Redzuawan Ismail

An outstanding person that brings up Malaysia's name

This man is known as Chef Wan at his best. The original holder of the name Redzuawan Bin Ismail, Chef Wan was born in Singapore on 1958. His family decided to migrate and settle in Malacca back in 1970s.

Not many of us know that this guy is not originally a student of culinary but accountancy program. Now, can you imagine that? from mathematical field into culinary arts. Like...what else do you know man?

This man is actually a mixblood with some javanese on his father's side and peranakan from his mother. If you ever wonder whats up with his mak-nenek-style of talking, perhaps this could answered your question. Chef Wan is best known with his famous style of talking and the humorous attitude that he always show in front of the audience.

His parents met each other at the Royal Air Force base in Singapore and get married on 1957. When his father had been transferred to work for Malaysia Air Force, it was then Chef Wan had developed his skills and taste of cooking especially for his 6 younger brother.

It was there, at the Air Force base, where he first find out the opportunity to involve in culinary and entreprenuership as well as the audience captive the chance.

However, his father was against his passion of cooking and make a living from it. That is why he further his study in accounting and have to put aside his passion aside at first.

...and who is in this world would love to do anything just to fulfill their dream and passion? Chef Wan is one of the good example of people whose never give up on what their dream on. 



In order to complete this task, I have provide several objective to be achieve:

 To introduce the people with outstanding personnel existed in Malaysia.

Even though Chef Wan is considered as the chef celebrity among Malaysian and probably well known by most of the Asian, still there are possibility where people might be curious in knowing his full name, where he came from and what life does he live before entering into cooking and before he became the great guy in culinary.

 To inform people about the background of the personnel that might be unseen and not known for all this while

Everyone would probably know about Chef Wan on the surface but not about his background. Perhaps the unseen one. The history or the story behind of his life and whether or not the stories are related to his career in this world

To discover the achievements reached by the personnel in Malaysia and all around the world.

This is to emphasize or exposing to the people the list of success and achievements of Chef Wan since the first time he became the chef until now, where he managed to be recognized by almost all around the world.

To explore the hardship or the struggle that might be faced by the personnel along the way striving for succeed.

To identify the hardness and find out how he managed to overcome the problem and standstill after struggling with problems and went through them until the very end.
