Happy Merdeka Day!


Happy Merdeka Day folks!

Malaysia celebrates 50 years of independence today. We've come a long way, haven't we? What are you doing?

Enjoy the long weekend, sleep in, watch the National Day parade, eat out, balik kampung, cause a traffic jam (or two. Or three. Or more!), go shopping (try not to curse if you can't get a parking space or get put off with the seas of people there), see fireworks or whatever celebration it seems that shopping malls have lined up in conjunction with this day. It ain't just another public holiday.

Oh yeah, and are you yellow today?

I wore yellow today.

Happy Merdeka from the semi-Malaysian. :)

rinnah said...

narrowband: Sure, anything yellow counts! Hehe.

giddy tiger said...

Happy Merdeka day, Rinnah!

may said...

ooooh, am I too late? Merry Merdeka!

rinnah said...

zewt: Yep... hardly any yellow to be seen. Furthermore, despite the fact that I wore yellow on Merdeka Day is likely to garner any attention at all... *sigh*

**********
chen: A belated Happy Merdeka and a current Happy Birthday to you!

We need more yellow supporters la...

**********
giddy tiger: Oh well, one less person in yellow wouldn't have made that much of a difference because no one was in yellow! LOL!

I've given up on watching the parade since I was about nine, I think.

may: Better late than never, they say! Merry Merdeka to you too!
