A Great Loss

Every year without fail I have always looked forward to the Petronas TV commercials shown during every major celebration...Hari Raya, Chinese New Year, Deepavali and Hari Kemerdekaan. So it was with much sadness that I read about the passing of Yasmin Ahmad who directed these short clips. Her commercials never fail to make me chuckle or go teary-eyed because they are so heart-warming. I have watched the movie Sepet and loved it. The late Yasmin Ahmad was truly a one-in-a million talent and it's sad that we will not be able to enjoy more of her works of art.

Here are some of my favourites:









This one is shown in Singapore, get some tissues ready...


And this one is really sweet:

Hi. Glad to come across your blog.

I also respect Yasmin Ahmad very much and have watched a few of her films. So far, Mukhsin is my favorite.
