MHL - it's a wrap

UPDATE 3.14pm: "The MHL  has lost it's shine, it's time that it needs a good coating of brasso."

Those were the words of  KL Hockey Club stakeholder George Koshy. Read more on


The TNB Malaysian Hockey League has come to an end.

KL Hockey Club were indeed the clear favourites as they zapped TNB 3-0 to win the TNB Cup final  which was also shown live on Astro Arena at the National Hockey Stadium in Bukit Jalil last night.

Tengku Ahmad Tajuddin drew first blood in the ninth minute while KLHC's other goals were courtesy of Ismail Abu and Amerullah Aziz - all scored in the first half.

Johor, meanwhile, defeated Armed Forces 4-2 to lift the President's Cup.

Fans were also able to keep themselves updated thanks to the official website

Those within the scene would surely have plenty to say about this year's league.

And there's also the short 'break' before the 50th Razak Cup begins this Sunday till Oct 23 in Kuantan.

  1. MHL has become a case of "same shit, different smell". It's mundane and it's a bore. MHF should put a cap on having the number of national team players in a team to balance the books.

    In fact, perhaps they should put a cap on foreigner imports, too. I realised that many of the clubs are imported players whose qualities are at most on par with what we already have in our own backyard.

    MHF needs to revamp the league ... hell, it need to revamp itself first.

  2. Hockey is dead since Mike left. Now slumberjack and deadwood are sleeping. Haresh write more as you did previously pls save malaysian hockey

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.
