I must have misplaced the name and address of the lady who told me to write to her when my books are ready so that MOHE can do the book launch. I saw her info last week in one of my many diaries, but I can't find it this week. I remember sending her a greeting. But I can't find her in my 4,000+ emails. I can't remember her first name. She sat next to me at the Majlis Profesor Negara (MPN) evening tea at PICC, Putrjaya. I have to check the date of this event and maybe the box that contains all the materials for the event.

Anyway rather than waste time searching for the box that contains the MPN details and her name and address, I decided to write directly to the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE)/Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi (KPT) today. It took me an hour to search where and whom to write to. I wrote to ask if it is interested to launch my books on The Early Malay Doctors. I also left 2 posts at MOHE in Facebook.

Just found her! I wrote a post about her in this blog and it has her name and hp#.
I attended the Majlis Pelancaran Majlis Profesor Negara (MPN) and Higher Institute Centre of Excellence (HICoE) at PICC, Putrajaya on 1 April 2010. I met Salmah of MoHE at the function. I informed Salmah re this book and its publication (June 2011). She said to keep her informed and asked where USM will launch this book and who will launch this book. Salmah recalls Tan Sri Dr Abdul Majid bin Ismail as an orthopedic surgeon.

I received an SMS from Salmah. She has moved workplace and no longer works at KPT. I asked for her full name, where she presently works, and her email. She hasn't replied yet.
