We are very sad to inform you that Cikgu Puteri Asma, our teacher of Malay Literature in Form Six passed away at about 3.00 pm today,16th February 2011. Her sister,Puteri Rashidah informed us that Cikgu Puteri Asma died of a heart failure. She was laid to rest tonight itself in Ipoh.
Last year, as we started re-connecting with students and teachers, Cikgu Asma was the first teacher we met (see blog posting dated Sunday June 13, 2010) and we last met her at Ramli Hassan's function in Ipoh on Dec 19th 2010.Despite her eye condition(she suffered from retina detachment),she participated in several of our gatherings and she always enquired about past students who were not there. She told us that she was always so happy whenever she meet up with her old students.
We have lost a very sweet, gentle and caring teacher and friend.We offer our sincere condolence to Puteri Rashidah and family.
Sek Yee and Khadijah
