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.
