Merdeka!

Malaysia turns 49 on August 31. Happy Merdeka Day to all Malaysians and friends!!!

The country has come a long way since the late Tunku Abdul Rahman declared independence from the British. The British were not the only colonial masters. The country was under foreign control -- Portugese, Dutch, British, Japanese and back to the British -- for nearly 450 years since the Portugese first landed in Malacca in 1511.

What has Malaysia achieved and what's the road ahead? Daddy will try to write something concise and hopefully meaningful later this week after all the national day wining and dining. :-)

it's a great picture. but what is it that we should remember to celebrate? the politicians think of nationalism and patriotism, but that is to manipulate us. it is freedom that we celebrate. so, i celebrate your picture for its message of freedom from oppression. but i'm sorry, i don't celebrate malaysia as a cultural and political construct...
