I am afraid i wont be able to attend this session as i'll be abroad for a conference.

Hope everybody's gonna have fun, and thanks sharon for the regular updates!

PS: about that natasha issue, i think her mom,nan or whoever mustve recited/sang the poems as a lullaby for her in english but as she wanted to catch the malaysian kids attentions, she prolly thought it wont be any harm translating something that she used to hear when she was a little girl.

A bit of news:

Pak Samad's reaction to the KOMSAS (Malay Lit Component) issue, yesterday, at the Kata Suara event at RA Gallery.

Don't know much about it to comment beyond translating the sources, but apparently his works are to be excluded in the revised reading list for the Malay Lit Component (KOMSAS), in favour of more popular literature i.e. trash-fict (see here and here).

The governing committee, PPK defends this decision by saying that the Laureate's works are too difficult to understand and teach in school.

Pak Samad moves to disassociate himself with KOMSAS as Sasterawan Negara, saying "the national literature is actually not respected."
