Here’s a little something that I got from the wikipedia.
The second son of Tuanku Abdul Rahman ibni Almarhum Tuanku Muhammad, Malaysia’s first Agong, he was the first of four children by his Eurasian wife Dulcie Campbell or better known as Che’ Engku Maimunah binti Abdullah. Having studied at the Malay College Kuala Kangsar, he graduated from the University of Nottingham before attending Balliol College, Oxford and the LSE. During his reign as the ruler of Negeri Sembilan, Tuanku Jaâ€™afar focused his attention on the problems of the people and the administration of the state. In handling the socio-economic affairs of the state, Tuanku Jaâ€™afar directed his attention to the industry and public housing sectors so as to improve the living standard of the people. As a result, several new housing areas were developed among which is Taman Tuanku Jaâ€™afar which includes an industrial area and a golf course of international standard, Taman Tuanku Ampuan Najihah in Sungai Gadut and the Mambau housing project.
