Yasmin I Lup Chew

This book is not about the celebrated Malaysian filmmaker Yasmin. This book is about you. And about inspiring you. Because whenever the compilers of the book asked Yasmin how she’d like to be remembered after she dies, she’d say that she would like to be remembered for her work. And if people forget who did the work, then it’s even better.

In here are Yasmin Ahmad’s earliest handwritten thoughts she so generously shared with her family and friends decades before anything came out of it. Tiny sparks of ideas. And bits of her humble, non-film work. ‘Irritatingly optimistic’ was how Yasmin described herself, despite the unspeakably harsh difficulties she lived through. ‘God blesses each one of us with the same amount of talent, albeit in unique ways — but we need to korek for it’ she insists. God willing, this inspires you to korek for what you are specially blessed with. And make the best of it too.
