3. Our first prime minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, used his own money to build a halfway shelter for the escapees from the Railway of Death in Burma. To sustain the shelter, Tunku staged weekly plays on a Bangsawan stage to raise funds, along with his group of friends and assistants. They called themselves the “Young Men”.

4. The Tun honorary title is divided into two subcategories. The first category limits the number of holders to 25 people at one time, and the other to 35. Also, the wife of a Tun is referred to as Toh Puan.
