Congratulations Baljit, Jesvin

National hockey player Baljit Singh tied the knot with his sweetheart Jesvin Kaur in Ipoh on Saturday.

Baljit and Jesvin then hosted a dinner reception for family members and friends yesterday.

It was good fun catching up with the likes of fellow journos Aftar Singh, Jugjet Singh and Satwant Singh Dhaliwal.

It was also good to meet several folks from the hockey fraternity including national coach Paul Revington and his lovely wife Sandy, Arul Selvaraj and Chua Boon Huat.

I bet it was a culture shock for Revington - with the many colours, dancing and singing - in a good way. hopefully.

In fact, Baljit's siblings - T-Team footballer Pritam, Nirmal and Dr Kiran - kept the crowd entertained with their moves on the stage.

The night ended with Baljit's elder sister Kiran gaving a speech on behalf of the family, while trying to hold back tears, as she sung praises and sent out warm wishes to the couple.

To Baljit and Jesvin, may you have a blessed journey together. Cheers!

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.
