Mohammad Nur Aliff, 10, who is from Miri, Sarawak and was diagnosed with the ailment three years ago, arrived at Seri Perdana here at 8.30am accompanied by his parents and grandmother as well as representatives of the Children Wish Society of Malaysia.

At the one-hour event, Najib also showed Mohammad Nur Aliff his study and an arowana fish in his aquarium, much to the delight of the boy who also likes fish.

The prime minister later gave him "duit raya".

Met by reporters, Mohammad Nur Aliff said he enjoyed very much the meeting with the country's number one leader.

His father Omar Bakar, 55, a land surveyor, said he was thankful to the prime minister for finding time to meet his son.

He said this was the first time he and his wife, Norhidayatul Farhana Abdullah, 38, came to the peninsula and said that he had never expected that he would one day get to meet the leader he has much respect for.

The meeting cheered Mohammad Nur Aliff, he said, adding that he hoped that the encounter with the prime minister would be a moment for him to cherish for a lifetime.
