Mak Inom


The walls of Rumah Ipoh are filled with my poems, except this one. I decided to memorialise this unforgettable line at Rumah Ipoh's main hall because I first fell in love with Ipoh through Yasmin Ahmad's films. That poster was signed by her and given personally to me when I was a film student, as a reward for answering her questions / quizzes (regarding her work) correctly. Yesterday Yasmin Ahmad's mother, Mak Inom, passed away. I believe in my heart that they are both in a much better place and I believe Allah Ta'ala knows His servants more than anyone else. Do good and be kind.
