Getting sucked in by rotten food

Sadly, consumerism in this country is taken very lightly.
Only a handful of us are willing to speak up against retailers who see no harm in selling substandard foodstuff.

The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry can aid by conducting regular inspections and ensure retailers — from sundry shops to hypermarkets — sell quality items.

But it is us, as consumers, who have the ultimate say. We need to take charge of what we put in our stomach and in our households.

The quality of food sold should not be taken for granted.

Nevertheless, many tend to treat such matters lightly. After all, it is not as sensational as cows and condominiums or a fishy multi-million ringgit tuna project that failed.

It is the unscrupulous sellers who will have the last laugh for we are the suckers who will continue to fork out money for low quality food.

  1. 'Not only the foods are rotten, politics are rotten too.'

    The government has allowed these bad practices to flourish due to their policies which only gives the upper-hand to the business community. On the enforcement aspect, the relevant people are so ignorant and only care for their family and children - cows and fish.

    When the people in power simply can do things as they wish, what can we expect from them in protecting the interest of the masses?? They are to busy accumulating wealth illegally which has darkened their hearts leading to bad governance.

    When we place people in position from political backgrounds, they will only serve the interest of their politics, not the well being of the people. In Malaysia everything is politics. Malaysia is one country where the corrupt are put on stage as a leaders, to lead the people without feeling shame - corrupt practices.

    At the speed we're going, sooner or later, we will be a bankrupt country like Brazil, Argentina and Greece.

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.
