When he was contacted by the Malay Mail, Luqman said he was grateful for the Health DG’s willingness to meet him for a chat, “It was a moment of my life that I couldn’t believe that I was meeting Dr. Noor Hisham face to face.”

“I was very excited and happy to see him,” he said. 

In a recent post, Luqman said: “Finally a dream come true!” when he expressed his excitement when meeting with Dr. Noor Hisham at the Health Ministry in Putrajaya.

He told the Malay Mail that the portrait of the Health DG was meant as a tribute to him and the nation’s medical frontliners for their hard work and dedication to Malaysia. 

Luqman also thanked Starbucks Malaysia for arranging the meeting session with Dr. Noor Hisham.
