We’re going into the Hari Malaysia weekend, celebrating 50 years of our country Malaysia. What is interesting is the number of events by friends, neighbourhoods, organisations and groups. But not much news of government-organised events.
What does this actually mean? It means we are Malaysians and we don’t need official events with tshirts, buntings and speeches for us to celebrate our country. It means we are Malaysians and enjoy it enough to do this ourselves.
So, let’s celebrate Malaysia with family and friends. Have a Hari Malaysia breakfast, lunch, barbecue or dinner or drinks. Celebrate Malaysia with love and laughter.
We are Malaysians. This is our country. It turns 50. And may it long continue growing to be the country we love. Only we can make that happen.
My Malaysia, my heart and home.

Facebook and Twitter are changing the way we mourn—rescuing America from a world where grief was largely silenced and creating, instead, a kind of public space for it.
