Used to the 'safe' confines of a co-ed school, Boon is shocked at Sekolah Menengah Seri Feri, an all boys' school, complete with scary repressed cikgus and sexually confused students. Then, amidst the confusion and change, he sees this weird brown boy flipping the Avon catalogue, and the weird boy smiles...and it begins. A friendship, between a boy, and a boy. Boon, and Eddie. As their friendship blossoms, Boon is introduced to a world where young girls regard pineapples as more than a fruit. He learns why some teachers never get to marry, and why there are weird sounds from the all boys asrama at night. It's a dangerous world at Sekolah Menengah Seri Feri, and the only way to deal with it is to be just as bad.

Featuring Fariza Ariffin, Adrian Chang, Lucille Dass, Lee Chun Kit and Chee Pheng. Caroline Jane has decided to make the ultimate sacrifice this Christmas for her new husband; to celebrate the season with her in-laws in Kulim. Determined to play Santa Claus, Mother Teresa and Jesus all at once, Caroline is confident that her enthusiasm will change the quiet Kulim although she does say, 'I don't think the spirit of Christmas is anywhere near a place called, Kulim, or Machang Bubok'. As she introduces her traditional Christmas, of perfect presents, carols and a turkey, the in-laws'; Pa, Mak and the irrepressible Ah Noi have other plans... Christmas in Kulim is an unlikely Christmas story set in an 'unChristmasy' part of Malaysia, but there will be carols, presents, and a big bowl of steamed herbal frogs soup...all in the spirit of the season! Price: RM 25 (Adults) & RM 15 (Students & Sr. Citizens) See Actor's Studio for more details.
