What makes us proud...


I've been reading quite a number of posts about our Independence Day on 31st and I can't help but to be sarcastic about it. To me, Merdeka is just another Public Holiday (I nearly wrote pubic) and I'm not trying to be rude. After we have gained independence, what have we achieved today? Look at the government - what a mess! How about the people, the citizens, whose ancestors have worked so hard to achieve independence? We are moving backwards, poverty still looming and standards of living have not really improved. No wonder Singapore had to fight for their independence from us!

But you know, I do have some proud phrases to praise our country.

  1. There's still places with FREE parking!
  2. You get discounts for paying/not paying summons!
  3. The government taxes you for owning credit cards!
See, we are indeed an unique country! Oh well, I'm not all that mean either. Actually on the eve of Merdeka, I was at a friend's house for a countdown party where we pop champagnes, drink wine and grilled some Kobe beef while waiting for the clock to strike midnight. When the time comes, we did a remake of Tunku Abdul Rahman shouting the word "Merdeka" with on high spirits (pun intended).

Everyone went home sober and safe.
*the Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial that I brought along was a big letdown :(*

You actually celebrated? Well, I was out for dinner but celebrating the event was the last thing on our minds - not in the light of recent happenings. All the negative sentiments...spreading like cancer. It certainly looks like it's going to be worse and when hell breaks loose, there will be no winners...only losers. I'm glad I'm on this side of the country...like the previous time.
