Ah Beng Starstruck in KL

Hi guys. Sorry for not being able to update recently. I was in KL for the past 3 days on sort of a working trip. My task was to carry out interviews with filmmakers for my research on Malaysian cinema.

One of my primary target was of course, THE Yasmin Ahmad. It wasn't easy to pin her down but we actually bumped into each other at a shopping mall, of all places. So being desperate, I grabbed her leg & pleaded like a Bollywood melodrama.

But of course, Yasmin Ahmad is one of the most kind, loving & obliging creatures on this planet (just in case she's reading this).

I tell you. KL is a small place. Spend a day at megamall, & you can bump into anyone from your obscure hometown as far as UK (Ulu Kapit) or USA (Ulu Sungai Apong).
