Yasmin Ahmad 1958-2009
1958 - 2009
I feel like writing something about the demise of Yasmin Ahmad. It was confirmed that Yasmin Ahmad, aged 51 years old has passed away at 11.15pm yesterday in Damansara Specialist Hospital.She was in a coma for 3 days(I think!) after suffering from a haemorrhagic stroke.3 days prior to admission, she was in a midst of a discussion with Dato Siti with her old husband wtf in TV3 HQ Bandar Utama before collapsed.
To me, she was an icon legend.It came as a shocking to me becoz she was one of the few directors in Malaysia who can actually made a difference in the local entertainment scene.She was well known with her movies such as Gubra and the latest Talentime.Though I didnt watched all of them but from the outstanding reviews and the awards that were received, I am sure Malaysia is and will always be proud of her.
This prolific director has her own unique way of reaching to Malaysians heart through her tv commercials for Petronas.Some of them were witty,funny and some were of coz deadly sad.Nonetheless, all of them had special meaning to it. This was a big loss for Malaysia.Great minds like these dont come very often.Let us all pray for her peace and may Allah bless her soul.Amin.
p/s I went to the gym early in the morning and work my a** out and currently energy-less .zzZZzzz...Have a nice weekend everyone! =)
