Masidi said Shahelmey, who is also the Sabah Health exco, would monitor and coordinate with the Health Ministry regarding facilities and emergency needs in hospitals in the state from time to time.

  1. Have you ever considered publishing an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have a blog based on the same topics you discuss and would love to have
    you share some stories/information. I know my viewers would appreciate your work.

    If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me
    an email.

  2. I think this is among the most significant information for me.
    And i am glad reading your article. But want to remark on some general things, The site style is wonderful, the articles is really nice :
    D. Good job, cheers

  3. of course like your website but you have to take a look at the spelling
    on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with
    spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to
    tell the truth then again I will certainly come back again.

  4. I’m not sure why but this site is loading incredibly slow
    for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  5. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Feel free to visit my blog post – Garage & car (mobilasecondcluj.ro)

  6. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s difficult to get that
    “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads
    super fast for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!

  7. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a
    lot more useful than ever before.
