Percintaan Tan Hong Ming, dir: Yasmin Ahmad, 2007
In Singapore, I was introduced to Yasmin’s controversial full-length feature “Sepet”. While in Malaysia, I watched her subsequent equally wonderful movies. In her capacity as creative director at Leo Burnett, she directed some ads for Petronas which they aired every time Malaysia celebrated its independence day. One of them is the one you’ve just seen. She died suddenly last year and her fans mourned the lost of a brave voice that dared to show to the hypocrites that things (such as love) can be so incredibly simple.
While doing my work in a local cafe, the thought of her just happened to cross my mind and I thought it would be good to pay a little tribute.
