Dear Malaysians Ad

I don't usually feature ads but this one's briliant.

How To Steal Like An Artist

Austin Kleon gives ridiculously good advice to anyone who wants to be creative. Down to earth and extremely practical, anyone who wants to create any form of art can benefit from a read.

Happy Malaysia Day!

I know it's not quite 12am yet, but I'm so happy reading about the ISA abolition and law reforms that I just thought I'd send this out.

As a Malaysian and a lawyer, this means so, so much to me: it feels like the end of a dark era.
What comes next will hopefully be enlightenment, not immediate and universal but one which we must take steps to promote slowly but surely.

The abolishment of the ISA will not solve all our problems overnight, but it is a step in the right direction. Credit where it's due: thank you Najib.

Tomorrow I celebrate!

And this is belated, but appropriate too: Happy Merdeka, my fellow citizens!

I cannot even remember the last time my mental endurance was stretched that far.
I am now struggling to process and digest what has happened over the last week, and its ripple effect on my family and my psyche.

I am now forced to think, reflect and consider carefully what I want in life, both in the short and long term, as well as what I trully value. I hope to find the time to do so in the following weeks.

It was a challenging experience, but in midst of its mad haze I gained immense strength and profound new insights. It’s true what Nietzsche said: what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. And perhaps a little wiser too.

October Picks: Parah & WAMM Screening

I wrote-up about an amazing play called Parah at WAMM not too long ago. Apparently the play by Alfian Sa’at will be re-staged at klpac in late October. If you missed its staging at the Annexe Gallery, you should definitely try to catch it this time. Watch this space and for more updates!

Before that though, as part of the Actor’s Studio’s Fused series, WAMM will be screening two local indie movies (Love & Luksaah and Damaged Kung Fu) along with a live set by local band ‘Once Upon A Time There Was A Sausage Named Bob’ on 2nd October 2011, 2.30pm at the Actors Studio, Lot 10 Rooftop. Make sure you catch this event, which is by donation of RM10 (that’s cheaper than one mainstream movie ticket guys).

For more info, visit WAMM.
