You Made Us Proud

A record was made.

For the first time in the history of Malaysian advertising, a Malaysian television commercial, directed by Yasmin, was awarded a Gold Lion at the Cannes Advertising Festival, 2008. The commercial was entitled "Tan Hong Ming In Love" and i'm sure everyone is familiar with it.



Another commercial in the same campaign, "Race", was given the Bronze Lion in the same category.



I'm truly so proud of her.

Her ads are always inspiring. Very simple messages, but delivered in her unique storytelling way, never fails to touch everyone's heart. Look at the recent news in the country, and look back on the ads, don't you think that if we're all "colourblind", isn't that everything will be so different now?

yes, her ad kept me glued to the screen during ad slots, on big occasions such as CNY, Raya n Deepa. Merdeka too.

she doesn't mind courting potential controversy with her take on the non-existent racial discrimination. kudos!

M'sia REALLY boleh!
