Fat Bidin will be at Art for Grabs this weekend (12th & 13th September)!

It’s Art for Grabs time again! And of course, Fat Bidin is going to be there with collaborator Superdoofus so that we can meet our friends and fans (yes… all three of them!).


Check out the stuff that I will be having with me there… all on special face to face discount prices and packages!


Aside from the limited photo prints from my Afghanistan collection, I will also have three books that I have written (Operation Nasi Kerabi: Finding Patani in an Islamic Insurgency even comes with a free DVD of the documentary film I shot!).


So make sure you come to The School @ Jaya One this Saturday and Sunday (12th & 13th September 2015) to come and meet us! We’ll be there for two whole days!


Oh… and not forgetting…

I am also conducting a film challenge with fellow film director Woo Ming Jin under the Very Bad Film School label!


Here’s a description of the challenge:

Pick either challenge or take both!

Woo Ming Jin‘s challenge:
From the excerpt of the book, <Norwegian Wood>, you will make a 2-min short film from it with some rules…

Zan Azlee‘s challenge:
You have to shoot a complete documentary film in one single shot only with some rules…

The duo will share more details and even show samples of work 12p.m. on 12-Sept-2015 at the event.

Submission will close 5p.m. on 13-Sept-2015, follow by screening at 6p.m. with commentary session. Thomas Barker, Cho We Jun, Isazaly IsaDiffan Norman and Ahmad Yazid will be there to share their views on your films!

This challenge is in conjunction with Art For Grabs + SIS, Sat 12 & Sun 13 Sep 2015, at The School, Jaya One, Petaling Jaya.

I was on BERNAMA TV’s The Breakfast Club looking all sexy and seductive!

I was on BERNAMA TV’s The Breakfast Club a few weeks ago (18th October 2011) to promote my book and DVD ‘OPERATION NASI KERABU: FINDING PATANI IN AN ISLAMIC INSURGENCY‘. Holy crap I’m so sexy! It’s no wonder I have a legion of fans! (Please like my Facebook Page… PLEASE!!!)

Of course… the book can be found at any major bookstore at RM25 (a free DVD of my documentary comes with every purchase). And if you’re interested to purchase it online, head on to the FATBIDIN e-STORE! There are other FAT BIDIN documentaries for sale too!

My sexy self serenading the pork!

I was recently invited to participate in Readings @Seksan by Sharon Bakar and of course, it was to read from my book ‘Operation Nasi Kerabu – Finding Patani in an Islamic Insurgency‘. The line-up was fantastic! It was Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad (Coming of Age), Rumaizah Abu Bakar (The Female Cell), Adib Zaini (Zombijaya), Julian CH Lee (Policing Sexuality) and, obviously, to cap everything off and to add to the prestige… ME! There was also music by Reza Salleh.

I even managed to sell quite a number of copies of my book. A bit of advice… the best marketing strategy is to carry your baby daughter around and announce that all proceeds of the sales of the book will go to buying milk and diapers for the week. Fail-proof plan!!

For those of you who did not attend the reading (I shall unfriend you on Facebook!)… fret not! You can listen to a recording of my reading by clicking on the audio player above. And if you want a copy of the book (with a free DVD!)… you can still buy it at any major bookstore or order directly at the FAT BIDIN e-STORE for a signed copy!

Julian CH Lee (Policing Sexuality) is the one on the far right. I was busy snapping pictures of him with his camera during his reading so I don't have any pictures of him in front of the crowd in my camera!
