From the daily grind at lj_malay:

Malay: Beribu-ribu monyet terlatih sedang berlari lintang pukang mencari hasil carian anda. Sila tunggu sebentar.

We're gonna use it. Really.

Novel writing query

I know that if you insert lyrics into a story you will have to obtain the permission from the copyright owners of the lyrics, but how do you go about copyright if you are inserting advertisement copy?

For an example, if I have a character driving around town while listening to the radio, and then listens to a jingle by Hotlink (I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now), is it necessary for me to contact the advertisement company that came up with that jingle if I want to include it into the story? Usually, how do you go about this?

- posted to katakita, malaysians. Will probably post to other places as well.

Global Malaysians Network - DEREGISTER YOURSELF

If you are on the Global Malaysians Network, CALL THE STAR AND DEREGISTER NOW.

Call +60379671388 and ask for extension 1335. Tell them to take your contact details down NOW.

There is a case of identity theft going on; I registered a couple of hours ago and I've had people pretend to be me and register me for random stuff. I even had The Star articles forwarded by my "friends" - only to turn out to not be them.

When I called them, they said it was the first time they had heard of it (despite the accouncement on the GMN website) and that they'll take your contact details down. The numbers on the GMN site and on The Star's site are the same.

PASS THE WORD. Otherwise you may be in for fraud. Be careful.

8: (insert witty tagline here)

8: (insert witty tagline here) is a short play performed by 8 young actors, acting out 8 short plays about 10 minutes long each. Derived from the actors' personal experiences, the plays ranges from funny and whimsical, to the tragic and melodramatic. Using minimalistic props, a bare set, and dramatic monologues, 8 attempts to drive home the core of the message that each of the plays contains.

Anyone else has watched this play and would like to share?
