SELAT KELANG state assemblyman Dr Halimah Ali’s life story is so interesting that it can be inspiration for a best seller.

Besides being posted to many places during her career as a government physician, Dr Halimah has also served as a medical officer in many missions to disaster-riddled and war-torn places around the world.

Also equally interesting is the personal life of the Sarawak-born Dr Halimah, who has two families whom she loves and cares for equally.

“I was born to Chinese parents but was given away soon after birth to a Malay family as my biological parents were poor,’’ said Dr Halimah, who is one of the three PAS representatives in the state exco line-up.

She added that she never knew that she was an adopted child until she was about to leave for Tasmania, Australia to do her matriculation at the age of 17.

Ironically, her biological parents also lived in the same kampung where she and her adoptive parents lived.

Dr Halimah, who is also a Selangor state exco member, said she had given up her medical practice to become a full-time politician.

She added that her priority now would be to look into whatever issues faced by her constituents that were not settled by the constituency’s previous state assemblyman.
