Farish Noor’s “WHAT YOUR TEACHER DIDN’T TELL YOU: The Annexe Lectures Vol.1”
 Book Launch, on Sat 5 Dec, 8pm, at the Annexe Gallery, Presented by Matahari Books

From the Annexe Gallery website : “Farish A. Noor might just be Malaysia’s hippest intellectual. His gifts are on full display in these expanded versions of public lectures that he delivered at The Annexe Gallery, Central Market Kuala Lumpur in 2008 and 2009.
Find out how “racial difference” became such a big deal in Malaysia, and contrast this against the way our distant ancestors lived. Discover the hidden stories of the keris, Hang Tuah and PAS. There’s also quite a bit of sex. Erudite, impassioned and sometimes just plain naughty, “WHAT YOUR TEACHER DIDN’T TELL YOU” is a stimulating plunge into aspects of our past that have been kept from us.

The 288-page book also contains dozens of sepia-toned photographs, many from Farish’s own collection of antiques. There’s even a bonus chapter! And it’s printed on thick (128 gsm) fully recycled paper. Retail price: RM40 (RM5 off at the launch).”

Please send me your reviews when you have read it. Thanks 🙂

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.
