It is 31st August again and this is the day we always look forward to. My country achieved its independence 55 years ago on this day after 170 years under colonial rule. Today marks the 55th independence day. It is the pride of every Malaysian to say that our country is progressing well in developments and economy.
Malaysia is a multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-religous country. Here, we live in peace and harmony despite our diverse backgrounds. There are so many races and ethnics; the three major groups are the Malays, Chinese and Indians. We are also multi-lingual but united by the official language Bahasa Malaysia (Malay language).
My country with a population of 28 million people is comprising of 13 states and 3 federal territories; 11 states with 2 federal territories in Peninsular Malaysia, 2 states with 1 federal territory on the island of Borneo which is shared with 2 countries, Brunei and Kalimantan Indonesia. West and East Malaysia are separated by the South China Sea.
I love my country and proud to be a Malaysian. I wish my fellow Malaysians, "Selamat Hari Merdeka!" (Happy Independence Day!) May our country progresses well and achieves more in future and may we always live in peace and harmony and economically stable. Let there be truly a one-Malaysia concept which is inspired by our beloved Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Selamat Hari Merdeka!
