Farewell


The Haji Family by Redza Piyadasa (1990)

Redza Piyadasa passed away yesterday, 6:15pm. (GMT +8:00).
Rest in peace...

I was very lucky to be taught by him, even for a short period.
Thank you for your teachings...

"Malaysia has just lost a great artist and champion of the arts, Prof. Redza Piyadasa.

Piyadasa passed away in Kuala Lumpur after a long illness today at the age of 68.

The Kuantan-born Piyadasa was a strong advocate of national unity, liberalism and humanism through visual and performing arts.

He was a founder of the Five Arts Centre, a theatre company dedicated to promoting and nurturing new talents in English theatre."

He was, my friend. He was...

Jezmine:
I was... Until she decided to part ways and see someone new... What to do.

Anyway, OMG that's a lot of comics you bought! Mint condition too!? I'd love to get them from you myself!!! But if you want bigger bucks you should try at the specialty comic stores. There is one at ss15 PJ called The Comics Corner. Those rare collectives worth a bomb man!

O_O

Not to mention the popular titles too!
