So many things have happened in my time away. The world mourned the loss of the bizarre yet irreplaceable Michael Jackson, and said goodbye to Farrah Fawcett.
And Malaysia lost one of her most cherished daughters when Yasmin Ahmad passed away on the 25th of July 2009.
Rest in peace, Yasmin, who always knew how to play the chords that resonate within our hearts - to laugh until our tummies hurt and to cry unapologetically. She showed us a glimpse of what it meant to live life to the full.
