I have a new hobby of collecting old Malay children books. Specifically on ‘dongengs and hikayats’. I recently bought the Pak Pandir series and oh my… this dude is hilarious. How Mak Andeh put up with his silly antics and stupidity leaves one to wonder how much patience she has.
Next on the list I want to hunt around for are Pak Kadok and Mat Jenin. These two other dudes are also interesting characters I can’t afford to let the current generation forget.
