Like many others, I joined the Goverment and served for thirty-one years and retired in 2006. I was born and raised in the Kampong Hutan Kandeh, Lepai, Kedah to the Banu Salleh family. I received my tertiary education from Sultan Abdul Hamid College, Alor Star and University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur. Whilst with the Government I was posted to London, Rangoon, Johannesburg, Pretoria and Bangkok and travelled to many places.
None of my three children followed in my footstep but choose the private sector. My son, Ashraf with PK and elder daughter, Ayu are with foreign banks although my daughter in law, Dr.Tengku Intan Baizura binti Dato’ Dr.Tengku Jamaluddin is with the Government. My youngest daughter, Intan Alia is with TM.
In February 2008 Allah the Exalted has blessed us with the first grand daughter, Wan Akilah Safiyyah. It was one of the best moments in my life and it is a truly wonderful feeling to have her.Recently on June 15,2010 Allah blessed with another grand dauhgter Wan Afifah Zakiyyah.
I ardently hope to share my humble thoughts and perspective through this web sphere with my fellow readers and perhaps reaching all my folks regardless where they are. My aim is to foster the message of truth and peace , progress and harmony with passion.
