"It's only through writing that I've ever been able to suppress life's personal disappointments. When I can't write I feel anxious and out of sorts and am easily riled, though I'm usually able to control my emotions..."
- Pramoedya Ananta Toer (The Mute's Soliloquy: A Memoir)
["Hanya dengan menulis aku mampu menekan segala kekecewaan peribadi hidup. Bila aku tidak menulis, aku merasa cemas & tidak keruan serta mudah gusar, walau selalunya aku bisa mengawal emosiku..."]

I PROMOTE MYSELF?!!!

I have a new book released this month (November 2009), 'PENTAS REALITI: ASPIRASI SENI' under the label of GEMPAK STARZ™. Honestly saying I have to promote this book myself because all these years, I did almost all the write up for GEMPAK STARZ™ products such as from Zint, Keith, Kenny, Zuan, Slaium, Kaoru & so on... yadda! yadda! So when it comes to me to promote my own work, I try not to over do it when 'the' some people around me started saying "Wahhh... promote yourself is it?" & I replied "Why do I have to promote myself, this is my job & the book is belong to GEMPAK STARZ™." Anyway... nobody has the spirit to praise my work except for my fans. So, why not! Get my latest work by GEMPAK STARZ™ now in the market for you to grab...

It costs only RM7.50 (RM8.50 sbh/swk), you like or you don't... try to like it. For me... I really like it considering all the efforts I had put in order to get it done at its best (I did the same thing to other products of GEMPAK STARZ™ until they think I'm 'frantically too perfectionist'!). For the BM grammar, I followed the grammar I studied during my school years (ibubapa not ibu bapa!) coz I don't have to do all commonwealth syllabuses when I am already independence. Any other mistakes, forgive me... coz I edited it myself too. TQ!

i've read ur book.

seriously dude, any writer can write stories about love, friendship, family or feelings...and anybody can come up with a lot of different stories as long as they put their maximum effort on the job.

But, not every writer can produce 15 different stories which each of them is only portrayed on 6-8 pages.

my point is, it is harder to create a short story than a long one. because we have to make sure every single detail is used accordingly without changing the idea and mood of the story.

but, u did it! within a limited number of pages u managed to maintain the flow of the story, and u did it 15 times! splendid, dude! :)

anyway, my favourite would be 'Ekspresi Cinta Brutal'. Great message, great dialogues and great mood, even though i'm not brutal. :D

keep writing! and drawing of course. :P

Trimas Igniz... ^_^
I'm emotionally affected by your comment. I'm not sure if I can do such short stories again because all these 15 stories were written when I first started working with GEMPAK™. But having such encouraging point of view, will sure give me strength & confident to do what I do best. Thanx a million Igniz! ^_^

'Ekspresi Cinta Brutal' revealed apart of my underground lifestyle back in campus during degree years before my music interest turned to trance beat. Ironic huh?

saya paling suka 'Anakku, Jangan Nakal2'! :)

Secara keseluruhan, semua cerita dalam tu okey. Yang paling best 'Nak Perli ke Tak?' coz cerita tu lebih kurang dgn pengalaman saya jugak...hehe

Btw, kenapa bubble dia besar tapi font kecik?

Then, klu PRAS ni dibuat style nomik mcm karya Aie, 'Aku dan Sesuatu' (klu tak silap), lagi menarik.

Trimas Fazl!
Huhu... 'Anakku Jangan Nakal' itu adalah karya masterpiece ok. My all-time-favourite, ia menjadi bukti kepada sesiapa pun yang mengenali Ayour bahawa bakat menulis kreatif Ayour diwarisi daripada seorang bidadari.

mengenai sebarang kekurangan tu Ayour akan cuba perbaiki untuk karya akan datang. Tapi nak buat cam Aie tu, Ayour lebih senang dengan cara sendiri. Sebab terlampau ramai sudah menurut cara dia malah Ayour sendiri pun pernah terikut dengan cara dia. Lihat sajalah Nizam Asari! Hehe...
