I give a flying f!

We boast to be a so-called soon-to-be developed nation, have some of the tallest and biggest structures in the region and world.

Yet, we can't even get basics right - like enjoying uninterrupted water and telecommunication services.

Water disruption occurs on a daily basis in the Klang Valley.
Why must we subject ourselves to such incompetence?

Are we expected to console ourselves by saying: "Oh this is Malaysia lah" or brush issues aside by cynically saying "Malaysia Boleh"?

Are we supposed to whine and rant only to forget about such matters the next day?

Are we to adopt the 'tidak apa' attitude, hoping someone else will do the job?

Are we to leave the future of the nation to a bunch of incompetent individuals?

Are we to keep quiet if we were given certain forms of incentives (may it be cold hard cash or projects)?

Are we to allow our children to grow up in a confused, greedy and selfish environment?

Malaysians are bigger and better than this.

Politicians, corporations, and GLCs must realise they need us and not the other way round.

Their task is to serve us and not the other way round.

Seek the wisdom of our icons, rope in our talents and allow the participation of all to help the nation grow and prosper.

Above all, we demand to be treated right.

Why am I writing this?

Because I give a flying f!

'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…

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.

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.
