Two more candidates announced today for UndiMsia!’s fundraising initiative Come UndiMsia! Presenting Mano Maniam and Art Harun!



The man with more than 50 years of experience in the performing arts industry as an actor, drama instructor, director, voice-over artiste and writer is a theatre doyen and a television veteran. Wowing audiences with his performances in Caught in the Middle, Kopitiam, Anna and the King, The Sleeping Dictionary, Sini Ada Hantu and Mat Gelap (to name a few) Mano’s most recent project is the ‘Theater for Seniors’ workshop at KLPAC which gives the older generation a spot in the limelight (no experience necessary!) Having had a few experiences during his undergraduate days at University Malaya with the Malaysian system which left a bad taste in the mouth, Mano had this to say in an interview with the Nutgraph on 22 July 2010, “Nobody was willing to help me; they were nasty. That had an indelible effect on me. It did not make me hate the system as much as it made me want to change the system.” Mano truly believes the time is ripe for Malaysia to change, and he’s geared up to go! What’s NOT to LIKE??

Art Harun believes that he is a failed government experiment, abandoned and left alone to roam the streets after all remedial efforts yielded no positive results. He calls himself a non- governmental organism, practices law for a living and tries very hard to play the guitar, sing, race cars and writes some stuff to stay alive. Art blogs at, tweets from @Art_Harun. He sounds relatively normal, no?! Perhaps a democracy with a self-deprecating yet informed individual!
