Mak Lah was a full-time housewife. She was a petite woman and soft spoken. She never scolded anyone when we visited her.
She blinked too frequent, like there had always been dust in her eyes.
She always cooked for us and I enjoyed eating at her house when we visited her family in Semabok, Malacca, during school holidays.
Her house is still extant near Masjid Semabok where her husband had served as Imam Masjid Semabok. Her daughter Salmah lives in the proximity of Mak Lah's house - Kak Salmah lived behind Mak Lah's house.
Update 21 Dec 2014 (from Kamariah isteri Farid):
Kak Bibah's house is beside her parent's house.
Mak Lah's husband was a famous man. Even Malay folks living in Perth in Western Australia in 1989 knew him as their Qadhi. Her husband is Cikgu/Imam Haji Mohd Yusuf bin Buntal of Semabok.
Mak Lah suffered a stroke and was warded at Hospital Melaka. She passed away on 26 October 2001, aged 74.
