Odd One Out is "passionate and curious about exploring the creativity and characters outside of the more common, well-known spectrum of people. We set our course from regions, cities, and places that are often forgotten or misconstrued; places like Malaysia, for instance. Places which are most famous for a single story; thus creating a stereotype that can only be broken by telling the complete story."
In Volume 2 we continue to explore the worlds of people whose stories and work have captured our hearts. For our profile interviews, we meet up with eight extraordinary individuals such as documentary filmmaker, Mahen Bala; Takahara Suiko of the 'experimenternative' music band, the Venopian Solitude; the taste librarian, Basira Yeusuff; the analogue world gatekeeper, Chin Koon Yik; the Mak Yong purist, Professor Ghulam-Sarwar Yousof; the urban cycling game master, Jeffrey Lim; the henna rebel, Anna Maria and digital surrealist, Sharina Shahrin. We also feature writings by Atikah Abdul Wahid, Shari E. Jaffri, Emily Sekai, Afi Noor, Aizuddin Anuar, and Luwita Hana Randhawa including some favourite things of Adeline Chong of the Snackfood fame. Not forgetting works and photography by Nazmi Anuar, Abdul Hakim Abdullah, and Minstrel Kuik.
