Remember that I paint something during Children’s Literature Festival last year?
Yesterday I saw it being handed officially by Raja Zarith Sofiah binti Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah to Deputy Prime Minister’s wife, Puan Sri Noorainee Abdul Rahman, who is the patron of ‘Hati Nurani’ project.
My painting at its 5 minutes of fame. Standing on the left of painting: YBhg. Tan Sri Dato’ Dr. Asiah binti Abu Samah, Kota Buku Chairman; middle: YBhg. Puan Sri Hajah Noorainee binti Abdul Rahman, DPM’s wife and right; DYMM Raja Zarith Sofiah binti Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah. Also present to witness was Dr. Haji Awang bin Sariyan, Director General, DBP (in blue batik).
For your information, The SDH, carried out in collaboration with the Education and Health Ministries, was inspired by the Deputy Prime Minister’s wife, Puan Sri Noorainee Abdul Rahman. The project is aimed at providing formal education to students and children treated at hospitals.
Raja Zarith Sofiah who has authored several children’s books, including Puteri Gunung Ledang will be the patron for future children’s literature activities organised by Kota Buku and DBP.
A total of 10 paintings (out of 30; including mine) painted during Children’s Literature Festival, University of Malaya (UM) were donated to SDH during Prize giving ceremony of ‘Peraduan Mengarang Buku Bergambar Kanak-kanak 2012’ organised by Kota Buku and Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka yesterday at Prince Hotel, KL.
