“Sayang, bila kamu nak buat filem? (When are you going to make a film, dear?)” the late director Yasmin Ahmad would always ask Chong Keat Aun, then a radio deejay, every time they met.
“Yes, that’s what she would always call me, ‘Sayang’,” Chong remembers Yasmin’s kind, caring voice like it was just yesterday in an interview with StarLifestyle. However, Chong would always reply that he wasn’t ready yet.
