HOORAY! Being a Malaysian, I always look forward to celebrate our country Independence or National Day. Our Government has gazetted this public holiday in order for all Malaysian to enjoy and celebrate this event annually. You can see the display of the nation's flag at the houses, office premises, shopping complexes or even public & private transports.
Malaysia will be celebrating its 52nd National Day on 31 August 2009. In short, we are celebrating the formation of Malaysia.
Every year, a brand new theme and logo were made to commemorate with the celebration. This year theme is "1Malaysia, Rakyat Didahulukan, Pencapaian Diutamakan ( 1Malaysia: People First. Performance Now). The main attraction during this event are grand military parade and the fly-past by the Malaysian Air Force
This year's Merdeka Day celebration was earlier scheduled at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil has been changed to Parliament Square in Kuala Lumpur due to Influenza A(H1N1) pandemic and in deference of the holy month of Ramadan.
HAPPY MERDEKA DAY AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
(In view of the long holidays, I will be away from my blog but STAY TUNE FOR MORE WHEN I RETURN!!!)
