MERDEKA!


Happy Merdeka!!

It's our Independence Day.

For all the mess that's going on in the political scene, all I have to say is Malaysia is hitting puberty at 51!

So now we are seeing all these signs of growing, painful as it is,

Changes and challenges,

Emotional turmoils,

A lot of uncertainties,

Still struggling with an identity crisis,

Can't get your priorities right,

Can't stand to be criticised,

and

Where's all the money?!!


Seems to have all these physical developments but the maturity definitely still not there.
Looks like a "grown-up" but still thinks like a child.

Doesn't that sound like a teenager's set of problems?
Anyway, ...

Happy Birthday, Malaysia.

Hope you bloom into a beautiful nation that is useful to the rest of the world ant not just be stuck in the rut always looking only inwards.

Beautiful sentiments hun

I need to start a proper merdeka tradition, we have to start somewhere with the changing of the mindset.

Happy birthday Malaysia, may you grow up as beautiful as your citizens feel you are.

Lia,

I know what you mean.

Most of the time when we read or hear the news we cannot help but slap our forehead and wonder what's wrong with these people (Malaysians). Then when it comes to Merdeka we tell our kids how we should be proud to be Malaysians. So where do the horizons meet?

Sigh...
