Almost every city in the world has a top class football club.

Not in Malaysia.

KL are only basking on their past glory in the 80s.

Some claim it was the then Lord Mayor Tan Sri Elyas Omar who had unintentionally spoilt KLFA by giving them generous funding and land.

Elyas's successors were not so generous and I don't blame them. After all City Hall money is collected from KL folks and thus it should go back to the city people. Not just one football team.

Not too long ago KLFA managed to get funding from chemicals giant Ancom Bhd but many were clueless towards what the money was splurged on.

Today KLFA are feeling the pinch for they learn not many companies are as generous as Ancom.

And the small but loyal fans are getting rather annoyed with this uncertainty.

The fans want to lend a helping hand. December 17, 2011, KLFA Stadium, 10am.

It is not about the total amount that will be raised but the support towards KL. Dunia Sukan has jumped on the bandwagon as well, as seen in the posting 'Selamatkan Kuala Lumpur!'.

HD says: As per my previous posting, I will be there with my RM100.

  1. I wonder what the officials from the President until the EXCO officials are doing? Why is it so hard to get a sponsor? Even a team from FAM League also can secure more that one sponsor. Ironically, KL is the capital of Malaysia, and there are many local and foreign companies based here. I think this team should turn into private. Let some big CEO's from MNC's or GLC's take over the team. There should be a requirement though. E.g. The owner should provide at least RM500,000 per year to the team.

    And not just KL, the whole system in the M-League should revamp! Every team that competes in M-League should have an owner. In other words, each MNC's and GLC's should adopt a state football team or football club. And also not to forget the sponsors. Each team and club should secure at least 3 or 4 sponsors, otherwise say sayonara to football.

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.
