Selamat Hari Malaysia.

September 16, 2008

And indeed, a good thing it is that Hari Malaysia was selamat (safe) this year.

Hari Malaysia – Malaysia day: the day when the country of Malaysia was formed. Not as widely celebrated as Hari Merdeka – Independence Day but nevertheless a highly important commemorative date.

Why isn’t it celebrated like Merdeka? Again, a governing body and its selective memory, I suppose. We hardly learned about it in school. I don’t even know who mooted the idea. Tunku Abdul Rahman I assume.

Anyway I don’t really have much to comment on about this. Just that we should be more active in commemorating the date when Sabah and Sarawak joined into the Federation of Malay States to form the Malaysia we know and are (proud/ashamed, pick your poison) to be today.

Happy Malaysia Day.
