Najib: Like the Young Tigers we will triumph

UPDATE 10.45pm: Msia lost 3-2 to 10-men Bahrain despite enjoying a 2-0 lead.

------

Perhaps on this holy day our Harimau Malaya could finally earn their points since playing in Round 3 of the Asian Zone Olympic qualifiers.

Malaysia play Bahrain at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil tonight (8.45pm kick off).

National coach Ong Kim Swee has promised the fans a "good showing".

The defenders and midfielders have been playing well.

Now let's hope the strikers play their part and get the goals. If we lose tonight, we can kiss our Olympic dream goodbye.

As Prime Minister Najib Razak said in his in his special interview with Bernama in conjunction with the Umno General Assembly:

If we are determined and strong-willed, then, like what the Young Tigers have proven, we will be able to triumph over the immense pressure being heaped upon us; although it was not a level playing field in Jakarta, our team made it.

The Young Tigers are now an inspiration to many, and hopefully they will not disappoint.

HD says: Salam Maal Hijrah 1433 and best of luck to our national team.

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.

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.

Why?

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…

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.
