On Attraction

“Back then, he was this very sincere person, determined to make you do well. He was not selfish; he likes to see other people do well in their studies. I was attracted to know the man who wanted to see another girl do well.” – Tun Siti Hasmah

“She was the only Malay female student, maybe that is why I fell for her. There were six other male students, all of whom were always willing to help with her bags. I was raised in a family of majority men, so I do not know how to attract a woman. I look at my friends helping her with her bags, I joined in too. But I always teach her (lessons; revise), maybe that was what made our relationship close.” – Tun Mahathir


On Wildest Dreams

“I (thought I) married the boy from the ‘rice bowl’ state and returned as a doctor’s wife. It never crossed my mind (that I would become the wife of a prime minister).” – Tun Siti Hasmah


On Love And Marriage

“You must renew your vows, express your love for each other. It can be in different ways; young couples can be very romantic. You can express your love in other ways to ensure you still love him and he still loves you.” – Tun Siti Hasmah

“I trust my husband and he trusts me.” – Tun Siti Hasmah

“I think I can understand my husband’s career as a politician because we both start out as doctors. This career (doctor) sometimes causes my husband to be back home late, but I understand because I’m also a doctor. Regardless, we must believe and be tolerant towards our husband. You shouldn’t be jealous for no reason. What’s important is to find time to spend with our spouse and children.” – Tun Siti Hasmah

“Wherever I am, I prefer to be with her.” – Tun Mahathir


On Communication

There were also times when I saw her talking to another guy, and I felt jealous. Similarly, she would also be jealous when she sees me with another woman. But in the long run, we come to an understanding that nothing happened between the other people, that is how our relationship last.” – Tun Mahathir


On Acceptance

When your words carry meaning, you don’t have to say a lot. Their love has stood the test of time, and may they both continue to live happy, long lives. If there’s anything we learnt, it’s that having someone by your side through thick and thin is an experience to be cherished always, and that even if you’ve found that special someone, it’s not all smooth-sailing!
