Pearls of wisdom - no joke!

It was his childhood past time of doodling and dreaming that he turned into cartoons to amuse his friends.

And decades later Tan Sri Lim Kok Wing's 'Guli Guli' continues to tickle many.

It's a shame that his parents felt his artwork was "a waste of time". What they, and many others including the younger generation, would realise is his works published three decades ago still remain relevant.

Why so?

I'll let his comic strips, which appeared in the New Sunday Times from 1982 to 1987, do the talking.

Haze


We surprisingly lasted that long! And we're still talking about ways to combat the haze.

Budget



Let's see what gets 'potong' when Budget 2018 is tabled later this month.

Gambling



I bet we will still hear of illegal gambling syndicates operating nationwide.

Fake MCs

Graft


Have you noticed most MACC operations would see loads of luxury handbags seized.

Promises and 'lies'



Get ready to hear more mumbo jumbo in the upcoming GE14.

Katak, si katak lompat ....


As Darth Vader once said: "I find your lack of faith disturbing ..."
(Sept 17, 2017 - Mat Taib rejoins Umno)

If only Lim had a comic strip on Malaysian football.

Perhaps it's time for him to continue Guli-Guli. I'm sure his material will continue to be relevant when I turn 71!
