Let the games begin

The Super League (football) starts tonight.

The main attraction would surely be the match between Singapore's LionsXII and Kelantan at the Jalan Besar Stadium in Singapore.

Fresh from winning the Sultan Ahmad Shah Cup, Negeri Sembilan are eager to prove their worth by defeating Selangor at the Paroi Stadium tonight.

Here are my match ups as published in today's Mailsport.

Negri Sembilan v Selangor (Paroi Stadium, 8.45pm)

Fresh from winning the Sultan Ahmad Shah Cup, Negri are determined to prove their win was no flash in the pan. Despite a string of ‘youngsters’, the Deers are capable of outplaying Selangor in Paroi. Nevertheless, Selangor are eager to start on a good footing and could settle for a draw.

Prediction: Negri Sembilan 1 Selangor 1

Perak v Terengganu (Perak Stadium, 8.45pm)

Terengganu may have enjoyed success last season but they have lost several players and would now have to start fresh. Perak, meanwhile, still have the majority of last year’s players including Akmal Rizal Rakhli and Chan Wing Hoong. Also, the Seladangs will have better ammunition with the likes of Serbian Lazar Popovic upfront.

Prediction: Perak 2 Terengganu 0

Felda United v Sabah (Hang Jebat Stadium, 4.45pm)

Sabah struggled to play decent friendly matches prior the start of the season and this could severely handicap them as they play the big boys in the Super League. Felda United, meanwhile, are in a better position judging from their preparation last month and could steal all three points.

Prediction: Felda United 3 Sabah 0

Sarawak v KL (Sarawak Stadium, 8.15pm)

KL are in doldrums and with main hitman Stanley Bernard Samuel sidelined, they could face an uphill battle in Kuching. Sarawak are eager to prove their worth having earned a promotion to the Super League this season and could very well edge the city lads.

Prediction: Sarawak 1 KL 0

T-Team v Kedah (Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium, 8.45pm)

T-Team turned heads last season. Kedah, meanwhile, are eager to regain their glory days. It will be an interesting clash between the two teams and it could end up with a stalemate.

Prediction: T-Team 2 Kedah 2

LionsXII v Kelantan (Jalan Besar Stadium)

The Singaporeans are back in the form of the LionsXII. It is unclear who is their 12th player but the Lions are hungry for success and what better way than to crush Kelantan. However, the Red Warriors suffered a bruised ego after losing their battle against Negri Sembilan in the Sultan Ahmad Shah Cup and are adamant of hunting down the Lions in their own den.

Prediction: Kelantan 2 LionsXII 1

PKNS v Johor FC (PJ Stadium, 8.45pm)

K.Devan seems to have a “Midas touch” especially in the first season of every new team he takes on. Now coaching Johor FC, Devan is adamant the southern team enjoy a fruitful season ahead by managing a comfortable win over PKNS at Kelana Jaya tonight.

Prediction: PKNS 0 Johor FC 2

HD says: May the best team win.

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.

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…

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.
