Happy Malaysia Day!

 
Let’s take a cue sometimes from the P. Ramlee movies of old and Lat cartoons carrying multi-cultural depictions that didn’t offend anyone. Would a similar scene in a movie made today be not offensive as well?

  1. Right after the 13th General Election, there were all kinds of verbal attack towards certain race, for not supporting a certain political party.'Politics in Malaysia has become very ugly to an extent, all sort of name calling and labeling seem to be the main title'.

    The society are being driven to a direction of lies, deceit and hatred - most often coming from the, so called "learned" people.
    Why do we have to become so desperate and stoop so low to convince the masses.??? - with the exception of the Noble one's.

    'Whatever conflict should there be, we must not allow it to reach to a stage of decay, living mental blocks among the communities'.

    Nevertheless, we're also frequently calling for unity, when national events are held. - how do we construe these callings??
    Unity is not a bargaining chip, where we can toss it around and put a price tag and bring it to the street for sale.- it must be accompanied with dignity and good values.- spirituality must also be prevailed at all times.

    ' However, my hopes are to see Malaysians, becoming noble in their manifestation and conduct through their leadership.

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…

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.
