Tahniah Pahang!

FotoI was wrong in my 'ramalan'. Based on their current form and the team's build up especially throughout the Malaysia Cup, I thought Kelantan would defeat Pahang 2-0 in the final.

Instead, Pahang's Argentinean star Matias Conti (pic) scored the solitary goal of the match and it was enough for Pahang to clinch the title they last won in 1992.

It was a different Kelantan on the field, especially in the last 15 minutes of the match. Pahang clearly had more fire compared to the Red Warriors.

'Tok Gajah tamat kemarau 21 tahun' as reported by Harian Metro and Pahang ends 21-year wait, as reported in The Malay Mail today.

This marks the end of the 2013 season which, sadly, has been plagued with the same problems - players not being paid wages on time, claims of match-fixing, horrible playing ground, ticketing issues and fans lighting up flares at the stands.

It also saw changes within the FA of Malaysia - mainly Hamidin Amin replacing Azzudin Ahmad as the general-secretary. The season sees the rise of Pahang, Sarawak and Armed Forces have earned the respect and admiration of many while the turnout at the FA Cup final and Malaysia Cup final simply shows Malaysian football is a million-ringgit industry.

Selangor once again failed in its Mission 33 while there are those who hope Perak would do better next season.

  1. Congrats Pahang! I see great things in coach Dollah (with help of his all-time dynamic duo partner, brother Zainal too!) Congrats and congratsss!

  2. Few days before the final i left a comment saying that Pahang can win the cup. The reason being possibly due to the Kelantan players or the match officials. Obviously the Kelantan players ditched out a poor display, which gave Pahang the upper hand.
    There were many occasions where TRW players made wild clearance from their own half which comes to show there's something not right in their approach - Knowing well how they can handle situations before this.
    Besides that the linesmen at the Pahang site looked suspicious with his decision - Flagging against TRW players on many occasion - Dickson was complaining most of the time.

    So, with all these action and decision we can be sure there's some kind of "circus" and "magic" to let Pahang take the cup

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.
