Wah lau Wei!

It was a perfect start to the New Year.

World No 1 Lee Chong Wei unleashed the Dragon in him to edge arch rival Lin Dan of China 12-21, 21-18, 21-14 in the Korea Open men's singles final hours ago.

That's a good start for the Penangite as he now gears up for another possible mouth watering clash with Lin Dan in the Maybank Malaysia Open which starts on Tuesday.

Had Chong Wei lost in Seoul, I'm sure many would have raised the presumption that he desperately needs the services of former coach Misbun Sidek.

Now that he has won abroad, would the same critics say that Tay Seu Bock and Rashid Sidek still aren't good enough?

Food for thought.

HD says: Winning the Malaysia Open would be a treat for Chong Wei ahead of the Chinese New Year.


  1. Lin Dan is a moody player. he was clearly not in the mood after what he deemed as a bad line call in the rubber. Thereon he merely lifted the shuttle for LCW to kill...for Lin Dan and Co, losing in the final in a Super Series event is nothing...because they always seem to raise their game in tournaments that matter...

  2. Congrate LCW.

    What about KKK & TBH??..hopefully they will find peaceful solution and concentrating on their performance. Both of them are still young and have a very bright future. It is very sad to hear about their crisis.

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.
