Malaysia celebrates her historic 'Merdeka' on 31 August 2007 at the Dataran Merdeka in KL. It is her 50th year of independence which for a nation she has matured to tackle the woes that her people are trying to fight for a foothold on each other realm - economic, wealth, politics, religion...along the way sidestepped into corruption, cronyism, bending rules and laws, suppression of free speech and goblok people/bloggers and slogans carrying no bite in its words. So this merdeka must carry the torch of definite changes in our lives, the country's focus and the leaders we elect to represent us. We can't be called 'goblok' by a minister because we dont agree what the government says or intends to do. The country needs another TUNKU ABDUL RAHMAN AL HAj to lead the country out of its communal in box breeding - each leader trying to curry for his race forgetting the noble role of unifying for fairness to all for Malaysia's progress in the eyes of the world.
