Yasmin's commercials

I really love the late Yasmen's commercials. Yasmen’s commercials touching on issues of real multiracial Malaysians which always carrying messages of racial harmony and familial ties. I made to understand that she started her moviemaking career by volunteering to make commercials for free for a clients who lacked the funds. I attach some of her commercials here:

Rest in Peace & Alfathihah

This morning as usual, I woke up and read the i-google with The Star and NST on frontpage. One, a talented storyteller and film director, Yasmen Ahmad passed away. I personally like Yasmen's films - "Rabun" 2003, "Sepet" (2004), "Gubra" (2006), "Mukhsin" (2006), "Muallaf" (2008) and Talentime (2009) - all with the openness in addressing social issues. A week before 'hari raya' we could see her creativity in many Petronas's commercials. REST IN PEACE AND AL-FATIHAH Second, our beloved friend Mohd Afendi Tajudin passed away on July 25, 2009 as he was involved in a car-motorcycle accident while he was on his way to one's frien d wedding. REST IN PEACE AND AL-FATIHAH

Dari Newark ke Edinburgh

Pastikan peralatan dalam keadaan baik Musim Panas :: Newark-Notthinghamshire. Persiapan telah dibuat untuk perjalanan ke Edinburgh--peta; "Travel guide book" Scotland dan Edinburgh; kamera; dan lens dalam keadaan baik.  Di kemuncak Arthur's Seat Dari rumah Khairizan @Soul di Newark, kami memulakan perjalanan ke utara UK. Tempat yang dituju adalah kota Edinburgh, ibu negeri Scotland. Bertolak pada awal pagi dalam jam 9.00. Perjalanan yang mengambil masa kira-kira 6 jam sejauh 430km yang melalui bandar-bandar kecil. Edinburgh adalah bandar yang kami paling gemari di UK! It is a must visit place. Bandar yang cantik dan seakan boleh rasa damainya. Rasa macam tidak mahu balik! Kalau balik hendak datang lagi. Dalam hati "kalau sambung belajar di sini pun seronok juga--University of Edinburgh", "kalau pejabat di sini tidak di tutup dulu kan seronok". Jiwa penuh dengan angan-angan yang cukup jauh. Begitulah rasanya sambil menghirup udara segar Ar

Dari Cambridge ke Newark

Newark My friend Khairizan @Soul is her nickname in a biking forum. I knew her through superbiking interest. We told our Soul that we are going to arrive at her place between 7.00 and 8 p.m. The landmarks were very simple..the kubur and traffic lights. I found the kubur and traffic lights but not the house so called '911' for help. Thanks to her for providing temp at berteduh for 2 nights...thanks Soul for your great hospitality! and and not to forget, the dinners...:-) From Soul's house, next morning we depart for Drayton Manor Park which is 100 km from Newark. That's because we wanted to bring our kids to enjoy Thomas Land, the place of Thomas and his friends - James, Gordon, Hendry, Emelli, Fat Controller etc etc etc. Kids should know them better! When we arrived there we saw people already queuing up but the lines were moving quite fast. We waited for less than 15 minutes and finally we got our tickets. The kids first saw the big-Gordon.

Dari Geneva ke Cambridge

Easter holiday :: Cambridge. Regardless of how the world around it changes, the Europe maintains its traditional summer close-down – for a month! For me, it means no meetings I have to attend. It also means this is the best time for me to take a long break... hola ! We had our final check of the important things during our two-week on the road trip – Euros and Pounds of course!, ferry and hotel bookings and routes to take. We booked our ferry operated by P&O from Calais-Dover-Calais totalled Euro90.00. It may sound cheap BUT that's OK if you are willing to take the 3.15 a.m's ferry. Our two-week tour covers Ashford -Cambridge-Newark- Thamworth -Edinburgh-Glasgow-Northern Wales-Walton on Thames-London-Paris. Ashford Reached Ashford at 8.00am. All seemed quiet. The major attraction in Ashford is the McArthur and Glen Outlet. Frankly, that was our second time to the outlet. Pretty much the same thing except on the middle part of outlet, they had already built a
