Marina Mahathir: 'Happy 92nd birthday to mummy, the strong steady hand behind us all'

PETALING JAYA: Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir wished her mother, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali, a "happy birthday" as she turned 92 today.

"Happy 92nd birthday to my mummy, the strong steady (and often funny) hand behind us all but most especially dad.

"What would any of us do without your wisdom, support and love?" she said on her Facebook post on Thursday (July 12).

The message on her Facebook post was accompanied by a photo of Dr Siti Hasmah dressed up in pink and matched with a pearl necklace and earrings.

Marina also ended her Facebook post with several hashtags calling Dr Siti Hasmah #mymummysthebest, #arealtrouper and #therealsuperpower.

On Tuesday (July 10), Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad celebrated his 93rd birthday.

Marina took to social media to convey her birthday greetings.

"Nobody can fully know what it took to get back in the game, go out there and fight and then roll your sleeves up to work to save our beloved Malaysia.

"I'm proud of many things you've achieved but nothing has made me prouder than seeing you still willing to listen and learn from your new colleagues," she said.

Dr Mahathir, in an interview with Bernama, had also said that his beloved wife was a person who always remembered his special day.
