Is it just me, or is there like no Merdeka feeling this year? Sure, there are a few flags here and there, but it feels to me like Malaysia is not really celebrating our 51st birthday this year. Sigh. What a dissapointement. I think the government is so concerned about Permatang Pauh that our nations 51st birthday has lost its importance. You read the papers today all you read about is Anwar this, Saiful this, Permatang pauh that. Such a sad state of events for Malaysia.
Having said that, I am also very disappointed with all those bloggers who are running the Malaysian flag upside down. No matter how bad things may seem in this nation, there is no excuse for defaming our flag. We live in peace! There are no wars! We have no famine! Sure we have the crazy mat rempits riding around everywhere, but they are so mild compared to the armed militia in some African or Asian countries. I am ashamed at those people who fly the colors of our nation upside down.
