Ah, the Auditor General's Report

Also in contention was the RM2.94 million spent by the ministry in the promotion and publicity of National Youth Day 2012.

The report notes that RM1,111,927 was spent just on promotion and publicity while another RM1.6 million was spent on paying the K-Pop artistes UKiss, and Teen-Top and Dal Shabet.

The ministry also spent RM42,500 for 17 units of "robot-themed boards", RM42,466 for the accommodation of journalists and a hi-tea reception at the Marriot Hotel in Putrajaya, and another RM107,500 for bloggers to promote the event.

It has been noted as "high expenditure" by the auditor-general.

  1. KBS, seems to always be in the limelight, whenever auditors reports are out most of the time - sadly for some bad and sick reasons.
    Why are these bad and sick activities are being repeated, year after year?? Are they simply shameless,? knowing that the public will eventually come to know.
    Why are they still doing it, and what is the gov 's stand??
    Are they simply closing their eyes and ears and letting such sickness(misuse taxpayers money) to continue??

    It comes to show how, badly cultured are we when comes to governance - repetition at the highest order.
    Who should be blamed for all these - our politics or the man on the street??
    For me, its obviously the political doctrine that we practice, are the main reasons for losing one's pride and dignity by doing so.

    Well, lets wait and see, what is to come out off all these findings, and how the people at the top going to address the issues - looking forward anxiously as taxpayer.

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.
