Malaysia loses to Taiwan - in hockey! (and some AFF updates)

While some of us may still be reeling from the national football team's 1-1 draw against Bangladesh, here's another shocker in the sports scene.

The Malaysian hockey team went down 3-2 to Taiwan in the 4th AHF Indoor tournament in Thailand.

Read 'What a disgrace' for the full story.

Apparently it is not the national team but the Armed Forces representing the country


Second chance for Azamuddin
National football coach K.Rajagobal replaces injured Zaquan Adha Abdul Radzak by recalling Pahang player Azamuddin Mohd Akil for the opening match against Singapore in the AFF Cup on Sunday.

PM boosts players' morale
Prime Minister Najib Razak visited the national players ahead of their AFF Cup campaign.

Apex to tie the knot on Dec 28
National goalkeeper Khairul Fahmi Che Mat (pic) had, during a press conference yesterday, revealed his marriage plans with  Nur Eilunie Natasha Nazri or better known as Leuniey Natasha in Pasir Pekan, Tumpat, Kelantan on Dec 28. Shouldn't such an announcement be made after the AFF Cup?

No thank you coach
Terengganu's Zubir Azmi and Nik Shahrul Azim from Kelantan will not be joining Ong Kim Swee's Harimau Muda team next season.

It is believed that Zubir is comfortable staying put in Kuala Terengganu while Nik Shahrul is set to play an important role in protecting the Red Warrior's fort as experienced defender S.Subramaniam is still out of action.

  1. AHF : I'm more interested in asking - who chose ATM?

    Azzamuddin : Kenapa bukan Farhan? Sudah tak mahu eksperimen?...

    PM Visits : He should have slap Rajagopal for wasting public money - literally

    Apek : Dah sampai masa

    Zubir : No info, No comment - Nowadays Che Mat Jusoh just kept quiet.

    Nik Shahrul Azim : Haresh boleh tanya Bojan. Bojan sendiri yang mahu Shahrul Azim kekal di TRW.

    I believe, the plan is to do better, if not at par, in AFC. And in Malaysia, of course.

    Did you know that KAFA had lost 3 sponsors already due to Mat Yo moving out?


  2. I'm sure readers would have notice the common denominator of the above two associations.

    Pak Nik

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.
