of Singapore GaGa withdrawn from the Titian Budaya Festival...

...simply because the filmmaker Tan Pin Pin refuses to let Malaysian censors to have their way to cut the word 'animal' in Malay from the movie. Well, I have not yet watched the show so I can't comment about it. But one thing I must admit is that Tan Pin Pin has demonstrated that she'd not be buckled (at least, not easily) by the demand of Malaysian censors. Oh, and also it's a right move of her to withdraw the movie, Singapore GaGa from the festival as it has gathered even more publicity.

- MSN, "‘Animals’ a security threat, say Malaysian censors over Singaporean film".
- Channel NewsAsia, "Singapore GaGa pulled from Malaysia event after film censored".
