FAM dragged into TorTor battle

TorTor Dance Belongs to Indonesia
STOP STEALING INDONESIAN CULTURAL HERITAGE
WE ARE THE INDONESIAN YOUTH GENERATION NEVER LET YOU STEAL OUR CULTURAL HERITAGE

JANJI KAMI MASIH SAMA DENGAN JANJI ORANG-ORANG SEBELUM KAMI
BAHWA SELAMA MASIH DARAH DAN TULANG KAMI BERWARNA MERAH DAN PUTIH
DAN DENGAN CARA KAMI SENDIRI, TAK AKAN KAMI BIARKAN SEORANGPUN BERANI MENCOBA MENURUNKAN SANG SAKA MERAH PUTIH DARI PUCUK TIANG TERTINGGI
TAK AKAN KAMI BIARKAN SEORANGPUN MENGGANGGU BERKIBARNYA SANG DWI WARNA DI LANGIT BIRU IBU PERTIWI RAWE-RAWE RANTAS MALANG-MALANG TUNTAS #TorTorOPS


The FA of Malaysia's (FAM) website was hacked but it had nothing to do with football this time around.

Indonesians are angry over claims that "the TorTor dance and Gordang Sambilan drums would be added to the Malaysian National Heritage Law."

The issue took center stage on the internet, mainly on Twitter, yesterday as Malaysians and Indonesians were involved in a heated exchange although there were many who were trying to pacify the situation.

The claims were made as published here while Indonesia has demanded an explanation from Malaysia over the issue as reported here.

And to those who have not seen how TorTor is performed, kindly visit here.

This is not the first time FAM's website has been hacked. It was hacked several times as seen here and here.

But I remember speaking to FAM's vice president Subahan Kamal who had in last year said there were efforts (and money allocated) to improve the security features on the official website. I wonder if the features were ever installed or not. 

HD says: Let's drop the TorTor issue and continue to poke fun at the Dutch team that ended their campaign miserably in the Euro 2012 as the 'Ayam Belanda' (turkey) of the tournament.

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.
