Biography of fighter Siti Norkiah Mahmud out

I am really glad to have obtained a copy of Makcik Minah' s biography Srikandi Dari Pahang Utara ( Petaling Jaya, SIRD, 2011 ). The book is authored by UKM's retired scholar Dr. Mohamed Salleh Lamry. Makcik Minah's real name is Siti Norkiah Mahmud. I will start reading it soon as her 'story' is an important part of the true history of tanahair kita. I was honoured indeed to have been invited by Makcik Minah to visit her house in southern Thailand in 2009 and told some of her 'stories'.
