Cashing in on weddings

Khairul Fahmi & Leuniey Nikah_OHBULAN-14National goalkeeper Khairul Fahmi Che Mat and model Leuniey tied the knot in Pasir Pekan, Tumpat yesterday.

Congratulations to the duo.

The picture was taken from Oh Bulan.

But let's look at the subject of weddings and the mentality of cashing in on weddings.

Apparently the rights to 'cover' the Khairul Fahmi's wedding was given to one particular organisation that even the official Kelantan FA media arm was not allowed to take snap shots.

Betul ka?

Such was also seen during Lee Chong Wei and Wong Mew Choo's wedding dinner. The rights of the wedding was handed to another media establishment despite Chong Wei being an Astro Arena and Maxis ambassador.

One would not blame the 'celebrities' for cashing in. However, it is indeed surprising that those (media organisations) who have been supporting them all along seem to have been 'dianak tirikan' for more moolah (money).

Oh well....

  1. HD.. its pasir pekan, tumpat.. not pasir puteh, tumpat.. PEACE..

  2. Lama saya ambil masa untuk memikirkan persoalan ini.

    Perkahwinan, umumnya, melibatkan seluruh keluarga kedua-dua pengantin.

    Khususnya di Malaysia, perbelanjaan perkahwinan bukan murah. Malah, semakin lama semakin ramai bakal pengantin yang membuat pinjaman semata-mata untuk kahwin. Selalunya kerana mengikut kehendak keluarga sendiri/pasangan.

    Bagi saya pula, perkahwinan bukan melibatkan status kariernya sebagai ahli sukan. Jika ya sekalipun, ia bukan keutamaan. Sekaligus, ia tidak seharusnya merangkumi penajaan sukan seseorang atlit.

    Yang penting, Apex membuka sekurang-kurangnya satu majlis untuk kedatangan peminat dan kelab penyokong.

    Saya percaya, media seperti Kelantan FA tidak dibenarkan mengambil gambar bagi mengekalkan eksklusiviti (ada ke perkataan seperti ini?) yang merupakan ciri utama penajaan kepada majlis perkahwinan seperti ini.

    Maksudnya, tiada kejutan di sini.

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.
