The late Rehman Rashid’s A Malaysian Journey is an important piece of Malaysian writing about nationhood and identity that changed not only the writer's outlook about his country but also influenced him as an artist.  – Facebook pic, April 8, 2022.

CONFESSION time: I am a big admirer of literary figures. Writers. I don’t know when or how my admiration for authors started considering I didn’t read much as a kid aside from a few Hardy Boys novels

I was more into the comics of Lat (I had pretty much all of his 1980s collection), Lau Fu Chi (courtesy of the barber my Dad used to frequent), and of course, Garfield (I studiously cut out and collected the comic strips from The Star).
