Happy 52nd Birthday Malaysia!

in Celebration

Malaysia. A land that still amazes me. With lush diversity of race, ethnicity, religion, beliefs and culture. All intertwined with personal upbringings, struggles and achievements. From Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, Father of Independence to Tun Mahathir bin Mohamad, the 20th & 21st century revolutionary & modernization premier – Malaysian has seen a lot of progress from infrastructure to economical policy. There are stigma’s surrounding further development of Malaysia in terms of racial disagreements, re-structuring of our educational system and freedom of speech. This is clearly a platform every Malaysian’s can work towards success in building a nation without prejudices. Hand in hand, we can make Malaysia a better place for all of us, to live in co-existence.

Happy 52nd Birthday Malaysia 🙂

Oh! You’re from Malaysia too? Great. ^^ Our country did come a long way huh? Hopefully we all treasure the peace and tranquility we have, appreciate one another although we’re from different races — that’s part of our country’s attraction, to live in harmony until today.
