Put LAT’s comic books in your shopping list and bring the ‘Kampung Boy’ series back home.
You don’t need to be Malaysian or to live in Malaysia to enter LAT’s world: it is Malaysia. If you have visited Malaysia, that means that you can appreciate LAT. If you enjoyed visiting Malaysia, then you will enjoy reading LAT’s books. If you wish to share a piece of Malaysia with family or friends, and if you are looking for something to keep the Malaysian atmosphere, then the ‘Kampung Boy’ series is the best purchase. LAT’s comics books are available in all good bookshops but most of the time instead of being promoted at the front desk – as they richly deserve – they are hidden and you would need to ask the staff where they are.
I hope my modest contribution would help in promoting LAT’s talent among visitors and travellers, and that more people will share my interest and admiration of this very special person.
Breaking news : if you are in KL there is an exhibition of LAT’s cartoons (original drawings), 14-31 th of August, at Bangsar Shopping Center (Bangsar).
When we decided to move to Malaysia, 3 years ago, I made a list of things I would like to achieve. Among them was to meet LAT – Mohammad Nor Khalid or Datuk Mohd Nor Khalid- , the famous Malaysian cartoonist.
On the morning of July 9 2009, I met LAT in his house in Ipoh.
I was supposed to interview him to write an article for Greenselipar. I had three days to prepare my questions. I found it very difficult to find clever and pertinent questions. I had known LAT for almost 17 years through his art, it was like meeting an old friend. I didn’t know what to ask. I am not a journalist, nor a cartoon critic, so there were no point in pretending to be either one. I just wanted to meet him to see if he was anything like his cartoons.
Who are they and what they do
The Fairview is a family run guesthouse, ideal for the budget traveller and for families with children.
The World War II bungalow was the residence of a Chinese architect and businessman, Tan Sri Datuk William. It was turned into a guesthouse in 2003, first to keep the house alive, and secondly to generate income for its conservation, part of Kuching’s heritage.
Fairview is run by a local family, relatives of the late owner, Eric, Annie and Anson Yap. This friendly Kuching family will do their best to make you feel comfortable, and organize your journey throughout Sarawak. Read the rest of this entry »
