merdeka

I’m not going to work today for a reason you can guess, yes, I’m sick. I will try my best to stay healthy and I hate to see workload on the table which can easily cause me severe headache. But sometimes I have to just agree with others that I simply need a rest. I mean authentic rest.

Ok. Fine, I’m off today. I went to the clinic to get some prescription from the same doctor and drove back home. She worried about me. Sorry for didn’t let you know earlier as I thought it wasn’t serious. In fact, it really wasn’t serious. Despite I was sick, I didn’t want you to worry. Please accept my apology.

What I want to talk about here is about the Merdeka Day celebration (Merdeka Day is Independent Day which we celebrate every 31st of August). We pompously brag about our multiracial country without any hesitate. Yes, I’d agree with you that it is something other country could not afford.

But do you think that we as a multiracial country really amalgamated?

I seriously doubt.

There is still boundary that keeps us apart. In fact, I don’t see any good effort from the politicians that lead to our unity. Don’t you think so?

Instead of harmonize us all, they prefer to talk about themselves seeking no others but their very important position, doesn’t matter in the party or in the country. I know it is weird but truth is bitter most of the time.

Yesterday, my office went ballistic with the celebration. They stick the flags in the whole office doesn’t matter it looks good or not, simply stick them everywhere. I suppose it was an order from the director. What for? Showing the patriotism in ourselves? Do you really think by sticking the flags everywhere show how much you concern about the country more than just a plain celebration?

Put the flag on your car fully covered the whole car show how much you love Malaysia? Wear the t-shirt with a flag on it and “I love Malaysia!” written below the flag really prove that you love this country vastly? Give me a break, please.

Now, our office look likes rubbish and seriously I feel like I’m working in the rubbish bin. Not in the office anymore.

Office should provide a very cozy environment so that we can work comfortably with a clear mind. Not like this, messy and ugly.

Honestly, I don’t agree with this idea.

  1. get well soon, you. and about not agreeing with jalur gemilang merata alam, i'm with you. it's not the right way to show your love. i mean later on when the month's over, you'll see jalur gemilangs everywhere like being stepped on or ended up in the rubbish, which is a sad thing to watch. heh. talking about love, no?

    anyway, thanks so much for the feed back, i've already responded to it. will work on nina and ig afterwards. =)

  6. I can tell you are fine now,judging from the way we wrote in your latest post, cos your mind was doing all right to enable you to write so well.......

    I believe you and i (even we are different in many ways) really love to be called brothers of Malaysia, but sometimes it is the fault of our stupid politicians that drift us apart....

    Seriosly, i dont see why we cant be really united,if we were to look beyond race,color,religion and gender. Why cant we call this place "ketuanan bersama". together we make this country stand tall, together we fight our common enemies.... why cant we do it, we can but those stupid politicians telling us we cant...sigh

    I love my malay,indian and the rest friends,,,,,,,,

    let us be color blind, then only we can shine.

    luv ya,, and have a great weekend bro

  10. terasa kurang bahang sambutan kemerdekaan tahun ini di sini. tak tau kenapa. mungkin sebab hujan lebat selalu turun? adakah pertindihan dengan bulan puasa? sebab takde bonus? tak tahu kenapa? Haha...

    yang pasti, semoga cepat sembuh ya...

  14. ladyviral - hehe i'm getting better! :) it has been raining for the whole week and it's so cold over here :) but cold is always better than hot right? at least you can use the reason to cuddle someone :P

    long weekend to you too :)

    eugene - i get good ideas and good words when i'm depress and angry. weird but true :) i'm still sick but getting better now. hope you didn't forget to pray for me :P

    agree with you politicians should find a way to unite us instead of bias to certain races. sorry to say, if we can be united, what's the point of us bragging about multiracial country?

    i love all my friends without care of the races, religions and skin colors too. in fact, i have more chinese friends than malay. they accept me as who am i and no bias at all.

    thanks for the lovely comment eugene :)

  29. stop throw rubbish everywhere they like is difficult enough for Malaysia.that the basic thing to show your love for Malaysia..rather than talking about it..

    ReplyDelete
  30. fndrocka - agree with you. i don't understand why Malaysian are so irresponsible and unhygienic. not only throwing rubbish everywhere, but also mess up public toilet. weird thing is usually they don't that at home.
