“While the story might be considered controversial, [Hazwan Norly’s] writing is never sensationalist, and his warm compassion and a strong sense of humour ensures the narrative never descends into simplistic caricature.”
The Straits Times Life on Pandan

“A powerful, no holds barred production that shows how the things we suppress will eventually come to light, and the all-important, redemptive power of acceptance.”
—Bakchormeeboy on Pandan
