Happy Merdeka :)

Malaysia is celebrating it's 53rd independence day today, and in Malaysia, this day is fondly known as Merdeka Day :)

As much as I love my country, I see much "wrongs" in the political scenario that I doubt can be fixed within the years to come, especially regarding racial issues :( Although I know that we, the younger generation of Malaysians, should be taking charge of the nation, pushing our rights to shape the nation for a better tomorrow, I cannot fathom myself ending up another Teoh Beng Hock. There is much hype about his death, and the people are still asking for the truth, but the court case has yet to be resolved, and is still going on even though it is more than a year after his death in 17 July 2009. I do sincerely hope that his case will be resolved, and that the truth about his murder will be made known to all.

Talking about politics in Malaysia doesn't stop at racial-issues. Politics affect the nations' economy as well. I absolutely love this read; a keynote speech by Tengku Razaleigh early August titled "We were once Malaysians" I do urge everyone to read it, and judge for yourself how true his words are about the current developments of Malaysia, and how we, as a nation, are trailing off behind other nations in Asia. We're losing out economically, and that is a fact.

Okay, talks about politics always make me sad and that's not the way to celebrate my nations' independence. So, let me end this post with a funny video (which gamers will enjoy) made by a friend of mine.

Happy 53rd Merdeka to you Malaysia :)

p.s: Readers who are of legal age to vote, do register yourself as a voter, and use that vote to help make a little difference in our country :)

agree wiv KuLi.

My parents also told me that we were once MALAYSIANS. the 1 Msia spirit was really there that time, until those selfish politicians try to play around with racial issues & brainwashing people merely for their own benefits.

Joining politics? LOL

JayLeo: I'm not going to join politics for fear I might die like Teoh Beng Hock. LOL~ I Kiasi one (typical chinese :P)

Simon: Yes kindie-mate, I care :) But most of the times politics make me depressed so there are moments when I practice the saying "ignorance is bliss" and turn a blind eye on what's going on in the political scenario..LOL~

hey its a good thing to know there are more malaysian youths that care about the country. don't lose hope yet. =)

WenYi said...

JayLeo: Yup, its a depressing scenario indeed :(

Simon: I thought you were the one who's going to run for the election? I'll vote for YOU la....LOL

Danial: Thanks for the comment :) I think that many Malaysian youths actually do care about the country, but due to the lack of freedom of speech in our country, speaking of politics more or less became a taboo. Plus, most Malaysians are "kiasi" (takut-mati) (me included) so we rather keep our mouths shut and turn a blind eye to what's going on :S

~SiMoN~ said...
