Happy Merdeka Day
Jalur Gemilang ... our flag. I used to be proud to display the flag(s) on my bike ... or my working desk. It has been few years I did not do such ... the feeling is no longer there. We are NOT free ... not MERDEKA ... to sincerely place our emotions ... of patriotism!!
Tanah tumpahnya darahku,
Rakyat hidup bersatu dan maju,
Raja kita selamat bertakhta,
Raja kita selamat bertakhta
We used to be so proud, standing still singing aloud this simple song, but built in our heart. Yes, the love of our beloved country ... but after 30-years of murdering our patriotism spirit by our leaders, we are all down. They will not step down, and will continue to hold-on to the power .... to control the RAKYAT, the citizens ... adding more immigrants, and in order to win elections, our Malaysia's leaders will DO ANYTHING at all cost. Sigh ... reminding me of recent May election.
Anyway, I am still very proud to be a Malaysian. I am Malaysian first, then Chinese. My Malay is better than my Chinese, you see. I will be seeing 14 of my old-friends ... some I have not met for about 30 years?! Wow ... a great way to celebrate MERDEKA day
