Malaysia Celebrates 50 Years of Independence (“Merdeka, Merdeka, Merdeka”)

It is 31 August 2007, Malaysia celebrate her 5oth Year of Independence.

In brief here is the history.

The independence of Malaysia is different from much of the independence of other countries. What makes it so different? It is a peaceful independence achieved by holding talks with the British. No other country has ever done that before Malaysia. Additionally, the Malaysian independence was realised by three people with different culture and religion. It is amazing how independence was gained that way.

After independence in 1957, Kuala Lumpur was the capital of the Federation of Malaya and continued to be the capital of the renamed Federation of Malaysia in 1963. For the occasion of independence, A large stadium, Stadium Merdeka (Independence Stadium), was built, where Malaysia’s first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, declared Malaya’s independence in front of a massive crowd. On the glorious day of 31 August 1957, Allahyarham Tunku Abdul Rahman proudly declared the independence of Malaya (now Malaysia) by shouting out “Merdeka” seven times at the Merdeka Stadium.

Since that day onwards, the people of Malaysia promised to renew the political, economical and social structure in order to reduce the gap among the society. It is no easy job as there are many challenges ahead.

Therefore, we, as the younger generation and citizens of Malaysia, must protect our country from any harmful sources. We should work hard together to gain superiority and not to be left behind. Though education plays an important role, but it will only be successful the people are willing to contribute and sacrifice. The quality of independence is indirectly proportional to the action taken by its people to maintain and strenghten it.

Malaysia already 50…I am at 41…so let’s progress further for more betterment of the country Malaysia and also for ourselves.

In my language, Bahasa Malaysia, …”Selamat Hari Merdeka Malaysia …… Keranamu Malaysia …”

By taking care of yourself and trying to do what makes you feel better; you are allowing yourself the opportunity to really begin to heal you heart.

Although you are feeling bad there is one very important thing you must remember not to neglect or forget. It’s the one thing that will guarantee your feeling better…”Don’t forget to take care of yourself.”

Indulge yourself. You are going through a tough time right now so take extra care in being easy on yourself. Treat yourself to all of the little niceties that will make YOU feel better.

New hair-cut, color, make-up, facial, manicure or massage. Buy yourself something you’ve been wanting. Go and do something you enjoy. Do anything that makes you feel great about yourself. Do anything that you love doing which you’ve been putting off.

Join a gym, if you can’t afford it, go for a walk and commune with nature. Go on a vacation or go out with your friends again. Occupy yourself with positive activities and stay focused on things that make you happy.

If someone you love was going through the same thing, how would you treat them? Well, that someone you “should” love is yourself. Spoil and pamper yourself just as you would someone you love.

This is the time to be nicer to yourself than you’ve ever been before… You’re worth it!

There is a saying, “With every door that closes another door opens.” Begin to believe in a better life. Change isn’t always easy but…with change comes growth.

The door that is opening for you is to a new life. As you begin to accept that your relationship is over…you can begin to look forward instead of living in the past.

As you start to focus more and more on moving on…make sure you are moving on to the life you want. As you know; the choices we make determine how we live our lives.

Take this time and use it to your advantage. As difficult as it has been to go through, I’m sure you don’t want to make the same mistakes again.

Use this as an opportunity to create the life you want. Get beyond your fears and you will open yourself up to living a better life!
