Merdeka spirit - what went wrong?



Merdeka!Merdeka!Merdeka! ...It has been like 6 years that I have not been celebrating Merdeka. The simple reason is that I was not in Malaysia for that period.
My memories of Merdeka? Lots of it... I remember that I used to practice so hard with my clarinet and marching from 5pm till 7pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday from the beginning of August.In the morning of the National day, we woke up as early as 5am and prepared ourselves before we left for the Padang Besar Ipoh and then when time comes, we would march proudly and played our beautiful "Perajurit Song" with much enthusiasm for 8 to 9km... At that moment, I could really felt the Merdeka spirit and embraced it especially when I passed by the Sultan (hahaha)



What happen after 6 years? Have I changed or Malaysia have changed?
Today is the 28th of August ... Back then , I would have seen Malaysian flags everywhere. (shophouses, houses and vehicles ) Now,I can only see a few pathetic flags despite Merdeka is just 3 days away.
Even I have not gone into the Merdeka celebratory mood despite being in Malaysia.
I really love my country, MALAYSIA. Yes, I do and always will.

I don't want to be the ones that are complaining about our government and various stuff and end with the statement " thus,I couldn't find the Merdeka Spirit" .I believe in initiative. ^_^ Thus , from today onwards I will play Merdeka songs in the room, hang Malaysian flags, make my own flag (^_^) , watch merdeka advertisement and shows, watch the morning parade and fireworks to get the Merdeka spirit back . Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!
