Yasmin At Kong Heng (Yasmin Ahmad Museum)

One of Malaysia notable icon in advertising industry.
Yasmin Ahmad.

Most people are like me, never knew that Yasmin Ahmad Museum existed, let alone in Ipoh. 

Why Ipoh? 
Yasmin's love for Ipoh is well known to many of her fans and followers, it is often Yasmin's location of choice, let it be for films or advertisements. This is probably due to the heritage, scene and the whimsical feel when one is in Ipoh, everything seems to slow down, the past and the future met and blend without dismissing each other's traits and presents.

I learnt Ipoh's beauty from Sepet when Jason fell in love with Orked, followed by Muallaf and Talentine; featuring many of Ipoh's charm. And the rest, is history.

Yasmin at Kong Heng or Yasmin Ahmad Museum is located on the second flood of Old Block Apartments along Jalan Sultan Yussuf in Ipoh, Perak.  

Yasmin' most famous branding (if I may say so myself) is her Petronas advertisement, one that I'll wait with anxiety, every festival, every Merdeka Day; without fail. Her advertisement will either brings me to tears or burst into laughter; full of hope and sincerity, not many match her talent and touch.

Her eyes for details is unrivaled. Focusing on current issues that everyone can relate to, any walk of life. And my all time favourite is Sepet.

True that. 

The beauty of this museum is that the entry is terms of donation with minimum value of RM3; for maintenance costs. Yasmin would love this. I am sure.

A magazine about Yasmin death and her hand written notes.

“Yasmin, How You Know?” is a book compiled by friends and family, a collection of her poetry, thoughts and as well as her last two scripts. Priced at RM35 per copy where the proceed go to Mercy Malaysia; I heard it was Yasmin’s favourite charity.

Thank you Gaya Travel Magazine for introducing me to this beautiful place.*smile*

What's your favourite Yasmin's film/advertisement?
