In case we forgot

One of Malaysia's more intrepid writers, as well as an adventurous filmmaker, Amir Muhammad is releasing an upcoming compilation of funny things Malaysian politicians say. It's a fun-filled, shock-fest of a trip down memory lane in an amnesiac Malaysia.

As the countdown to the book launch continues, Amir has also worked it out with the wunderkind business, arts and culture magazine 'Off The Edge' to have some of these quotes appear each month starting August '07, and even after the book is released. I guess there's no stopping Malaysian politicians from saying the darndest things (one of the more recent, scandalous ones being how some 8,000 out of 10,000 bloggers are unemployed women).

Out 16 September '07. And just in case we forget (especially us Malaysians out there), that's Malaysia Day.
