hey, amir! i enjoyed your thursday column this week. hahaha. you're so right about taxi drivers. it's scandalous how the one you described blithely talked about race and religion. the authorities should clamp down on them all right.

I'm from melbourne,vic and i saw your movie and i understand the malay lang btw.ur movie was one of the worst movies i've ever seen in my life-half of the people in the lecture theatre (it was shown during a media comm lect) walked out after 15 mins but as a msian i was determined to watch the whole thing and pass out fair judgement.i felt you could've done much better-and btw,the poster's excruciatingly ugly!
