Happy 55 years merdeka Malaysia. If you're looking for Merdeka day coins, I don't think they will release it. First time in history, the merdeka day logo, theme and song has been heavily criticize by everyone including me. Information Ministry theme, "55 years of independence promises fulfilled" are not suitable for Merdeka celebration. Their logo, the worst logo ever in our history of independence has been withdrawn by the ministry. They said it is not an official logo but that logo has been circulating among Malaysia Government websites for quite some time. Some people said their merdeka song for this year a copycat from a church song. The government have been trying to bring people to Merdeka day parade, some of you might have received a sms asking you to come to Dataran Merdeka for the Merdeka Parade. Today, 13,000 people came to Merdeka Parade at Dataran Merdeka.
Everytime Merdeka day celebration, most of you might have seen this iconic picture. Image of Tunku Abdul Rahman raising his hand to proclaim the nation’s independence at the stadium, declaring independence from the British at Stadium Merdeka on 31 August 1957. Do you know who took this picture? The picture is an artwork of Mr. Ng Weng Hong, Information Department of Malaysia photographer.
What is 55 years Merdeka mean for you? Joining a parade, waiving a Malaysia flag and shouting Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka! Is that what really matter? Today, we have seen Malaysian celebrate their Merdeka day in two separate way because of politic. Merdeka should not divide us but should bring us together with a high spirit of Patriotism and honouring Malaysia freedom fighter who have make it easy for us. In the world of technology, Malaysian failed to celebrate with a true spirit of Merdeka. We maybe are Merdeka physically but some of us are still not free from colonization; spirituality and mentality. Patriotism level among Malaysian has been going down everyday. We easily condemning any Malaysia product because we are not satisfied with current government, we don't think about the truth before we are talking like a mad men. Some of us even like to give a stupid lie to our fellow Malaysian, that make me think, do they have Low Patriotism or Low IQ? Ironing and bleaching Malaysia banknotes are not a way to celebrate Merdeka day.
I wish one day our politician can stand together in the name of Merdeka celebration, put aside their political opinion and celebrate Merdeka as Malaysian. A wish that I don't think can be realize with the current way both side of political party are doing. We are free from British colonization but we are still control by politic, spiritually. The way we think about something depends on what political party that we support. Some of us just follow without even think about the cause and reason why do we support something in the first place.
Merdeka celebration is just a parade without spirit of patriotism in most Malaysian. Only the political spirit matters for 55 years of Merdeka. Happy 55 years Merdeka Malaysia!
Here are some faces of Malaysian, celebrating 55 Merdeka:
