straight defeats in the pre-Olympic qualifiers, the lads will now head back to their respective teams.

Singaporean journos are eager to do a build up of their Young Lions playing in the Super League next season. However, they are clueless as to the fixtures.

Prior the Sea Games, this was raised but I was told to "relax la brother" and wait after the Sea Games. Why? Well the Sea Games team manager Hamidin Mohd Amin is also the competition committee chairman.

Wasn't there talk of a Cambodian club joining the league next year? What happened to that?

Fixtures asides, we now have a sudden influx of foreign players trying to impress our teams here.

The latest is Australian Michael Baird (pic) who will play alongside Brendan Gan for Sabah.

And the states have received a Royal Warning as FA of Malaysia deputy president Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah said teams need to adhere to the guidelines before obtaining the services of an import player.

Hopefully we won't see an Ivan Ziga episode. The Slovakian was not paid by Sarawak and threatened to lodge the matter to Fifa.

Then again, our local lad Jeremy Danker seems to face the same predicament with Sabah after being given the boot earlier this year.

A gentle reminder to the coaches - do watch your words as you could be penalised.

So much of drama, and the league has yet to begin.

HD says: Looking forward to an exciting 2012 M-League.

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.
