A Short Tribute to Kak Wan..You Will be Missed.

I think I speak for a lot of people when I say we owe Kak Wan a mountain debt of gratitude. When all was lost, you kept on going. For years you suffer, while your husband languish in jail, you not only kept your family together, you also pushed the struggle against all odds.

You remain steadfast when it seems the situation was hopeless. When people were about to give up, you didn't and you inspire the rest of us to continue. Without the perseverance you have personally demonstrated, we may not have come to the point we are at right now.

Imagine, after 2004, if Kak Wan wanted to call it quits, she would have taken the UMNO deal and Anwar will probably be just another footnote in history. But she remained steadfast and led the party when everything else has failed. She had only God in her heart, I imagine, and that was enough for her.

Again, congratulations to Kak Wan and Izzah and Anwar's entire family for enduring such inhumanity and barbarity subjected to their family for the last 10 years. Only God knows the trauma that they had to go through.

She sends a stern warning to all the dictators of the world: You can mess with the people but you can't mess with a mother protecting her family. She was the mother that took on the dictator and prevailed.

Kak Wan resigned when her popularity is at it's maximum. She will go down as a cult figure in history as the likes of John F Kennedy, Al Gore, Cybil Shepard (yes I meant to say this), James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, Franklin Delanor Roosevelt, Nelson Mandela, The Beatles,Paul McArtney, Lynyrd Skynyd, Jimi Hendrix, Sting, Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, Christopher Reeve,Bill Cosby, Jeremy Irons, Geena Davis, Thelma and Louise, Bonnie and Clyde, the guy who sang the song "Henry the VII" and maybe Alexander the Great.

Not to mention she achieved all this while having the fun playing a role as a grandmother. We will miss Kak Wan. I vote we appoint her as a Senator and then we can still see her in the public limelight and fight for social issues like clean water, better healthcare etc.

Only God can repay you for all your sacrifice for without which such victory cannot be any sweeter.

  1. nicely said..beautiful!

  2. Tahniah to Anwar and Kak Wan.
    It was sheer hard work . A long 10 bitter years !
    However it is not over yet.
    Kak Wan still have a heavy burden .
    As the other "party" is busy planning more problems to Anwar and PR.

    I as a Malaysian truly and gratefully say thank you to Permatang Pauh .

    Totally agree, though I feel it's unnecessary to suggest what sort of issues Kak Wan might choose to focus on :-)

    Thank you for expressing on our behalf how much we love and admire this incredible woman behind an extraordinary man.


  4. What will they do next?
    This is what Pandikar Amin said, as reported in The Star today:
    "I do not see any urgency for me to fix a quick date. For all you
    know, the newly elected MP may want to go for a holiday first,
    or even for an umrah before coming to the Dewan Rakyat," he
    said yesterday.

    a`uzhoo billah!

    This isn't a BN/UMNO candidate, what Umrah what holiday is it the same -
    Like the late Dt. Mazlan visiting Umrah while soliciting the aid and giving thanks to deviants under the Devil's charm.
    These vagrants in UMNO believe performing Umrah with other peoples money and loads of ill deed knowingly and deliberately conjured is the way all Muslims behave.
    Well I have news for the Monafik; DSAI won fair and square therefore his first calling is to be present in the Dawan ASAP.
    PKR responsibility is to the people which is meaningful and genuine change.
    GOD will be pleased, trust me.

    Go to hell! Zoo Keeper, Open the doors of the Dewan Encik Pandikar Amin and stop using phony excuses. You Shameless monafik.

    Stop insulting our nation's intelligence and institutions. Let us urge our KING to step in now. Swear DSAI in at the His Majesty's Royal residence its enough.

  5. transcending all race and religion, my thoughts and strength for both of you!

  6. Agree with the proposal.

    But on the other hand i feel it is not necessary as she will be 1st lady in due course and we will se as much of her and her fine work.

    I rather see a stately 1st lady than one running all over the place with the work heap on her via her appointment.

  7. Wise said!

    It almost made me cry when I read the tribute...its true what they said.."Tangan yang mengayun buaian boleh menggoncangkan dunia!"

    Kak Wan is really truly amazing 'wanita solehah' who stand by his man and her faith. I pray that me and my children would be like her....full of patient and have faith...Allah will lead us to victory in His own way.

  8. waaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    She juz like a mother to's...WE MALAYSIAN gonna MISS her very much...

  9. If Speaker Pandikar, the BN/Umno regime or the Police think they can intimidate or thwart the Rakyats Long March to Putrajaya, they better think again. Mr. Speaker, be a good Muslim. Get DSAI sworn in as MP within the next 48 hours or else face the wrath of the Rakyat. What you gonna do when Makkal Sakti (People's Power) runs wild on you!

  10. yes, she is a truly amazing woman.

    she makes malaysians proud.

  12. Thank You for this tribute to DR Wan Azizah,on behalf of all of us.I simply cant find the words to describe her selfless sacrifices for the people.I am impressed to see her exude so much confidence.She deserves to be the 1st lady any time.In the same breath I hope Anwar will keep up his promises to the rakyat,as we will be watching him closely from now on.CONGRATULATIONS DSAI and WAN AZIZAH.A big THANK YOU to the great souls of PP,all right thinking Malaysians and the bloggers.God Bless.

  14. Salam Tulang Besi
    That was an honest and lovely tribute which i fully agree except for the part where you include Lynard Skynard in the group of cilt figures. Lynard Skynard journey to greater stardom was cut short by the tragic plane crash. Anyway, hidup kak Wan! You rock!!!!!!!!

    Free bird

  15. Semasa PKR dalam keadaan nyawa-nyawa ikan dan hampir terkubur selepas PRU 12 2004, Kak Wan dan pasukannya dengan dedikasi yang cukup tinggi berjaya membina semula dan memperkukuhkan parti sehingga begitu gah pada hari ini.

    Banyak sifat-sifat terpuji dalam diri Kak Wan ni. Walaupun beliau seorang 'public figure' tapi hampir tidak pernah kedengaran pula cerita-cerita negatif mengenai beliau

    Tahniah Kak Wan, Tahniah Anwar, Tahniah PAS, Tahniah DAP, warga Permatang Pauh dan semua rakyat Malaysia

  16. Well said Tulang Besi, also agreed with sani, KAK WAN is like a mother to all malaysian,keep it up we all love you, May Allah Continue To Bless And Protect You And Your Family Forever.We are looking forward for DSAI to be our beloved PM OF MALAYSIA.GOD BLESS MALAYSIA.

  17. A Sinking “Titanic” (BN) in Malaysia? (The show has just begun!)

    Malaysia’s Titanic (BN) was deemed unsinkable when it was first launched. Even when it hit an iceberg on 8 March 2008, it was so hard to accept that the ship will sink. When all efforts to save the ship from sinking was finally abandoned, the Captain (DSAB) just stood silently awaiting the fate as a forlorn man. He was hoping the Carpentia or some other nearby ships will come in time to save the passengers. It was sad to see the Captain firing off some distress flares to alert the Carpentier, but the Carpentier’s Captain (DSNTR) was just not convinced that the Titanic was in distress.

    In between is a love story of Leonardo DiCaprio (DSAI) and Kate Winslet (Azizah). Azizah refused to abandon her love, even though many a times, events show she should just save herself. She held on to hopes, hoping against hope that she and her love can pull thru and both will survive this tragedy. Both suffered mentally and emotionally and in the end, it was Azizah left to tell the tale of a great man who sacrificed himself to save her.

    As for the crew of the Titanic (Little Napoleons) and their friends who are rich and powerful corporate figures, who helped run the ship, did you see the desperation when they found out that the ship is really sinking. Most of them scramble to save their lives and abandon ship and some, with loads of money found they can’t buy anything they wanted, even a place on a lifeboat to save their lives (TDM migration). But not all, for there was a few brave Napoleons who tried to show they are committed to the name of Titanic (BN) and the show continues.

    There was an old couple who just lay in bed waiting for the ship to sink (MIC & PPP) abandoned by the young and too old to move around anymore. There were also musicians still playing the ship’s songs (MCA, PBB, LDP, PBRS, PRS, SAPP, SPDP, SUPP, UPKO) and died like true musicians dedicated to their role of love for music. There were also some crew (GERAKAN) still working to plug the leaks at the bottom of the ship until they themselves died thinking they were heroes not knowing the ship cannot be saved just by plugging some holes.

    Do you know who was the director of Titanic (BN) show? James Cameron (TDM).

    Did you know this show was shown around the world?

    Did you know Malaysia has some of the best actors and actresses and supporting casts?

    Anyway, it was just a movie, for the real show has only just begun!

  18. Salam buat semua,

    Tahniah Kak Wan di atas kemenangan suami mu yang disayangi dan dihormati selalu oleh seluruh rakyat Malaysia, terutama warga PP dan juga pendokong Reformasi.
    Tapi tak tahu lah pula dengan puak-puak UMNO tu.
    Sportingkah tidak mereka tu menerima kekalahan yang memalukan?
    Hah, telan lah air liur basi korang tu.
    Bila RAKYAT dah sedar dari tipu daya mereka tu, alahhhh..... apa aje yang dihidangkan oleh puak UMNO tu, semuanya tak sedap belaka.
    Gula-gula jadi pahit, peria pula yang jadi manis. He, he, he...
    Eh... si pondan Khairy tu mana?
    Hah sekarang baru si Najib tu tahu. Banyaknya orang Melayu yang sokong PR khususnya Parti Keadilan.
    Dia cakap tu hari...kan, orang Melayu tak da yang sokong PR.
    Hanya DSAI dan konco-konconya saja.
    Hah! sekarang terbeliak biji mata si Altantuyaa tu.
    Tengok muka dia kat TV semalam! Sedih dan sunggul aje. Hah! nak main sumpah lagi? Makan diri lah tu.
    Syabas Kak Wan sekali lagi kerana sanggup berkorban untuk suami. Tapi tolong tengok-tengok lah kat si Nurul Izzah tu.
    Dia yang perlukan bimbingan sebenar dalam arena politik ni. Maklum lah budak baru.
    Salam Reformasi.
    Tapi tolong lah jenguk-jenguk jua kami kat Sarawak ni. Jangan fikir semua orang Sarawak tak pandai berpolitik.
    Dah banyak belajar daripada anak-anak Kedah, Perak, Selangor dan khususnya Kelantan, yang mengajar kat sekolah di Sarawak ni tentang ilmu persilatan dalam bidang politik.

  19. yes,THE MOTHER is certainly smiling..bro tulang besi,u forgot to mention josephine de beauharnais(napoleons wife) and eleanor roosevelt..aah,a new spirit has descended in malaysia..spirt of brotherhood,unity,justice,equality regardeless of race and religion..hidup rakyat!!tahniah dsai!!

  20. Beautifully written tribute to Kak Wan.
    Thanks, Tulang Besi.

  21. Seperti yang kita saksikan di piliharaya kecil Permatang Pauh, BN telah menggerakkan usaha bersekala besar bagi mematahkan kemaraan Anwar ke Dewan Parlimen.

    Berbagai-bagai usaha telah dilakukan oleh BN bagi menyekat Anwar memenangi pilihanraya kecil Permatang Pauh, termasuklah tuduhan-tuduhan yang mungkin diada-adakan dan direka-reka bagi menjatuhkan kredibiliti Anwar, dari kes liwat hinggalah ke kes rasuah.

    Walaupun tuduhan-tuduhan itu belum dibicarakan dan belum diputuskan oleh makamah, tetapi ia sudah cukup untuk mengoyahkan kepercayaan orang ramai terutamanya pengundi di Permatang Pauh terhadap kewibawaan Anwar.

    Kelantangan dan kepetahan Anwar sangat digeruni oleh kerajaan BN yang memerintah, oleh itu BN ada sebab yang kuat untuk cuba sedaya yang mungkin bagi menyekat Anwar dapat bercakap di Dewan Parlimen.

    Melihat kepada sambutan pengundi-pengundi di Permatang Pauh hari ini yang memberansangkan kepada Anwar memang sukar untuk BN menang dalam pilihanraya kecil itu. Nampaknya usaha melalui cara demokrasi memang BN tidak dapat menyekat kemaraan Anwar ke Parlimen.

    Pilihan yang ada kepada kerajaan BN selepas ini bagi menyekat Anwar ialah dengan menggunakan penjara dan makamah sahaja. Kita tidak berasa pelik kalau selepas ini kerajaan BN akan menggunakan BPR, makamah dan polis untuk menahan Anwar dalam penjara bagi kesalahan yang diada-adakan atau direka-reka.
    Dalam masa yang sama kerajaan BN juga sedang dan akan menghadapkan beberapa orang wakil rakyat dan wakil parlimen dari Pakatan Rakyat ke makamah atas kesalahan rasuah dan salah laku seks yang sengaja diada-adakan dalam usaha untuk menghilangkan kelayakan mereka menjadi wakil rakyat dan wakil parlimen.
    Apabila ramai wakil rakyat dan wakil parlimen dari Pakatan Rakyat hilang kelayakan, maka bertambah sukarlah Pakatan Rakyat untuk membentuk kerajaan seperti yang telah dirancang oleh Anwar sebelum ini.

    Taktik memenjarakan Anwar yang digunakan pada tahun 1998 mungkin akan berulang lagi. Hanya tembok penjara saja yang dapat melenyapkan suara Anwar.

  22. Yes, we must not forget how she struggled on to bring up 6 kids while having to suffer so much from a Dictator and the whole govt machinery.

    Now let her have some rest and when the time comes, she will be the Mother for all Malaysian children.

  23. She is the great giant in every Malaysian's heart.

  24. A man's salvation is A GOOD WOMAN - Anwar is truly blessed!
