Happy Birthday Malaysia!

Today is our country's 54th Independence Day. Happy Birthday Malaysia! So much progress have been achieved since independence on 31 st August 1957. On every 31st August is our national day to commemorate the independence of Malaysia from British colonial rule in 1957.

This is how it was like on Saturday morning 31st August 1957 when our first prime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman announced the independence and chanting "Merdeka!" seven times at the Merdeka Stadium, Kuala Lumpur.

This is Malaysia today.

I am proud to be a Malaysian living in a multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-religous country.

Happy Independence Day, Malaysia!

*Yesterday, Malaysian Muslims celebrated the first day of Eid this year. I would like to wish "Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir Batin" to my family members and friends and "Happy Eid" to everyone who celebrates it, wherever you are.
