'What are we fighting for?'

OLYMPIC Council of Malaysia (OCM) honorary secretary Datuk Sieh Kok Chi Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) honorary secretary Datuk Sieh Kok Chi (pic) has never heard Country Joe & the Fish sing the Vietnam Song.

The anti-war song was a hit at the 1969 Woodstock music festival.

Nevertheless, both Country Joe and Kok Chi share a similar view.

The retired civil engineer and former national water polo athlete has come under fire in recent times as certain quarters are plotting his downfall ahead of OCM’s annual general meeting and election on June 22.

He is not enjoying the ‘war’ within.

“What are we fighting for?” questioned Kok Chi.

And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn....

  1. Tell your old buddy to take to easy. It appears his time is up. Let others continue his good work. It is no rocket science. Its just a voluntary sports official position. Why would he want to defend his position fighting tooth & nail. He is beginning to give enough reason for the authorities to look into the the truth of the expose' Would be interesting to see the outcome. He appears to be screaming 'i'm innocent!" even befpre he is called to answer any formal accusation. Please do your friend a favour & tell him to think deep inside himself and ask... Is this how he wants to go down in history...

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.

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.

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.
   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.
