BABA - May he be happy in the next world....

I had wanted to write a short review on "Nasi Lemak 2.0". But this news came in...so it has to come on instead.

We will miss the duo's celebrated acts and all the laughter the two can think of to make us happy...in the Malaysian way...And not only those of us who know what Baba and Nyonya Culture means...

we will miss their singing too..

we will miss the white singlet and the sarong....

and the love shared by the two on screen...

SIGH!!






This morning most of us were informed about the death of one of our most famous Chinese/Baba actors of Malaysia - Uncle Chee Hood Siong (Baba)'s untimely passing  last night. His most hilarious role was  his wonderful contribution to the film 'Nasi Lemak 2.0' along with Kenny (Nyonya) 


Yes...echoing Namewee...."He will never be forgotten... Uncle Chee, may you rest in peace ..."

Ann...he was really a great entertainer...crossing borders of race and even religion through his special sense of humour. I think I learned more Malay from him than any body else!

No TV - books!! Dad and all of us read everything we could lay our hands on....
