"On Thursday, July 23, 2009, Yasmin suffered a stroke and remained motionless, seated, she was resting her head on the table, with her hands cupping her face, while attending a meeting with local artist Siti Nurhaliza and her husband Khalid Mohamad Jiwa, and Media Prima representatives for an undisclosed project at Sri Pentas, TV3. Before the meeting, she spent some personal time with Media Prima's Group Creative Director, Peter Chin and was reported to be in a jovial and relaxed mod.
She was rushed to the Damansara Specialist Hospital where she underwent a neurosurgery procedure to reduce the swelling in her brain. The operation was a success however her condition was considered critical but stable. Bernama quoted her brother-in-law, Zakaria Zahari, as saying that Yasmin had suffered a stroke and hemorrhaging in the brain.
On Saturday, July 25, 2009, less than 48 hours after the surgery, Yasmin Ahmad succumbed to her injury and was pronounced dead at 11.25pm. On Sunday, July 26, 2009, her husband, Abdullah Tan Yew Leong, and their immediate families buried her at the USJ22 Islamic Burial Site in Subang Jaya. Hundreds of fans, friends, industry colleagues and personalities, gathered to bid her farewell."

I didn't know about Yasmin Ahmad until I saw her @ the
Earth Hour Event in CapSquare
I still remember she was there for promoting the "Talentime" and support EarthHour at the same time.
One of Yasmin's good production
"Here In My Home" - Delivering No Races Discrimination Message
I am sorry for being curious about Yasmin Ahmad's gender before as got "Ahmad" in her name. I guess I really lack of knowledge of Malay's naming.
I can't believe that was my first and last met with her.
Life is like a sudden and she just leave this world in a sudden too.
Wonder is there any co-relation with Teoh Beng Hock's incident?
I guess Heaven is hiring some good soul and Yasmin was one of the selected.
Maybe Heaven lack of good director?
Even thought I am a free-thinker I do hope she RIP and have a new bright life in heaven!
