B. Sathianathan's Deepavali do doubled as a housewarming party but the Press were not in a mood to party as discussions centred on Malaysia's prospects in December's AFF Suzuki Cup following the penalty shootout defeat to the Vietnam Under-23 side in the Merdeka Tournament.
So the subject of Sathianathan's contract which ends next month was raised but FAM general secretary Lt Jen (R) Datuk Azzuddin Ahmad was non-committal.
Let's wait for the AFF Cup. After all it was announced earlier that the AFF Cup is the key performance indicator for Sathianathan and team manager, YB Khairy Jamaluddin.
