Condolences:Laila Taib

In Memory YABhg Puan Sri Hajah Laila Taib

Sarawak lost her First Lady today between 3 - 4 p.m Nadai Nama Nama offers its Condolences to the Chief Minister of Sarawak for the loss of his beloved wife. She was 68 years old. Here are some of my favourite pictures of the First Lady which I managed to collect over the years I started blogging. Words won't be able to say what needs saying on how our First Lady stood by our Chief Minister during trying times - so I hope this few photos can convey some light about her. Her contributions were well covered as she led charitable organisations and spearheaded the State's tree planting campaigns. Rest in Peace First Lady.

Ideal Pair: During the launch of The Eastern Times in 2006

The above picture was taken during the launch of the Eastern Times in 2006 at the then Crowne Plaza. The Chief Minister had just undergone a treatment himself. They were presented with a potrait of the Chief Minister guiding the First Lady down the steps. She was his pillar of strength during the Chief Minister's road to recovery. When the Dewan Undangan Negeri Seating for 2009 opens next month in May, she will be dearly missed.

Des, macam x cayak nya dah sikda oh. Even sometimes she known as fussy lady but ya she the first lady, no one cant complain on that.

She has given lots of contribution to charity work etc. Should be remembered for that.

May her soul rest in peace.
