Walking around the bookstore.. something caught my eye: the latest edition of the Malaysia Book of Records. This one was published in June 2008, and oh yes, our very own Datuk Nicol was on the cover(not to mention right in the middle!), along the likes of Dr.Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor- Malaysia's first astronaut , and Datuk Michelle Yeoh- best known for her roles in the 1997 James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies, and the Academy Award-winning film Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.Top row: Mawi, Dr.Sheikh, Datuk Siti Nurhaliza, Guang Liang,

Nicol holds 3 records
1) First Back-to-Back World Champion
2) Youngest Asian Champion
3) First World Number One Player
Malaysia's current number one men's squash player and recent CIMB Malaysian Open winner Ong Beng Hee holds the record for First World Junior Champion.
Of course, let us not forget that Nicol was 'knighted' with the Darjah Setia Pangkuan Negeri (DSPN) which carries the title "Datuk" in July. -Making her the youngest Datuk in the Penang state, possibly even the youngest in Malaysia.
And in June, Nicol was conferred with the 'Order of Merit' by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin. With the conferment, Nicol became the first recipient of the award which was established on June 26, 1975. The award is limited to 10 recipients who have made significant contributions in arts, science and humanity and is given to Malaysians who are renowned at national and international levels.
