KJ's 100 days in office: Awakening not a prob, it's more than fun and games

Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin insists the soon-to-be-launched book on his father-in-law, former prime minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, will neither help nor frustrate his cause as he seeks to defend his post during the Umno elections in October.

Meanwhile, the Rembau MP spends some time speaking about his 100 days in office - as he spoke about claims that he is too eager for changes, presumption he is spending more time on sports than youth, on making popular statements and his aspirations.

Read 'Awakening not a problem' and 'It's more than fun and games' in The Malay Mail today.


  1. Can KJ succeed in his quest to bring about the needed changes and new dimension? or, will he like the others submit to the culture of "bodek and ampu"
    I, wonder whether young enthusiastic individuals like KJ and others can withstand the onslaught they might face from all the stakeholders at the state and national level associations. So far, it looks like KJ has stepped on the breaks in matters related to FAM affairs.

    It's a very difficult system at work for the past three decades. Even the great Tun Mahathir, failed as a leader when it comes to sports, don't we think so?? - maybe he knew there was no hope to improve compared to his times.
    With many more shortfalls and missing pieces of puzzles, things will be very-very difficult not only for KJ, but also others who aspire to do the same.

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.
