  1. How bad Malaysians can be compared to the Singaporeans??

    Singaporeans the journalist especially are indeed considered to come and grow from a so called better education and social system. Maybe because they feel that their social and economic standing is better off than us, they can insult us, forgetting their root existence.

    Not only they've gained and achieved much economically and socially but, they've also lost their way morally in doing so.

    They can go around telling the world that they provide legal prostitution and gambling hub for everyone to enjoy and do business. What do you say of that??!

    I wonder if one day the people of this nation will not know their fathers and only being brought up by their mothers.

    It's indeed a very shameful policy put in place by this nation, which can reflect on the people. No achievement is greater when the moral aspect of it is compromised and also displayed legally - truly sadistic for the young generation.

    Keeping that in mind, please think very carefully before we ought to say things about others.

    Do some soul searching and reflect on yourself and the system you live in and adopt proudly before you want to degrade someone for some sadistic trill.

    Improper family values can surely be a cause to sadistic behavior in society

TM to pull out from M-League?

2018 will end in about two weeks.

The conversations have been consistently about "bad economy" (or to some the 3Rs - rights, race and religion) since May 9 happened.

And now there are talks of Telekom Malaysia pulling out as the title sponsor of the M-League. This despite having signed a lucrative deal with the guardians of the Malaysian football league - dubbed as the "biggest agreement in Malaysian sports history worth RM480 million (RM60 million over eight years).

On Feb 1, NST reported:

Telekom Malaysia's (TM) Unifi brand is the new title sponsor for the Malaysian Super League and Malaysia Cup in a collaboration with Football Malaysia LLP (FMLLP) until 2025.

TM’s premier convergence brand Unifi will also co-sponsor the FA Cup as the eight-year agreement, beginning this season, marks TM’s continued support towards local football development and uplifting the standard of sports in the country.

With the sponsorship, the league is now known as “Unifi Liga Super Malays…

Elite athlete takes Sports Minister to task; asks what are his vision and mission for sports?

UPDATE (11.13am): The National Sports Council director general Datuk Ahmad Shapawi Ismail issued a statement regarding Irfan's outburst.

Full statement below:



ORIGINAL POST

He has broken the national record 13 times and brought honour to Malaysia at the SEA Games and Asian Championships.
Yet, discuss thrower Irfan Shamsuddin has been left heart broken as he resorted to venting his frustration on Instagram, demanding to know why his coach's contract has not been renewed and his plans to train abroad shelved. 
And the national athlete has placed Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman in the spot - a move that is rarely seen prior the May 9 General Election.
In the emotional posting, Irfan wrote: "Just want to ask you Syed Saddiq, first you dissolved the Podium Programme. Then my coach's contract has been terminated with immediate effect after I broke the national record 13 times, won three SEA Games gold medals and a silver medal at the Asian Championships ac…

Bro representing Youth and Sports Ministry?

Well that's what many people are saying.


But are they missing the point and barking up the wrong tree?


To be fair, let's look at the original Facebook posting by eSports Malaysia that made its rounds and riled many up.


Syed Abdullah Syed Abdul Rahman, brother of the Youth and Sports Minister, was listed as the guest of honour at the Malaysia eSports selection for the 2019 SEA Games.





And the comments that followed were nothing but pleasant.
It should, however, be noted that no where in the posting above states that Syed Abdullah was representing the Youth and Sports Ministry or was he representing the minister, who happens to be his brother.
Unless it can be proven that the ministry had allowed Syed Abdullah to represent it (which is highly unlikely but then again anything is possible these days), it is fair to say the writer of the Facebook posting believed highlighting the minister's name could carry some weight and please the sponsors but backfired instead.
