My Chinese Name is Salina
Zalillah Mohd Taib was a Malay girl learning Mandarin in a Chinese school at a time when it was uncommon to do so. But she was never destined to take the conventional route. She stayed true to her Chinese education, right up to pursuing her degree at the prestigious National Taiwan University.
Her mastery of the language led her to meet and work with ministers, dignitaries and even royalty. She welcomed Tunku Abdul Rahman into her home and had tea with Chiang Kai-shek and his wife.
Zalilah has worked with the government, RTM, the Film Censorship Board and Film Appeals Board of Malaysia, the Girl Guides movement and Masjid Tun Abdul Aziz. Through those years, she has remained passionate about each chapter of her life. However, her greatest love, and the compass that has kept her in the right direction, has been her family.
