i may not be all patriotic
i may not hang the national flag on house/car
i may not immediately stand up straight every time i hear the national anthem
i may sleep during the whole national parade
but dammit, i do love this God-forsaken country of ours! =D
i do remember the 5 "rukun negara"
i do know who our current leaders are, as well as the past
i do give a damn about politics
and i utterly despise people who posts negative crap about our country come the date of our independence. malaysians who thinks that malaysia is NOT a harmonious peaceful multi-racial country should leave malaysia, and see how life is on the other side of the border
u think our politicians bicker and fight like 5-year olds. dude, look at taiwan or korea's parliamentary meetings
sure, the system is flawed.
bribery and graft is rife.
and racism still exists here.
but i personally think we're moving in the right direction.
you complain and you bitch about every single thing you see on the news, but you forget all the help the government has given you. your education, your home, your loans. think about that, for a change.
so i say "HAPPY BIRTHDAY MALAYSIA!"
may you have more birthdays to come
and may we live in peace and harmony within your borders
"think not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country"
