This Malaysian Dad drew comics of life with his autistic son for an hour daily…and turned it into a video!

Art is healing and supportive. Don’t believe me? Well, you’ll have to check out this inspiring video by Faizul Khalid aka Zulkha, on the trials and tribulations he faced as a dad to an autistic son. It was supposed to be released last year but due to series of personal events, Zulkha coudn’t complete it in time. Instead of shelving this project idea, he set work to it, dedicating at least an hour on a daily basis, despite the stress of moving to a larger city, from Kapit to Kuching in Sarawak, working and caring for his son at the...

Enlightening guilt and regret through Tsao Yu’s Thunderstorm

All images credit: Joshua Teo  Thunderstorm (or in Chinese, 雷雨 Léiyǔ) might have been written during the infamous Chinese weepies era of the 1930’s, but the play itself has reached a legendary status – almost cult-like – to a certain extent among the East Asian literary and performing arts circles. As a testament, all four days of Tsao Yu’s Thunderstorm, directed by Faridah Merican were sold out before the curtains could even open here at the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre. Though the show in itself might have received mixed reviews, I found the entire play, which was punctuated with one...

Cerpen | Bertemu Seniman di Hotel Bajet oleh Abdullah Hussaini Mohd Ghazali

Sejak iklannya diuar-uarkan di facebook saya sangat teruja. Saya telah menandakan ‘menghadiri’ pada RSVP acara program yang dianjurkan seorang seniman muda yang meningkat naik namanya kini. Saya memang minat giler dengan dia. Mulanya saya terjumpa filem pendek bikinannya di Youtube dan sejak itu saya mula berminat dengan hasil kerjanya. Apabila dia mula membikin novel saya segera beli melalui pos. Walaupun saya punya keinginan untuk ke majlis pelancaran novelnya, bertentang mata dengannya, meminta autografnya dan mengatakan ‘filem pendek Cik Wan sangat brilliant’ tetapi hasrat itu terpaksa saya lupakan. Maklumlah saya duduk di kampung sangat jauh dengan Kolumpo tu. Novelnya meletupkan...

Megha Duta | Bahagian 23 oleh Uthaya Sankar SB

Kredit Gambar: Christian Vey  Baca bahagian-bahagian terdahulu di sini. Menerusi monolog watak yaksa kepada gumpalan awan dalam sajak klasik Megha Duta, dia tidak terus menyatakan apakah mesej yang perlu disampaikan kepada isterinya. Sebaliknya, dihuraikan dahulu secara terperinci situasi yaksi yang tinggal sendirian di Alaka selepas yaksa dibuang daerah ke Ramagiri. Dalam bahagian Poorvamegha, watak yaksa merujuk isterinya (yaksi) sebagai “adik ipar” kepada gumpalan awan. Kini, yaksa merujuk yaksi sebagai “sahabat” kepada gumpalan awan berkenaan. Sloka 26 – Wahai awan yang tenang dan cantik dipandang! Engkau juga mungkin melihat isteriku bermain alat muzik veenai yang diletakkan pada riba. Dia begitu ingin...

Travelling without a camera? Check out this awesome hack!

While most people these days travel with their hands glued to a smart phone or camera device, Ahmad Hakym gets by with a bagful of sketching tools. Instead of snapping as many photos in as many angles as possible, he simply finds a scenic spot, where he can linger long enough to soak up the sights, sounds and smells, which he then transfers onto his sketchpad. As long as he has his little “Doraemon” bag, with compact size watercolours, spray bottle, brushes, sketchbooks, watercolour postcards and tissues, he’s all set. A post shared by Ahmad Hakym Ahmad Hilmy (@kymioflario)...
