MELBOURNE (June 26, 2013): Malaysian-born Penny Wong has been elevated to become the third most powerful politician in Australia upon her election as leader in the Australian Senate.
Penny Wong was born in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia to a Malaysian Chinese Hakka father and an Australian mother. She moved to Adelaide, South Australia at the age of eight with her mother and younger brother Toby after her parents separated. Toby went on to become a chef in Adelaide.
In Malaysia, guess what the brother/ sister would usually be benefited or be made into when his/ her sibling was elected a federal or state minister?
