51st National Day Celebration

Today August 31, 2008 falls on Sunday and all Malaysians are on holiday to celebrate the 51st National Day. Many people are gathered early the morning here at the Dataran Merdeka to celebrate the great occasion.

The theme of this 51st National day is Perpaduan Teras Kejayaan (unity is the pillar of success), which began on Aug 16 and ends on Oct 18. The closing ceremony will be held in Sabah.

The mood of celebration for this 51st National Day has dismissed from previous years. There are too many quarrels among the politicians nowaday and this has caused many Malaysians difficult to forgive their arrogant remarks.The current political situation from Barison Nasional (BN) has disrupted many activities when the attention should be focused on other more important things.

The government has to bring back the true spirit of Merdeka as proclaimed by the first prime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman, our nation’s founding father.

On this 51st National day, I hope Peace and Progress will continue to prevail in Malaysia-my home country. Malaysians with different backgrounds should be more united and maintained harmonious relations among people that include Malay, Chinese, Indian, and people from Sabah and Sarawak.

    I think our politicians from UMNO have to learn how to behave. Generally they don’t care the feeling of others.
