GROWING up wasn’t easy for Pajilawati Sakibun. She lived in a rural village in Kudat, Sabah and is the daughter of a traditional fisherman. Her father was the sole breadwinner of their family and had to fend for his wife and nine children.
On days when his catch was small or when he was unable to go to sea, all their family would have was rice with salt. This story was shared by Skim Latihan 1Malaysia (SL1M) secretariat head Norashikin Ismail during a recent press conference.
