Yasmin Ahmad, 1958 - 2009

I am reading Yasmin Ahmad's blog. News of Yasmin's collapse and subsequent death on July 25 has been in the local papers the past few days. The cause of death is believed to be due to brain hemorrhage.

Yasmin Ahmad, film and advertising director was responsible for great ads like those of Petronas's - those ads that touch us as humans and as Malaysians. Those ads that are along the lines of OneMalaysia, indeed. Perhaps the films Sepet and Gubra are more familiar to you?

Yasmin Ahmad was laid to rest yesterday at noon. She was 51. Hundreds bade Yasmin farewell.

Malaysia has lost a true Malaysian..

Let me share two of Yasmin Ahmad's creative works. You can view more on YouTube.

May you Rest in Peace, Yasmin Ahmad.


  1. She's a true star. And now...she is gone. =(

  2. Anonymous1:36 PM

    I thought she would recover.

  3. T, we sure need more Yasmins in Malaysia. She will be missed.

    MT, another personality "gone too soon"? She died exactly one month after Michael Jackson.
