Sex in the city

Those were the tweets of a good friend Jonathan Fernandez, whom I had the pleasure working alongside during his stint with The Malay Mail several years back.

For the record, Jonathan has participated in the Malaysia Games (Sukma) in the past.

Meanwhile, 'Haresh Says' - as published in The Malay Mail today - speaks about 'Sex in the city'.

"Hosting the Sukma is not a birthday party. 

Just like the conversion of a minor Bill and the proposed implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) that have courted debate recently, proper groundwork should have been done by the powers-that-be. They must think thoroughly and leave no stone unturned.

But we tend to take things for granted, relying on what little we know and only react when an unfortunate incident happens.

Sadly, some will treat it as another day in office only to return home to watch reruns of Sex and the City."

HD says: It's called Malaysia Games or Sukan Malaysia (Sukma). Not Sukma Games.

  1. Very vulnerable situation for all of them. The failure of the society to intergrade and participate in the growing-up of our children should be the main concern here...

    Anybody for that matter can be vulnerable - but, this is where our wisdom comes into play. Sadly the animal part of menkind seems to stand-out instead of otherwise. What contrubute to these? What happend to all the philosophical doctrine about living...?

    There are many ways to go about it...but, we always like to do the wrong and the bad. People are even loosing the basic moral values nowdays. - One doseant need to be a saint to understand all these...

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.

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.
