That's the social trend now when someone posts something delicious they had onto Facebook and friend reply with 'tak ajak' or boh jio (in Hokkien).
Initially, that's what I want to say when I was not invited for this year's Malaysian Chess Championship 2017.
First off I have to admit I am grateful, even though there was initial hint that I was to be invited, in the end that did not materialise. Grateful because it is pretty tiring travelling that far and I probably want to save my nowadays limited energy for the coming Malaysian Chess Festival.
In the past, I would have gone to the national level Championship voluntarily on my on cost. There would be a big deal of regret if I missed it, but those days are gone now especially with rising cost of maintaining my own website.
Still, that does not mean I won't go to any other chess event. I will continue going to events that sponsors me.
