Pahang's Jalaluddin eager to stamp mark

Jalaluddin Jaafar is known for being a one-club player but the 38-year-old veteran's CV remains incomplete as missing is a Malaysia Cup medal. Pekan-born Jalaluddin, who signed with Pahang in 1997 after guiding their state Malaysia Games team to the football gold medal in the 1996 edition on home soil, is desperate to win the trophy which has eluded him throughout his career.

The closest he has come to lifting the trophy was in 1997 when Pahang, then coached by Dane Jorgen E. Larson, were beaten 1-0 by Selangor.

Now, after 16 years, Jalaluddin, who has played over 400 games for Pahang, is daring to dream big again after helping his team secure a two-goal cushion from the semi-final first leg last week against Sarawak. They play the second leg at the State Stadium in Kuching on Saturday.

  1. Something tells me that Pahang will still make it to the finals despite losing the return leg match.

    The s'wak goalkeeper during the first leg showed inconsistencies in his approach towards certain situations. If the antics by the goalkeeper continuous then they can be assured of getting eliminated.
    The antics shown by the GK gives me the mix feelings, whether it was done intentionally or otherwise - SPRM must watch this closely. The approaches and actions shown by the GK should warrant an investigation, in my opinion.

    By the way, i'm not that interested to watching Malaysian local football. However, i still do it and want to know because of the other elements surrounding it - Match fixing!

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.
