Search 3

November 2004

The third search involves contacting the daughter of one of the early Malay doctors at a wedding in Kubang Kerian, Kelantan to obtain the history of the doctor's life.

I was informed by Puan Salmah on two occasions (previously in Cheras where I first met her, and again during her son's wedding in Kubang Kerian, Kelantan) that Dato' Dr. Haji Mohammed had known Dato' Dr. Haji Che Lah Mohd. Joonos. Both doctors were well-known in Kuantan, Pahang.

According to Puan Salmah, her family has lost many of her father's photos in a big flood (which flood was she referring to?). One of her five sons agreed to assist as he still keeps his pictures.
