Keeping the Merdeka Spirit Alive

This Sunday is.................................................

MERDEKA DAY!!




but this coming Monday is...................................

HOLIDAY!!!

Its just so good to be in Malaysia where if holidays falls on weekends, we are given another day off as a replacement.

Where in the world practice such things!!

Now, whenever merdeka is around the corner, I'd always love to see how people show their Malaysian Spirit.




umm sorry wrong picture...




Sadly, this year around, our 51st Merdeka Day has not been shown alot of attention. (Maybe this could be due to over-spending in our 50th Merdeka Day)



Ok lets face it!! When I say attention, I don't mean the usual boring parade.



I meant the MALAYSIAN WAY OF SHOWING OUR MERDEKA SPIRIT!!

Like umm....

Turning your whole car into a Malaysian Flag.



Make the longest flag with bottles.



Make a Malaysian Flag out of Lego's.



Try to outbeat in making the Malaysia's longest flag that stretches a mile longer by using everyone's "Bergotong-royong" hand spirit.





or wearing a Malaysian Flag Shirt and smashing a "Kompang" at least!!



So, yesterday, without the presence of anyone displaying a Malaysian flag on their car at the very least,



I saw what could at least show that there are still people out there who still does give a damn about Merdeka Day.

Driving past Pulau Tikus, I saw this.....




HAVE YOU SEEN HIM!!HAVE YOU SEEN HIM!!



THE ONE ON THE BICYCLE WITH MALAYSIAN FLAG USED AS A ROOF RIDING AROUND THERE WITH PRIDE!!




Okay, I know there are a whole lot of ways to show your Merdeka Spirit but using the Malaysian Flag to shade yourself from the sun and rain is not actually the nicest way to show respect to a flag but still....

At least its still great to know someone is keeping the Merdeka Spirit Alive the MALAYSIAN WAY!!

HAPPY 51st MERDEKA EVERYONE!!
