Malaysian Anecdotes

THE PERDANA LEADERSHIP FOUNDATION (PLF) is putting together a book of Malaysian anecdotes to commemorate Malaysia’s 50th Malaysia Day on August 31, 2007 and is on the look-out for articles.

Anecdotes must be about Malaysian life and written in a light-hearted and humorous vein that every Malaysian can identify with. Anecdotes must reflect the Malaysian spirit and way of life. Only original and unpublished articles will be considered. All articles won’t be paid but you will receive a complimentary copy of the book for your effort when it comes out. And it’s for a good cause. All writers whose contributions are selected will be credited in the book.

Anecdotes must be edited for clarity and should reach me at ericcforbes@gmail.com or ericcforbes@yahoo.com by March 15, 2007.

Thanks a billion to Lee Su Kim and Adibah Amin for contributing three articles each. And thanks also to all those who are working on their anecdotes now.

Count me in, Eric! :)

I'll do my best to rewrite that Cycling Barber story since you think it's workable.

Now wondering what else I could write about..? Any ideas/prompts?

Learn to laugh at yourself. Poke fun at yourself. Tickle your funnybone. Observe the strange things that Malaysians do without even realising it. Check out Lee Su Kim's Malaysian Flavours or Lydia Teh's Honk! If You're Malaysian for ideas. Lots of Malaysian anecdotes in both books. Look at some of your articles and rework them. That's a start!
