Kak Adib as we remember her.
When admirers came a-calling the other day.
I grew up as a teenager, enjoying Sri Delima's "As I Was Passing" - a regular and enduring column in the New Straits Times.
I always looked forward to reading Adibah Amin's anecdotes of life in Malaysia, as she saw it.
I loved her elegant and charming style as she captured and celebrated Malaysian life.
We all wanted to write like Adibah Amin.
I was privileged to have known her personally and professionally. I am thankful for that.
We've known that Kak Adib had not been well these past few years and has been cared for by her brother.
On Monday, she received some visitors and a little contribution.
Adibah Amin is, undoubtedly, a precious Malaysian icon. A living legend, in her own right.
Kak Adib, I pray for your well-being and recovery.
