Padang oh padang...

Setiap tahun kita mendengar perkara yang sama - keadaan padang di Stadium Nasional Bukit Jalil tidak dalam keadaan baik.

Kali ini juga skripnya sama. Oleh yang demikian, Persatuan Bola Sepak Malaysia terpaksa meminda venue perlawanan akhir Piala Malaysia ke Stadium Shah Alam.

Ini diputuskan oleh Jawatankuasa Pertandingan semasa mesyuarat mereka baru-baru ini.

Yang agak aneh ialah jika ianya di panggil Stadium Nasional, stadium kebangaan negara, kenapa padangnya masih buruk? Padang merupakan aset yang penting. Cuba bayangkan sebuah kereta Ferarri tanpa engine?

Tetapi ada yang menyatakan bahawa stadium tersebut "terpaksa" menjadi hos kepada konsert dan pelbagai lagi aktiviti untuk mengaut keuntungan supaya duit tersebut boleh diguna pakai untuk kos penyelenggaraan.

Sudah tentu sesebuah stadium harus dibina dan dipakai dengan praktikal.

Saya masih ingat lagi sekitar tahun 2005 saya berada di Stadium Nasional bersama beberapa wakil dari Zoysian di mana mereka ingin memperkenalkan rumput yang dipanggil 'Marimo seashores paspalum'. Di dalam buku keterangan syarikat tersebut, ada sepucuk surat daripada FAM yang memuji syarikat tersebut dengan kerja-kerja naiktaraf di Stadium Tan Sri Hassan Yunos di Johor Baru.

Akan tetapi, saya juga masih ingat satu artikel The Malay Mail bertajuk 'Lost in a sea of grass' (April 28, 2006) yang mempertikai pengunaan seashore paspalum.

Enam tahun kemudian kita masih berbicara tentang keadaan padang di stadium tersebut.

Adakah masalah ini akan selesai? Atau adakah ini akan masalah ini akan berulang setiap tahun tanpa sebarang kesudahan?

Janganlah stadium Nasional yang sepatutnya lambang kebanggaan kita bertukar menjadi bahan jenaka.

  1. Maybe Udin n Idin rasa Selangor dpt msk final. Itu yang p tukar ke Shah Alam.

    Mmg x dinafikan keadaan padang yg teruk, tetapi FAM sepatutnya telah membuat percancangan yg rapi dgn Perbadanan Stadium spy event2 penting dpt dilakukan di SBJ.

    Mksdnya disini, dua2 failed dlm pengurusan...

  2. To Anon. 8.55 am, Udin n Idin? I loike.

    Haresh, what if Selangor make it to the final? Wouldn't that give Selangor huge advantage over ATM/Lion? In this case FAM failed miserably (in fact in most cases pun).

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.
