He has been involved in drama for more than three decades, having written more than 200 plays for stage, radio and television, including Puncak, Malaikat, Selimut Putih and Vanda Miss Joaquim. He has received numerous awards for his plays, including the prestigious Cultural Medallion in 1986 for his contributions to theatre.
