There was me shooting off my big mouth about the silliness of the whole thing - in print! (*Swallow hard*). But, Amir (Mr. Malay Male), I'm flattered that you thought my words important enough.
Was much amused to read in the Sunday Times that because Amir (the filmaker) feels that since the title of the movie provoked emotional reactions, he might rename it Senario Cinta Mawi:
Roughly, it means Senario (the popular Malay comic group) in love with Mawi (the even more popular singer).Who could object to that?
But anyway at least Amir's work is finding an appreciative audience overseas.
Meanwhile, the new look (all singing and tap dancing) Malay Mail has a cleaner, more hip image, and I am enjoying some of the new features. It was great to see Amir Hafizi writing a column in his bad-boy voice on Sunday. Must confess though, I'm going to miss the sleaziness of the former version ... and I found it a great source of ideas for fiction with all the human drama and corpses and loan sharks and snatch thieves littering the pages. Don't sanitise too much lah! We need our scandals ...
