Celebrating Independence Day
Today (31st of August), my country is celebrating Independence Day (Merdeka in Malay Language) and it is a public holiday. I was not born yet at that time. When i was young, i could see from TV about the parade and i had even participated one of the parade back in 1980. I was given Rm10.00, a set of uniform, a mini flag and a cap to walk in the parade. Back then Rm10.00 is a big money. If you would like to know the meaning of Merdeka please click on the photo above. For all Malaysians-Merdeka! By the way, I did not go for holidays except to meet up my inlaws later for gathering and have dinner with them.
