Pak Samad (Abdul Samad Ismail) -24th April 1925 – 4th September 2008


Goodbye, Pak Samad...

The small window of opportunity you opened in my mind and heart runs deep as a journalist and a human in being.

The memory of the heady days during my teething period as a Broadcast Journalist in TV3's newsroom years ago is still fresh in my mind.

I still remember you remarking of my presence in an obscure corner of the newsroom whenever Dire Strait's 'Sultans of Swing' blared on the 'mini-compo'.

"Aarh, si Aziz itu ada ni...tu ha lagu dia dah tengah main!," Pak Samad would say many-a-times.
