Lulu Was Wondering Where All The Youth and Sports Ministry Money Went To

It really saddened Lulu's heart to read that the Special Olympics Malaysia squad could not find local sponsors to help ease the burden in the event.

Special Olympics Malaysia chairman Joseph Lau Tee Sun said was deeply disappointed that no state or federal agency he approached was willing to sponsor even a “fraction” of the expenses. Even Malaysia Airlines turned down his request for assistance.
The total expenses for the trip works out to RM150,000, including food, accommodation, training and sports attire. Eight coaches and two officials will accompany the athletes.

“Since early this year, I couriered and faxed letters to the Youth and Sports Ministry, the Education Ministry and the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry,” he said, adding that only the Youth and Sports Ministry sent a letter dated Aug 8 stating that it had no funds.

sigh... at first, Lulu was wondering, where all the money could have gone.

Then, a lightbulb flashed!


ah....
Sad, isn't it?

VOTE for Opposition.

Even if the opposition's candidate does not strike your fancy, it will deny the present government a big majority.

you must understand, actually the government is quite smart, why spend money on something that will not bring any gold back.

why spend money on something that will not bring any gold back in your own personal pocket.

Bodohland hasn't what it takes to be fair. Overflowing vanity(ever promoted) sees to that.

Ms Lulu.. you forgot another very important picture.... The england picture. The duno what changgih maya training center convert from some research center that will cost dunno how many millions English Pounds to make happen! (This I tak boleh tahan. ENGLAND!! ENGLISH POUNDS!! WHY AH?? We having an elite football team playing in all the english premier where we can make money ah!? What a crap!)

So, of course the Youth and Sports Ministry has no funds. Infact, I am surprised that this YS Ministry is still around.. with all the mismanaged funds and God knows what else, they should be ON FIRE!

Sports, wrt the management of it, went sleazy many decades ago. Just consider, "Sports Toto". It has become a pursuit promoted to the umpteen degree via the seeking of support ever so often even from the public as well. Like a case of "No money, wanna play ball" open legitimacy. Another favorite opiate of the people besides religiosity.

Bolehland has also lost its sense of shame also in the field of Sports. Those of the older generation especially could easily understand that the original spirit of Sports, as a means of character building, was in the participation, not in that total absorption with that "win at all cost" thing....something that have driven some international athletes to resort to drugs for.

One might add that much of the drive to put Bolehland on the map is driven by the wrong sort of vainglorious motivation because essentially it has lost its bearing and understanding of real and proper values but fallen readily for the shallow and showy addictions so expected of the cheaper and common national psychology(like any banana republic would)that's so appealing to a Neanderthal manner of perception and attitude.
