Hello everyone. Thank you for being so patient. I realise that this is the longest that Niamah!!! has been silent since its launch a few years ago. The whole month of November, 2012. Whenever I am quiet for an extended period of time there are always friends (and foes I suppose) who will speculate if I have been:-
1. Arrested and thrown in jail.
2. Been paid a "friendly" visit by members of the Special Branch in the middle of the night.
3. Been called to Putrajaya and given some friendly "advice" by Rais Yatim.
4. Been called to Putrajaya and offered some legal tender "incentives" to stop mouthing off.
But ...... I am sorry that I have to tell you nothing as dramatic as any of the above actually happened. Ya. Being Niamah!!! isn't all that exciting I'm afraid. The simple reason is that I have been very busy with work. The kind that pays Ringgits so that my family can have a roof over their heads and food on the table. In October I was privileged to be involve in the shooting of Take Me To Dinner, a film by my friend, Gavin Yap. And immediately after that I started rehearsing for the play, Nadirah which had a very successful SRO run at the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC). Straight after that we took a short holiday to Melbourne. And upon coming home I started rehearsing for another play, Philadelphia, Here I Come for The Actors Studio. I have also just completed shooting my scenes in a new feature film which features some young and exciting directors and writers. And something wiped out my entire desktop on the laptop so I've lost all the photos and Word documents etc.
So, yeah it's been a hectic last quarter and Niamah!!! suffered because of it. However, I have not been totally unaware of what has been happening in Malaysia and among us Malaysians. I have been posting regularly on Facebook simply because it is an easier medium to use when I don't have time to sit and write lengthy rants. Some of you have told me that you do not like to use Facebook and therefore do not go there to read my nonsense. But for those of you who might want to try it out surf over HERE
To make it easier for everyone I shall duplicate all my Facebook rants here on Niamah!!! from now on so you can have a choice of where to read. It's good to be back. And, once again, thank you all for being so patient and friendly. Finally, what was the latest thing that made you go.......
