Foriegn students shying away from Malaysia

http://www.mmail.com.my/sites/default/files/frontpage_25.pngIt was a company set up to be a one-stop centre for foreign students. The company - Education Malaysia Global Services (EMGS) - is to market and promote Malaysia as an education hub.

Yet, foreign students are crying foul over the delays in visa application since the company was set up in February.

Players in the industry claim loss of business while others question the monopoly practiced by the company which was set up by the then Higher Education Ministry.

Read the special report in The Malay Mail today.

Meanwhile, senior officials in the Malaysian Hockey Confederation are unaware of certain matters pertaining Paul Revington's decision to quit as national team coach. Read more here.

As for football, the FA of Malaysia's (FAM) decision to reward RM1,000 to fans who nab other fans that misbehave during the FA Cup final could backfire.

Fans ridiculed the need to be policed by their fellow supporters while lawyers said the incentives - despite its noble intention - is open to abuse, as reported in Mailsport.

'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.

Why?

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.

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.
