A business venture

Apparently the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) has plans to contribute to the Sports Ministry's Sports Industry campaign.

Not to earn brownie points - or so I've been told - but OCM would like to see more individuals and companies set up business entities that will double up as clubs especially for athletics in the country.

OCM hopes;

1. With a business approach, this would interest more people to initiate such clubs where such clubs will not be overly dependent on funding from government but from members instead.

2. While there are many taekwondo and futsal academies in the country, OCM hopes to see more establishment catering for fencing and athletics to help cultivate the sporting culture at the grassroots, provide a form of guidance to those who leave school and widen the pool of talents.

Such establishments will be registered as companies and therefore will not fall under the ambit of the Sports Commissioner's Office. It can be a sole proprietor or a business venture with an existing organisation.

Coaches will have to be of certain levels while there is a strict grading method. If such regulations are met, OCM will endorse such establishments.

Sounds good in theory. Now the question is - will it work in reality?

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.
