Merdeka!

Merdeka. MerDEka. MeRdEka. MErdEka. MerDekA. Merdeka. Merdeka. Merdeka. MeRdeka. Merdeka. MERdeka. MErDeka. MeRdeKa. MErdeKa. Merdeka. Merdeka. Merdeka. MErdeka. Merdeka. MerdEka. MerdEKa. Merdeka. Merdeka. Merdeka. Merdeka. MerDekA. MerdekA. Merdeka. MerDeKa. MeRdekA. Merdeka. Merdeka. Merdeka. MerDeka. Merdeka. MeRDeka. Merdeka. MerdeKA. Merdeka. Merdeka. Merdeka. Merdeka. Merdeka. Merdeka. MerdEkA. Merdeka. Merdeka. Merdeka. Merdeka. Merdeka …

Malaysia has been shouting the word 50 times since 1957. Comes 31st August 2008, it’s going to be shouted one more time. Each time it’s cheered, our nation has evolved one more year. Some may not be happy by what our nation has developed into. Some may be content. Some may not be satisfied. Some may be relieved. Some may not be patient. Some may be willing to wait. Some may not be pleased. Some may be thankful.

However different are our feelings, I am very sure, we’ll all cry if one day we woke up to find out that we’re no longer in control of our nation's destiny. And I’m sure all the complaining, protesting, arguing, or even flying flags upside-down, are done out of love for this country. Not all would agree on one method of expressing our loves, but all would express the same one love. If they don’t love, they will not care. If they do not care, they will not react. If they react, that would mean they love.

So, how would you shout Merdeka this year?

Quite a nice post. I never really celebrate merdeka in any special way. Glad that it's a holiday for me to take a break. :P

Very true, indeed.

Independence that's limited. Freedom of choice is made for you. That's Merdeka is all about in Malaysia :(
