Unlike Timothy Lim, Shaun Tan takes the tin kosong short cut route to popularity, Malaysia bashing abroad, to get to the finals.
I read the winner's and the finalist from the Philippines' work, which are more accomplished, and nowhere do they besmirch or are derisive of their own country.
I do not believe for one moment, his no substance Ass"A", made the finals on merit.
It was more the "Shock and Awe". The same strategy used by his fellow alumni, George Dub(le)ya Bush.
"George W. Bush, in fact, may be the most spectacular affirmative-action success story of all time. Until 1994, when he was 48 years old and got elected Governor of Texas, his life was almost empty of accomplishments."
Master Shaun, welcome to the real world or stay the
Cos I fear your pro(opposhition)creation will create issues like the Hannah Yeohs of this world.
