Speaking of Merdeka, it doesn’t mean much to me nowadays. Back in primary school we did cook up some big celebration for the day but as I grew up and witnessed how the Malaysian society is going backwards in development, I’ve kind of lost faith in that Malaysia will be a developed country by 2020. It still remains as an elusive dream.
For the moment being, I just pray for the peaceful, skirmish-free coexistence of the people of Malaysia.
Happy 53rd Independence Day, Malaysia.
