I love her ads. Short and very thought provoking. Often leaving me teary eyed. I guess we won’t be seeing any more of her work during festive seasons. Seriously, such a big lost to the nation.

Embed is my most favorite clip.

Let’s just pray she left with no regrets. Amen.

ps: Hope to see more and more of her work. Sadly..  😥

when someone was gone
the only left are the words
the words taken the life
and began to spreading in other people’s mind.

Madam yasmin was an extraordinary human being who pricks our concious to think how fragile we are as a human with just a ten minute clips\ads.I bow my head in respect to this beautiful soul who we will miss forever.From now on will there be another yasmin?For me she will lives on in every soul who remembers and cheerish her and her works in any way possible as long as we remember all of us are merely a fragile human beings.Thank you for giving me a small space to pay my tribute.

Al fatihah. Yang paling sedih she left without enough credits in her bag by our own penggiat seni. Balik2 that so called prof mohaidin’s stupid filem tu juga yang menang award.

Such a waste

Linie, tak baik buka aib orang dah meninggal.

Al fatihah

To think I might not see her anymore, makes so it so hard not to cry……indeed she was one of the nation’s most promising assets, such a great loss we have to endure now.

We shall miss you Yasmin Ahmad, glad that our paths crossed and to get to know u for a short period of time, i shall cherish it…..goodbye from us Dubliners
