Lat Was Here

18 08 2007

Papa just bought me a book called ‘Lat Was Here’. He wanted to introduce me to Lat. He just bought all 9 Lat books from Borders, in The Curve. I just started but after even 5 pages, I couldn’t stop laughing! Imagine, which hospital would ask the physiotherapy patients to walk in this ‘lorong’ and pay a toll??? I mean with the bandages there and here, and some will find it hard to walk……who would do such a thing?


I know who, the doctor in the real life Lat’s head. The other laugh-my-head-off cartoon goes like this:

Narration: Dr. Ling Liong Sik goes to work.


That guy is the ‘Dr. Ling Liong Sik’ and he is saying: “HALO! I’ll be late to office this morning! AA! Too many passengers laaa. AI YAAAA!!!”

That isn’t very relaxing for be because I have too use so much energy to laugh at the comics and I can’t help myself.


Papa says Lat is very old and the writer drew himself. His name isn’t actually Lat but his father called him ‘bulat’ because he is a rounded guy. The nickname from that nickname is Lat so that was how Lat was called, well, Lat. His comics are HILARIOUS! I’m sure you all know that. Papa said he would buy me a whole collection….yay me!

who else can be more malaysian than the ’rounded guy’ himself?

just for your info, aishah, his first book ‘the kampung boy’ was actually about his life as the kampung boy. that was one of his first. Dr Who? is his latest.
