It was painful to watch...

...Trent Milton scoring a goal in the dying minutes as Australia bagged the Azlan Shah Cup with the final score of 3-2.

However, the Malaysians were the first to start the ball rolling thanks to Faizal Saari. Australia equalised through Nicholas Budgeon and later took the lead through Carig Boyne's effort.

Tengku Ahmad Tajuddin made it 2-2 for the host team but it wasn't enough as the team from Down Under stole the limelight in front of a packed stadium in the final minutes of the match.

This is Malaysia's fourth appearance in the final but they have yet to win the tournament.

It was also painful to watch the friendly (football) match between Malaysia and Saudi Arabia at the Shah Alam Stadium yesterday.

The Harimau Malaya hardly threatened the visitors as the Saudis were two goals up at half time courtesy of Yousef Alsalem and Yahya Alshehri.

K.Rajagobal's lads put on a better show in the second half and were rewarded with a goal thanks to Safiq Rahim.

Nevertheless, Saudi's Naif Hazazi scores the third goal of the match in the 89th minute while Hamdan Alhamdan ensured a comfortable lead in the dying minutes as Saudi Arabia won 4-1.

Two contrasting performances by two different teams.

  1. Hoki : Kalah tapi tak malu.

    Bola : Nak muntah

    Hoki : Revolusi Paul Revington dalam masa yang singkat

    Bola : Tong kosong bila diketuk, bunyinya kuat

    Hoki : Pemilihan berdasarkan prestasi semasa; pemain baru atau pemain lama yang kembali on-form diberi peluang yang sama

    Bola : Saya tahu pemain saya

    Hoki : Modern hockey play. Sampaikan kepantasan berfikir pun dilatih.

    Bola : Kehabisan idea sampaikan game senang dibaca, bola senang hilang

    Hoki : Tak sangka ada channel 802

    Bola : Tukar channel, pergi 802

    p/s Akhirnya pakai juga jersey warna kuning - tapi tentu ramai peminat yang rasa tak berbaloi bayar RM200.


    1. Hahaahaaaa.... you made my day, encik Kamarul!

  2. Datuk K. Rajagobal says there are no strikers in the M-League. Why not try Pahang's Fauzi Roslan who is the second highest top scorer in the Super League and Sarawak's Bobby Gonzales who can't seem to stop scoring?

    Why not give them a chance? Would be would a try ... instead of complaining and relying on the same old faces

    1. & don't forget Khyril & Azamudin Akil, who r strikers for their state teams but played out of position as wingers/wide mdfielders for Msia. Coach Raja's striking option has always been Safee & Matyo, even though they're injured/out of form. No wonder Msia "don't have strikers available".


    2. One another point, look how energetic Shafiq was in the field, aspecially when he now have a competitor for the attacking midfielder spot.

      A practice we should have against other divas (players and coach) as well.

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.
