Safee gets a lifeline, Ahmad Shabery disappointed

The FA of Malaysia (FAM) are willing to make exceptions if national hitman Safee Sali (pic) wishes to return to Malaysia once his contract with Pelita Jaya FC expires on Jan 31.

This include allowing Safee to sign up with any M-League team despite the registration date has passed.

The situation in Indonesia remains messy and if nothing is being done to solve the matter, then Safee should ditch plans of playing in the Republic and ply his trade elsewhere.

FAM vice-president Hamidin Amin even said that his former team Selangor are ever willing to snap him up and there are many other teams in the M-League that could use his services.

Meanwhile, Sports Ministry Ahmad Shabery Cheek wore a frustrated look and took a swipe at the Malaysian Athletics Union and the Malaysian Weightlifting Federation for their inaction over the doping fiasco at the Indonesia Sea Games.

Two national athletes - one from the 4x400m men's relay gold medal team and the other a weightlifter - were found positive with banned substances but the national associations kept mum over the matter.

"I am very sad this has happened and it is something we cannot tolerate. To have to return the gold medal after all the publicity that they received is shameful."

Read more of Ahmad Shabery's comments in today's NST.

HD says: Safee should wait until a day before his contract expires before making any decision.


  1. So..who is going to lodge the first police report against the MAU officials for the doping fiasco?

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.
