Another economic crisis? 'Endless possibilities'

The ringgit is at a three-year low against the US dollar, having shed over 7 per cent in value versus the greenback since the start of the year.

While developed nations are heading up, developing countries have gone in the opposite direction; MSCI’s Emerging Market Index showed a loss of 13 per cent in equity since the start of the year.

Worryingly for observers, this is the biggest the gap between developed and emerging markets has been since the 1997 Asian financial crisis.

Meanwhile, remember the 1Malaysia and One Israel debate?

Well it looks like Malaysia has been accused of plagiarising another Israeli motto - Endless Possibilities.

Three years ago, certain politicians said the link between 1Malaysia and One Israel propounded by the opposition was just a lie.

Today, the Prime Minister's Office said the government came out with “Endless Possibilities” as its new global theme months before Israel released a similar tagline.

As Jebat Must Die said:  "please google the phrase first before giving it to the PM for him to announce; this might avoid any embarrassment."

Oh, apparently Mongolia too has a similar tagline - Endless Possibilities.

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…

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.
