Paulus quits BAM

A national coach calls it quits while later in the day, the BA of Malaysia's glass door apparently shatters and collapses.

The rest is up to your imagination.

National doubles men coach Paulus Firman confirmed he will be leaving Kuala Lumpur soon. He cited "family problems" after having spent some 10 months with the national stable.

Read more of what Paulus had to say in Mailsport today.

HD says: All the best coach.


  1. Why all the fuss!

    BA Malaysia always seemed to be in the spotlight, even for some routine matter.
    Why all the fuss? Is it not normal for coaches to resign willingly in their profession? Moreover, for those coaches who could not make their presents felt - Ten months in the job, still did not bring about the desired results - To improve our doubles players.

    To be frank even the current top coaches at the helm are also very incapable in their role when comes to producing new talents.
    Besides coaching the top players, coaches must also have the ability to develop and produce new players with the same objectives - Playing ability set by all the top players around the world must be used as the benchmark when developing players in stages.

    Till today, coaches in BAM are not able to carry out this task. So why do we simply want to run to their aide, we must treat it as a normal practice in a profession. We must stay focus and demand the favored out come in their role as coaches.

    Give them the due respect, only when they are capable in developing and producing high standard future players.

    HSKL says: Give the due respect, where its needed.

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.
