Sad news from the Malaysian ad industry this weekend, as acclaimed Leo Burnett Kuala Lumpur ECD Yasmin Ahmad passed away over the weekend at the age of 51 after suffering a stroke last week.

Ahmad was an award winning film director, whose work has been featured in film festivals the world over (including Cannes) but the Western ad world might best remember her for “Tan Hong Ming in Love”, a 90 second spot where a young Chinese boy professes his love for a Malay classmate. The spot picked up numerous ad industry accolades, and puts a smile on the face of  just about everyone who sees it.
