Plintik

"Plintik" is a short biographical documentary regarding Salbiah Wir. She was given the nickname “Plintik” by her mother when she was young and has been commonly known as that since. She is known to be someone who is strong as she barely cried, preserved on and stayed patient despite the life challenges she had gone through. Married at a young age of 13 to her husband who is 20 years older than her, she got her first child at the age of 15. Life was difficult for her, especially after the death of her husband, as she faced poverty while supporting her 15 children. She had to work several jobs to earn enough income for her family, two of which was tailoring clothes and selling Malay delicacies. Her hard work paid off as her children grew up to be someone who is successful not only in terms of education and career wise but also in terms of moral and values. She also has aged gracefully and still inculcating morals and values to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Being a great mother that she is, she was awarded Jamiyah Exemplary Mother Award for the year 2000.
