Sofia Jane has been sharing lots of old photos from her days as the most
sought-after actress in Malaysia, and she apparently has a reason for walking
down the memory lane.

In an interview with Astro AWANI recently, the
actress, who has returned to Malaysia from Melbourne, shared that she began
sharing the photos after finding them in her late mother Allahyarham Noreen
Abdullah’s collection. Said the actress, her mother had been documenting every
single one of her work in the industry since she first started back when she
was 17.

“I am very thankful that she kept everything. The reason why I
shared it was for the sake of the younger generation. I consider it my
memorabilia,” she said.

who used the Twitter handle MemHanyut, admitted that she still kept it close
to her heart all the experience and things she learned along the way when she
was actively working in the industry in the 90s.

“I never expected to
receive bags upon bags of letters and postcards from fans. But those were our
“social media” at the time. It was through these letters that we create our
relationship with them,” she said, adding that she is still touched every time
she read those messages from her fans.

The “Perempuan, Isteri, dan…”
actress stated that she is thankful to be a part of the industry.

“I was
17 when I started. I knew very few about acting then, but I never stopped
learning and gaining experiences. That is why I have been sharing them on
Twitter. They are all very special and personal to me,” she said.
