POETRY | Promise by Kevin Lau

Image credit: Gostica I have longed for you through the ages like how this primordial promise longed for its own fulfillment since the epoch of Creation. And I know that when all bridges are burnt to ashes, the last of citadels razed to the ground and all memories come undone, I will climb beyond the final rungs on the ladder to return to Your embrace and become You. Admirer of fine literary works regardless of genre and content, Kevin Lau has always found that the beauty of poetic expression stems from one’s longing to express inner experiences that often...

April 2017 was amazing because of these awesome artworks!

April’s art of the month is a little different. This time around, we decided to let our readers vote on Instagram and on Facebook on which artworks appealed to them for the month. And surprise, surprise! It’s the cover of “FIZIK-LAH!” – a brand new book on physics written by Zamir Mohyedin and Mohd s. Faiz – that was voted as Eksentrika’s Art of the Month for April – it received a total of 53 likes and loves! The design was created by Fasrulisham Ramly who faced many hurdles when pitching the design to the publishers. We’re glad Simptomatik Press obliged. The design...

POETRY | Bracelets by Hajer Nasir

Artwork by Hajer Nasir She wore bracelets full of flowers Which to her they looked so pretty But no one sees what lies beneath The roses and the lilies Her hair was the summer glow of June While her eyes were both the stars and moon But albeit the things that she would show They would simply never know The nights that bat under her lash Stained her pillow with thorns and leaves She’d wrap them ’round her head and wrist; And these are the bracelets that you see. – Hjr “I’m a pessimistic idealist. I’m the kind of...

SHORT STORY | It’s Magic by Masami Mustaza

Image credit: Mother’s love had no bounds, which was pretty much how Richard Mogumbirak came to be the size that he was today. His vital statistics read as follows: – Height: 1.75 metres; – Weight: 138 kilos; – Waist size: 46 inches; resulting in a BMI of over 40, a belly that jiggled and spilt over the entire circumference of his belt and flabby thighs as big as a batang pokok pisang. And Richard had a non-existent chin. Or neck. It was hard to tell. It wasn’t so much of a paunch – if it was possible for a neck...

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...
