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

The main focus of the Rainforest World Craft Bazaar is on the use of traditional materials and traditional skills enhanced by competent modern design.


Craft Bazaar 2009 Sarawak

This year’s fundraising exhibition in aid of WWF-Malaysia will run from 17 May – 31 May 2009 in the underground gallery at Rimbun Dahan.

‘The tropical rainforest presents an ideal of wild perfection whose luxuriant growth we could to emulate in our gardens. It provides the inspiration for the landscapes of our imagination. The height of towering trees, their natural spacing and the effect of irregular features like rocks and rivers feed the well-spring of illumination for artists and poets trying to recreate something of this natural wonder in their own idiom. Without having seen a forest, how could we understand the potential of the material we work with? Where do we stand when our tanah air ceases to exist?’

Angela Hijjas & Noor Mahnun Mohamed

The exhibition is open from 10am to 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays, and on weekdays by appointment.
There will be a curator’s talk at Rimbun Dahan Gallery 3 pm, Saturday, 23 May

Rimbun Dahan is one of my favorites places which combines nature, art and architecture and it’s just about 1 hour drive from Kuala Lumpur.

Rimbun Dahan is a centre for developing traditional and contemporary art forms. It features buildings designed by Hijjas Kasturi, as well as a 19th century traditional Malay house, in an indigenous garden environment.

Please note that Rimbun Dahan is a private property. It is open to the public for limited hours only during exhibitions.

Kuching is a perfect destination for a traveller to start exploring Sarawak in Borneo, especially if you travel with children and are aware of responsible travel.

Kuching  is a nice town offering a wide range of good museum – maybe among the best in Malaysia -, nice heritage buildings from the 19th century, wide and safe sidewalks that allow you to discover the place slowly  – everything is at a walking distance –  and the best sunset I have ever seen in Malaysia

Kuching giant spider BakoNature and wilderness – proboscis monkeys, orang-outan, turtles,birds, big spiders..- are easily accessible at less than one hour, as well as nice and quiet beaches. And no leeches waiting for your blood, that’s great! 

The place offers also many opportunities to learn about the indigenous communities of Sarawak.

Check out the 2 posts we already published :

The Society Atelier, which conducts research and promotes the traditional craft of Sarawak, especially weaving. Now you can even have your lunch in the beautiful bungalow.

The Tun Jugah Fondation, Kuching, Sarawak : a must see museum for textile lovers especially for the indigenous ikat weaving of the Iban, called Pua Kumbu.

The Light Show 2009 presents an assortment of lights and light installations made from recycled/found objects to humour, cajole and inspire.

From PET bottles to milk cartons, plastic shopping bags to drinking straws, phased out incandescent light bulbs to old-skool cola bottles, these everyday materials have been rescued, re-used and re-imagined as light sculptures inspired by marine life-forms, whimsical one-off items, useful objects and many more.
