KLHC bullish, Malaysia Cup final ticket is RM40; tough time for Raja's boys

Much has been said about the Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) hockey league.

And tonight KL Hockey Club will play TNB for a shot at the TNB Cup.

These are the words of KLHC coach Dharma Abdullah ahead of tonight's match;

"No doubt Faisal is a good player but that does not mean a thing as in a final what is important is that the team performs up to expectations. I believe that TNB will be a tough nut to crack even if Faisal does not play as stated by TNB."

Meanwhile, the FA of Malaysia has set the price of the Malaysia Cup final ticket at RM40 for adults and RM5 for children under 12. The final will be held on Oct 20 at the Shah Alam Stadium.

  1. Bila kalah dengan Singapore masa kelayakan Piala Dunia tempohari, Rajagopal kata, itu tak penting sebab matlamat utama adalah kelayakan ke Piala Asia.

    Kita sama-sama tunggu dan lihat sahaja apa yang akan jadi nanti.


  2. Aiyoo Singapore! Don't try to take Ong Kim Swee away lah. Didn't you Singaporean read Rajagopal holds the record for best achievement as a football coach in Malaysia. I swear, as the article was written, said by Rajagopal himself. So for your best interest, take away Rajagopal lah, wei!

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.

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.
