The Night Before

Today is the eve of Malaysia's 51st Independence Day. I am having a lot of mixed feelings today. For one moment, I am happy. For another, I am sad. What is to become of Malaysia? I hope for the best. Will 'the best' be soon?

Meanwhile, let us put our egos aside, and think, what have we done for our Chinese friend, our Iban colleague, our Malay neighbour? Did we treat them right today? What about that Indian lady who use to ride the same bus as you? Have you ever given up your seat to her?

I went to watch kids play at a public pool today. Watching them play makes me happy. And that was when I started reflecting on myself, as an individual, as an Indian, as someone's daughter, as a young lady, and most of all, as a Malaysian.

Sharlinie and Asmawi, I hope you are in a better place. Lord, protect them.

And in case you feel like singing along to Perpaduan Teras Kejayaan (theme song for this year's Independence Day), download here:

Perpaduan Teras Kejayaan

Hmm, I still prefer Keranamu!
