Al-Fatihah, kak Yasmin..Posted: July 26, 2009
Just this morning, I was telling my family that kak Yasmin’s condition was deteriorating.
And now, I read THIS:
KUALA LUMPUR: Renowned film and advertising director Yasmin Ahmad died here at about 11.25pm on Saturday night.
Her death was confirmed by Media Prime Group Chief Operations Officer Datuk Seri Ahmad Farid Ridzuan, who was at the Damansara Specialists Hospital, when contacted by Bernama.
The news has yet to sink in.
Earlier this year, I got my friends to watch kak Yasmin’s Sepet, telling them that if they wanted to know what Malaysia looked and felt like, this was the movie to watch.
I had been following her blog since last year.
I had loved her Petronas commercials since she started making them.
Al-Fatihah, kak Yasmin. May you rest in peace. May your family find the strength to deal with your sudden departure. And may the stories that you pushed so hard to tell be told to millions and millions more.
You will be missed dearly.
