While I work out some minor deets thanks to TT [what to pack, what airline to take, how to pay, will I die of starvation while I’m there?], I shall attempt to distract y’all with a few videos of 15Malaysia.
Below are a few of my favourite videos :
“Slovak Sling” – a hilarious guide to bribery. Just follow the subtitles if you can’t catch our heavily accented English 😉
“Chocolate” – the last ever short film by Yasmin Ahmad. In just 3 minutes she captured so many issues that are commonplace in Malaysia – racism, racial politics, family ties, money issues… take your pick!
“House” – This is so touching and the themes here not only apply to Malaysia, but for other indigenous peoples all around the world, especially in Argentina & Bolivia.Yasmin Ahmad makes a cameo in this movie – she’s the lady who sits next to Rama at the end 🙂
“Gerhana” (eclipse) – A take on apathy in Malaysia. And an excuse to hear Daphne Iking’s hot Sabah accent.
“Meter” – So. Fucking. Hilarious. Terribly embarrassed as the Malay guy [2nd passenger] spoke in PERFECT Mandarin. I, on the other hand, sound like a toad trying to speak it. And to think I’m stopping over in Taiwan for 10 hours. Haha!
No, that’s not ALL the movies. Go to the site and watch em all! I’m not gonna embed it all for you!
Hilarious song that’s so true. Let’s see, my exes have all added me to facebook. Oh except Joel. He knows that I’d click IGNORE even if he so much as THINK of adding me.
