"Laila Azwa Gadisku" novel was adapted to television film. Meanwhile, "Mira Edora" and "Pelangi Pagi" novels have been made into movie films with the title of "Mira Edora" and "Bicara Hati" respectively.[2]

Her first and one of her most well-known novel "Badai Semalam" (1968) was used as school textbook in Singapore and Malaysia.[3] The novel has been translated into English, "Storms of Yesterday", by Mahani Abdul Hamid in 1991 and Spanish, "Tormentos del ayer", by Alberto Balanza and Yahia in 2010. "Badai Semalam" was republished several times and the latest was in 2006 by Alaf21 in the nostalgic novel series. The English version was also republished in 2009 by Institut Terjemahan Negara Malaysia under the Malaysian Literature Series.[4]

“Merpati Putih Terbang Lagi" novel won a consolation prize in a writing contest in the celebration of ten years of Malaysia's independence. The novel has also been translated into Japanese by Tatsun Hoshino. "Exiled" novel has been nominated for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award in 1997.
