What’s up Francis Light?
Came to One Half x Ilaika, home of the reigning national barista champion and my absolute favourite coffee place in the neighborhood to do some writing. Bought a China Press newspaper because dad told me there was a report of Aqérat’s best film award win at Bologna’s Asian Film Fest. And then I was told that the coffee and cake are on the house! Thanks so much!

All my life, May 13, or 513, were used to remember the race riots in 1969. It was a dark chapter in Malaysian history. But with the changing of a 61-year regime, and a peaceful, bloodless revolution, we can put that behind us. I’ll remember that day not with fear, but with the belief that the Malaysians of today are decent, different and capable of changing the country with our own hands, without descending to violence. 39 years after this tragedy, hope and optimism are in the air. I’ll remember May 13, 2018 as the first Mother’s Day after the rebirth of our country. Happy Mother’s Day, mom. Now that we have done something to save the country, we are hanging out at home, enjoying some pizza.
Here in Malaysia, we just toppled a political party’s 61-year rule and heralded the forming of a new government. Seems a good day for a chicken feast. 杀鸡 indeed.
