Sebagai wakil rakyat di kawasan ini, saya akan bekerja keras memastikan pelajar di daerah ini mendapat pendidikan yang sewajarnya.

KeTTHA's Annual Gathering 24/01/2017
Today I reminded the KeTTHA family to reflect and go back top basics of our Rukunegara. It should be the core of our actions. I also shared with them the recipe to success - intellectual and hardwork. With these two elements, one can be successful no matter where you are in this world. It reminded me of my father's advice long ago when I went overseas for my studies, he said: "Jangan pulang kampis barait", which technically means don't come home empty handed. His words linger until today. Those words made me who I am today, and I urge KeTTHA family and those out there to not leave their 'barait' empty. What you learned today will be useful tomorrow.
