Dr. Noor Hisham, who also serves as the President of the Malaysia Medical Council, embraced his retirement with grace and vigor. However, he didn't linger in leisure for long. In an inspiring turn of events, he has once again taken center stage in the medical world. Currently, he holds the esteemed position of Chairman of the World Health Organization (WHO) Standing Committee on Health Emergency, Prevention, Preparedness, and Response (SCHEPPR).

But Dr. Noor Hisham's dedication doesn't stop there. He has remained active on social media, sharing his extensive medical knowledge and reposting articles related to healthcare. His virtual presence became a beacon of hope and information for many.

In a heartwarming twist, one of Dr. Noor Hisham's recent social media posts managed to transcend his medical persona and touched the hearts of Malaysians in an unexpected way. The post, shared on platform X, featured a serene photo of Putrajaya, and it began innocently with a comment about the cloudy morning sky and its potential for rain.

Then, to the surprise and delight of many, Dr. Noor Hisham ventured into uncharted territory, using Gen Z slang with enthusiasm. He casually dropped the phrase, "Another day another slay."

The post took social media by storm, with Gen Z netizens responding in a playful and meme-filled frenzy. Some were in disbelief, questioning if the former Health DG had indeed uttered those words. Others joined in the fun, creating memes and humorous replies.

Dr. Noor Hisham's newfound "Gen Z era" did not go unnoticed, and many joked that he had been "infected by the world of slay." Even the official X account of the local animation franchise BoBoiBoy joined the excitement, posting an animated image of Dr. Noor Hisham from his cameo in a COVID-19 public service announcement with the caption, "Slaaaaay!"

In an adorable twist, Dr. Noor Hisham responded to this post with more Gen Z-style slang, saying, "Chill and glow-up to make a big difference in Gen Z," a statement that, with all due respect, left everyone amused and puzzled.

This delightful social media interaction not only showcased Dr. Noor Hisham's dedication to connecting with the younger generation but also highlighted his endearing and approachable personality. It served as a heartwarming reminder that even in the midst of a global health crisis, moments of light-heartedness and unity can emerge from the unlikeliest of places.

Malaysians from all walks of life found themselves loving Dr. Noor Hisham not only for his tireless work during the COVID-19 pandemic but also for his unexpected and endearing foray into Gen Z culture. It's a reminder that even in challenging times, laughter and connection can bring us closer together.
