While the immediate reaction is to feel a surge of happiness because today is a day off work, let's not forget that 53 years ago, Malaysia gained her independence. A historic moment and most of our fathers were students during this time. I wonder whether they realised the full impact of going to the stadium and waving flags and shouting "Merdeka". We may not be perfect and we may have our internal problems but I am proud of Malaysia and proud to be Malaysian. Selamat Hari Kemerdekaan ke 35. May you continue to strive to be better and I pray for peace and harmony for you today and always.
