Why 'Secebis Salam'

This was the name of a periodical from the Department of Irrigation and Drainage's "Penerapan Nilai-nilai Islam' programme that my husband was charged with as chief editor during the early 1990s.

The name was borne out of a half-hour long brainstorming session from the committee members of Ir. Ziauddin Abd Latiff, Ir. Nor Hisham Mohd Ghazali, En Bakeruddin (resident cartoonist), Ir Shaharuddin Ibrahim, Hj Zakaria Md Said, Ir Jalil Hassan, Ir. Paridah Anun Tahir and Pn. Rozina Md Zafian. The name sounds appropriate enough at that time.....

The periodical was a testament of what can be done with practically zero budget. Those were the good old days of DID!

My husband just thought that it's timely to pay this tribute to his former cabinet members.
