Bhd in The first printed book was in The study involved both the primary and secondary research. Both primary and the secondary research are important to study and analyze the content of the story. Muliyadi Mahamood in order to understand the content and context of the story. I took 3 days to finish reading the book.
As a reader, I tried to experience the feeling of being the main character and tried to understand what does the artist tries to share and convey in his comic. This help to understand further about the content of the story.
This story is more about his personal life of how he was raised in a very emotional life and experience that indirectly open his eyes to appreciate more about his life as a Minang boy.
When he was the youngest, all his family loved him until he got new little brother, Aca. Somehow just because of the birth of Aca, he seemed to be forgotten by all his family members including his most beloved sister, Kak Cik as they seemed to love Aca more than him. Accept for his grandmother that loved him until her last breadth and left Ujang when he still in primary school and about to stand for SRP. He teased Aca to convey his jealousy and this caused him to be scolded by his mother and often got caned by her.
Ujang grown up, became wilder and always got into a fight with anyone he disliked in primary and secondary school. The caning by his mother seemed to be nothing anymore as he was used to be caned every day. There were attempts of running away from home to Kuala Lumpur but always failed. He experienced the hardship in his friendship, difficulties looking for job, involved in social problem, and finally being one of the homeless people in the lost city.
An energetic person- Since he was a boy, there were always something he did that sometimes made others felt uneasy with his actions. He always teased Aca, his little brother and thus made her mother mad at him and caned him often. Hot-temper- Always got into a fight with other students or people he disliked since in his primary school until he finished his school. Creative- Love to draw. He drew his grandmother, and also drew a chicken for Aca. Loving- Ujang also is a loving person.
Even though he knew that his mother was guilty for expelling his grandfather from the house, he defends his mother when his entire sisters tried to scold and blame the mother. When he lived with Atuk, he was taught by Atuk how to massage twisted part of body and he often helped massaging silat students of Atuk. Playful- Ujang invented his own toy when he was a young boy.
He also actively involved in various sports during his teenage such as playing football and Takraw. Out-going- Ever since he was a young boy, he often went out somewhere and barely got home early. Negeri Sembilan is a well-known state for its historical background as one of the states that was once ruled by the Minangkabau people from Sumatera now Indonesia ever since 14th century, and has thus inherited the cultural believes to the citizens and became one of the Malaysian identities until now.
The most recognizable symbol of Minangkabau is the shape of the buffalo horn in most of the rooftop architecture and attire of the people of Negeri Sembilan. He spent most of his time with friends in the backyard forest slingshot some birds, and also bathing in the river near his house.
He also attends to Al-Quran class every evening with his sister which is common in Malaysian culture. In the comic, we could see these phenomena influenced the life style of Malaysian people in the area of Kuala Lumpur illustrated by Ujang.
Ujang met his new friends; Joe, Carlos, Mie, Stross In the scene where Ujang ran away to Kuala Lumpur, Ujang met with some teenagers there with fancy dress up depicting western rockers attire. Otherwise, woman must be protected from any difficulties and they must be appreciated by the people as they are the symbols of birth and life. The cartoonist used the same name for the character which is Ujang and other characters that actually are real in his life.
Therefore I think he wrote this comic with all his heart. The elements of Malaysian national identity were accentuated in the comic. I think this is important in dignify and uphold these identity so that we still could recognize the distinction of Malaysian cartoons with other countries and this in my opinion could raise the Malaysian cartoons industry as far as this identity is concerned.
