OCM Annual Dinner and Awards Night 2014

The 22nd OCM Annual Dinner and Awards Night was successfully organized on Saturday, 13th December 2014 at 8.00 pm at the Tan Sri Hamzah Arena, Wisma OCM, Kuala Lumpur. The Guest of Honour was YB Encik Khairy Jamaluddin, Minister of Youth and Sports Malaysia. There were around 550 guests, comprising representatives of National Sports Associations, government sports organizations, inductees of OCM Hall of Fame, sponsors and supporters.
Famemas with Tunku Tan Sri Imran.
 In his opening address, YAM Tunku Tan Sri Imran ibni Almarhum Tuanku Ja’afar, President of OCM stated as follows “The over dependency of most of the NSAs on government funding has reduced their motivation to generate their own income for their own development. Government is the biggest financial contributor to Sport in this country. However, in addition to being the major fund provider of NSAs, MSN has also assumed the role of being the deliverer of elite sport in Malaysia, carrying out the roles and activities that were carried in the past by the NSAs”.
Famemas with YB. Khairy Jamaluddin.
 YAM Tunku then called on the Hon. Minister of Youth and Sports, for MSN to consider handing the baton back to the NSAs, and assume its rightful role of being the facilitator of elite sports and supporter of the NSAs. He felt that such a move would certainly motivate the NSAs to work harder and have a more meaningful contribution to the development of their respective sport.
Table for Famemas.
 YAM Tunku added “I have said many times in the past. The buck stops with the NSA’s. They are responsible for all successes and failures in their sport.” He then appealed to the Ministry of Youth and Sport to divert some of the Government’s funds to build up the capacity of the NSA’s is of the utmost urgency in order to prevent a serious deterioration in sports in the country.
Famemas Exco.
Hon. Encik Khairy Jamaluddin, the Minister of Youth and Sports, in his speech said that it is his vision to make Malaysia a strong sporting nation. He added that no strong sporting nation practiced a centralized system of sports development, except in communist countries and as such, he was prepared to reduce the role of MSN and pass back the powers to the National Sports Associations and the State Sports Associations. He called on all stake-holders of sport to work together and with him, to bring sports development in Malaysia to a higher level. The Minister stated “It is important to look forward and see what can we do over the next 4 years...let us work together!”.

In Malaysia there are 3 Sports Supporters Groups. In a nutshell, they are:
Ultras Malaya.
1. Ultras Malaya 

 With more than 5000 voluntary members spread out across many states, they predominantly cheer for football and perhaps hockey only. They have been known to be aggressive in that they dare to challenge under performing FAM.
TM Malaysia.
2.  Team Malaysia 

Mainly comprising of staff of Telekom Malaysia,they will cheer for games, under instruction from their companies. TM management also set out mobile cheer squads by giving stadium tickets to Malaysian students based overseas, to save travel costs.
3.Famemas Supporters Club

A small but closely knit multi racial club that consists of a group of volunteers who plan their own cheer programmes. They cheer at multi sports events eg Sea Games and Asian Games. From event to event, they work with corporate firms to subsidise their cheer activities. Each of these groups have their own inherent strengths. At times they work together for the betterment of sports in the country..

I was seated a row below those two Vietnamese girls with Tok Mo. That was because the Malaysian supporters sections were all filled to the brim. After the rain started I moved to the upper terraces to protect myself from the rain. But the section of 1000 Vietnamese supporters didnt move.
Mr. Lee & TokMo
That was when the commotion started and a few Malaysian supporters started attacking the Vietnamese group. Water bottles were thrown at the area when Tok Mo and I were once seated. Some supporters from both sides started running away. FRU officials moved in to keep order.
Shame on the few soccer hooligans who mar Msia image at Vietnam game. Now we can expect same reception at MyDinh Stadium for 11 Dec return game...
After the match, a small fire was lit which was quickly put off. Supporters stayed behind the stadium and continued chanting. Some cracker missiles were fired into the air.
TheVietnamese Supporters did provoke us by showing the middle finger... and the way they danded... as claimed by some friend who were there.
It was a sad nite for Malaysian soccer. We thought English hooliganism happened far far away but this time, it happened in our shores...

Celoteh Captain Shafari - Si Dia 2 Part 2

My jogging today was cut short due to the heavy downpour. Target was to run 7 rounds Oasis Square but God has a better plan. Got to stop after 3 laps. 

Hey.. I am back into serious running. Last week I ran 7 km and by 1 Jan, my aim is to run 10 km within 70 minutes. So you guys who have been running...better look over your shoulder... I could be just a step behind you. 

Terengganu is getting the brunt of the monsoon. Floods were every where. But then... in the East Coast, they take floods as a fiesta.. but not in Klang Valley where it is considered as a disaster.
Captain Shafari.
This DLCW case is no more a hot topic...sudah berkurangan. However I got something that I should share with you all. It was during the Malaysian Gold Open last year where DLCW was facing Tommy Sugiarto in the finals MS. Before the match, I overheard someone right behind me telling that it would be 16 16. “Aiyah ini game Tommy kena 16 16 lah”. It was true that in the 1 set, DLCW won 21-16. OMG! I was sitting with a few Famemas members in KLBA.. and very near to Wong Mew Choo. She seemed not to concentrate on the match but was busy talking over the handphone... non stop. 

Well.. I was telling myself, if my spouse were to battle it out in the court, then I would be sitting at the edge of the seat. But not WMChoo. She was very composed and kept on talking over her handphone. DLCW would always glance/ took a look at WMChoo. To me... wow.. DLCW ni jeles orang nya. Then the game ended at 21-17 in DLCW’s favour. And the 17th point that Tommy got was a simple mistake made by DLCW when his net play tersangkut/terkandas. So guys... 21-16 and 21-17. The chinaman who had told 16 16.. could have made some good money. haha.. this is my story only.. ok. Could be coincident.
Mana satu Si Dia 2?
There is something positive when Si Dia 2 tak layan my advances on her. I took running seriously cos I think she didnt like my pot belly...but then mana ada awek muda dan cun pula yang suka kat orang tua macam saya kan? Rambut dah putih... dan drive Saga with company’s logo...where got standard huh... 

Its is Ok... it is alright, come on Captain... fight! fight! fight! 

Oh yeah... fighting a losing game. Tak ada guna nya.... It is not that I am giving up but I took it as a challenge... a positive one. So what if Si Dia 2 tak mahu. I must “reinvent” my self and make myself to be proud of me. hahaha .... tu dia, semangat bergelora tu. 

Actually I do feel lonely at times. and terjumpa Si Dia 2 tu was at a time when I really need someone...and returning back from Incheon after 7 hectic days of shoutings and being with good companions... yeah... she came into me. As I have said...she is like a photocopy of Si Dia 1. And I told myself after Si Dia 1 sudah kahwin... the next Si Dia.. I will not hesitate to “lock herself in my heart’. hahah it sounds macam cerita HIndi,,, but it is true.. I told myself that... and I would not waste anymore time.. must confess cepat cepat so that either one tak terluka. Tapi now.. saya juga yang terluka.. padan muka right. Kalau Si Dia 1 yang baca ni... she’ll say “Served you right Capt”. Oh.. I wished I could hear her voice now. 

Ooh... sudah lewat... got to go to dobhy, ambil pakaian.. and Saturday, my big family (siblings, in laws, nephews and nieces) will be traveling to Mata Air Perlis to attend the wedding of my nephew and Malaysian cycling coach, Harnizam Basri. 

Till next time... adios guys..
