Happy Birthday Malaysia

Federation of Malaya celebrated their independence on 31st August 1957. Incidentally, the inclusion of North Borneo in to the expanded Malaysia was supposed to have taken place on 1st June 1963, but then it was postponed to 31st Aug 1963, to co-incide with the 6th Merdeka of Malaya. History also has it that it was further postponed to enable United Nations time to conduct a referendum regarding their participation into an expanded Malaysia coupled with objections from Indonesia and Philippines added to the delay.

But Malaysia would not be denied. We, the Peninsular together with our Borneo brothers and sisters created history on 16th September 1963... Malaysia was born. Hence, today, we celebrate 45 years of union and of nationhood. We are Malaysians... lets celebrate our union as a Nation. Happy Malaysia Day.

Hihihihi Clef n Kev .. here I am .. sooooo busy this morning .. very mung chung cos my car would not start .. battery dead as a dodo (just 1 yr old). Luckily my son just off to work so managed to jump-start for me. Happy Malaysia Day .. esp to our brethren in Sabah n Sarawak. Will it be a happy day for us tho? I mean happy in the sense that a "change" is forthcoming. The no.1 & 2 so confident that it will not happen .. shucks .. what a depressing thought .. I was so looking forward to finally sending them packing! Have a good day y'all! I keep hearing Clef saying "cannot sleep last nite" .. curi ayam ah?
