I still can't believe Bernama sports editor Zulhilmi Supaat passed away this morning.
He is a familiar face in the scene and all of us in the industry have many memories of him.
I know him as a family man. He never misses any of the annual National Sports Council media games and his children will always tag along. And they would win prizes too!Thank you Zulhilmi for all your contributions. I will miss your funny Facebook postings.
My sincere condolences to your family.
Rest in peace brother for you will be sorely missed.

Who is Muhammad Aiman referring to? I wonder which sport is the team from. I think I may know which team but I'll keep my thoughts to myself. This particular paragraph interests me: Bagi aku senang, boikot jer, takyah bagi publisiti langsung kalau itu cara dia. Dia meroyan takpe, tapi kalu player mengeluh, merungut dia nak saman media. Acaner tu? Bila ditulis benda positif takde pun share artikel tu di platform media sosial masing-masing, bila tulis negatif laju jer mengugut ... Sue the media? Well people are free to exercise their rights. If its defamatory, the 'victim' has every right to take legal action. Otherwise, don't waste the courts' time lah . What Aiman said is true. When credit is given when due, it is taken for granted and appears to be a birth right.

Seorang lagi bekas perenang yang enggan namanya disiarkan memberitahu Malaysiakini bahawa dia pernah melihat seorang jurulatih beronani di hadapan seorang perenang
Several new and would-be parents are crying foul over Tung Shin Hospital's policy that sees a paediatrician on call, instead of a chosen paediatrician, attending to a newborn upon delivery. It is a talking point among parents who claim the policy by the Kuala Lumpur-based private hospital would mean paying for the services of a doctor which is not of their choice. Parents alleged the paediatrician of choice is only available after the baby is discharged. Some of these parents have welcomed their newborn while others are anxiously waiting for the arrival of their bundle of joy. They all insist they should have the right of choice as they are paying for the services. For the record, the hospital's administration had put up notices of its policy at its premises. Upon clarification, new mothers and/or new parents were informed they will be able to see their paediatrician of choice for their babies' following check-up. New and soon-to-be parents
