Happy Independence Day Malaysia!


Today is the eve of our Independence Day. We will be turning 51 years old. Malaysia has indeed gone through many twists and turns under the British colony and Japanese occupation to a peaceful and harmonious multi-racial nation that's rich in culture and heritage.

Are Malaysians feeling the patriotism of Merdeka this year? I used to look forward to the celebrations every National Day, during my younger days. Previous National Day celebrations in Malaysia was always celebrated with plenty of fun and full of enthusiasm.

Speaking of patriotism, the joyful spirit and merry atmosphere is just missing this year and I just feel like any ordinary weekend as far as I'm concerned. Perhaps, it has got to do with the the current political scene and the bumbling way they handle the national issues, from social to the economy of this country.

My fervent hope is that there will be drastic change for the better soon. I just wish that nothing untowardly will happen on Merdeka Day and we all can enjoy a safe, peaceful holiday. Politics aside, let's take a moment to celebrate this auspicious occasion.

And last but not least, I wish all my Muslim friends “Selamat Berpuasa”.
