Was too startled to catch what she said. Flash on the screen, a funeral eulogy in progress. The bereaved wife talking about her late husband's sleeping habits. Then on reading the papers, I understood. The director behind this advertisment and the other on the doting father, is a malaysian lady Yasmin Ahmad. She was approached by MCYS on the recommendation of PM Lee Hsien Loong, who had seen her series of family and racial harmony commercials done for Msian oil company Petronas. Had a quick browse on Youtube. Her advertisments done with the asian touch that only we understands. Heart warming messages. Her films deal mainly around the inter-racial/faith relationships. A sensitive subject to be broach with caution.
