This is one of my Jedi Masters. Her name is Jamaliah Saidon. The following are fragments of insights on her Jedi power.

She is a true gardener, whatever she plants turn into awesome natural energy, and in this case, into an award. Her garden was awarded 2nd place in the whole State of Perak in 1995. She was in her mid 60s then.

Another award for her garden. ]This time in 2002, 1st. place in the district of South Perak.

She was also the first Malay women to run her own tailoring shop in the town of Teluk Intan. She was in her 30s then when she set up her own brand 'Jamaliah Noordin' in the late 60s. In the 70s, she moved her shop to a bigger space, in a shop row behind the iconic leaning tower of Teluk Intan. She also trained young women. 

("Learning business by sewing")

While pursuing her passion, my father was always behind her, supporting.

"Confidence and support from husband, source of success"

"Age is not an obstacle in keeping on running a business"

 She rejuvenated her business at the age of 66, after she was asked to move out from her shop behind the leaning tower of Teluk Intan (shop demolished). She never gave up. She kept on reinventing herself. Her ideas never stop, even in her 70s. 

"Plastic flowers attract customers"

Her love for animals was legendary. She even made some money by spreading her love.

"Senior citizen sleeps with chicken"

I used to help her around in gardening.... experience the zen of keeping balance.

So how did she become such a Jedi? 

Lots of hard and smart works + lots of doa or prayers...

supplemented by

...constant zikir (invocation).
