Lee Chong Wei nets 9th Malaysia Open title

Lee Chong Wei hardly broke a sweat when he defeated Indonesia's Sony Dwi Kuncoro 21-7, 21-8 to win his ninth Malaysia Open title and his second title of the year after netting the Korea Open last week.

Mixed doubles pair Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying made accompanied Chong Wei to the final but lost 21-13, 21-18 to Danish pair Joachim Fischer Nielsen-Christinna Pedersen.

Chong Wei's win was expected.

And what else was expected? The fact that no other Malaysian was named champion.

  1. LCW might be a great badminton player that Malaysia ever produced, but then again we also must not forget how miserable was he when facing Lin Dan in London Olympics?

    Imagine, leading the third game 19-17(decider)but squandering it with poor mental skills. At that point, urgency did not prevail where its supposed to be.

    Playing base and net was the most stupid tactic used by LCW at that point of time.

    At the Olympic, LCW not only let the Malaysian down, he also put himself down by his mental incompetency when mattered most.

    So, for me, LCW is not amongst the great player as portrait otherwise by many. No W-cup medal no Olympic gold when u had the chance which comes to shows that LCW is not that greatlah!

    No w-cup no Olympic gold equivalent to; happy retirement soon...!

  2. Hello bro..LCW maybe equivalent or little bit down compare ti Lin Dan..but dont't forget, in history i think no player cam compete with Lin Dan skills, Speed, Power,jumping and pace.LD in own class and technique which so difficult to other player can reach that level.. If have LD in badminton..same as Ronaldinho in football..(look at personal individual character) LCW already amongs in world class player..

    1. Ayo yo bro,

      At that moment of time(19-17) speed, power, jumping or pace was not the argument. LCW failed in his mental skills to finish off Lin Dan

      All LCW needed was two points but Lin Dan gave LCW the humble pie plus take-away with four "mountain-ness" points.

      what say you?

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.
