SSTMI bowling alley to be fixed

Remember my  exposé on the condition of sporting facilities at the Tunku Mahkota Ismail Sports School (SSTMI) as published here?

During my visit to the school, I noticed the bowling alley was not in working order, the hockey turf was in bad condition (pic) and there was a table-tennis table in the squash court, among others.

Well it looks like some good came out from it after all.

I received a pleasant phone call on Friday informing me that apparently a letter has been issued by the Education Ministry and that officials from the Ministry and a company met on the same day at 3pm in Putrajaya to ensure the bowling alley at the sports school in Bandar Penawar will begin to function again.

"All things are in order but the witch-hunt continues as some folks in the Ministry are still eager to find out who spoke to the Press about the conditions in the school," said a source from the Ministry.

Better late than never and this is certainly a good start.

HD says: Hope all the facilities at SSTMI will be in working order soon.

    The bowling alley is so outdated so it will be pouring money down the drain to upgrade it. Would it be better to better to reuse the squash courts instead of using it as a store? (table -tennis table in squash court). Also they should put a roof up for the swimming pools- can be used more frequently, less maitenance and usage of chemicals (maitenance contractor would not be happy) as algae growth would be slower. The Pengetua was also so keen to have the lawn bowl turf reused........

  2. Tahniah HD! Pak Abu Hensem

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.
