You're Asking Moi?

"What do you think of your..."

"Well since you asked... I think I'm slightly overweight, I've a tendency to..."

"Not you lah Budak Perasan! I'm asking you about 4PA."

"You want me to comment on my own work????"

"Why the hell not?"

"You're asking moi?"

"Yes, I'm asking vous!"

"Okay then, read my blog tonight!"

Ok well, if you ask me now I've to tell you that I'm quite dissapointed with the film. I'm not falling prey to false modesty but I feel that way to all my previous works. So in a way I'm never completely happy with anything I did. I'm the happiest human being on earth when I'm doing it but the outcome will usually make me strive even harder to get things right and even then, when it is all done, I will still be unhappy. It's really like courting an impossibly angelic being. I know she's too good for me and when I do approach her I will make mistakes and give her a bad impression, but she's the love of my life and I made it a mission in my life to marry her.
It's the first script I'd ever written and I didn't know what to expect from the the delivery. And now I do. Now I know how to approach people's attention and make good use of visual motion and sound to make my story felt. Like anything else worth doing, I felt that I learnt a lot from this experience and this will pave a way for more effective jongleur-ing.

I'm not exactly commenting on my own work am I? Don't get me wrong, I'm the first person who realized the abundance of incompetence in 4PA but I don't regret the process of making it. I learnt a lot. I learnt about editing, writing, acting, mood control and flow. But most of all, I learnt that this is the one thing I want to do in life and I'm grateful to God that He made me realize this.

Did I answer your question Razak?

Me? An artist? The very idea of me being an artist is laughable. Maybe because I associate artist with limitless eccentricity, tragic deaths and delusional theory of their own life.

Ah Helen, she's the epitome of beauty and grace. Ppl wage war for her sake!
