lat exhibition at BSC aug 09
It was my second visit of the exhibition today, and I forgot my camera once again. I should come a third time…Is this a LAT’s syndrome?

I just want to share with you what could be a “cultural fact”.  The exhibition displays several 3D puzzles with some of the famous LAT’s characters. The visitors can play with them and create their own funny characters : one’s head, the second’s body and the third’s legs – I know it would have be easier to visualized with a picture, but it’s a good exercise for your imagination-. Like a child, I like to play with this kind of puzzle, and of course I did my own blend. I realized that soon after, somebody – I guess one of the security guard or one of the guy on duty at the exhibition booth – put back the characters in the proper order – neatly.

Today, I noticed that each puzzle was properly done, and I did not noticed anyone daring to play with. I will hide behind something to find  out what does it mean. Is this a lack of creation, of expression, of initiative ??

Any way, I knew about 80 % of the cartoons on display and I’ve laughed  to 100% of them. And I am not Malaysian.

Come and have a good time : laugh is good for your health. 

Too bad that they dont’ sell any of the Kampung Boy series.

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).

Lat and Malaysian Museums

'Tolong jangan Sentuh" means "please don't touch'. In most of Malaysian museums it is the only information you get about the artefacts on display. Published in the New Straits Time, 2007

LAT cheese vs durian

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.LaT hello

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.
