Jalur Gemilang

I dont want to be among the late ones wishing my beloved country, Happy Birthday.

This year's Merdeka is very special because it's our 50th year. But what's far more important than reaching 50 is, where have we taken the country for the last 50 years? If this sounds too large, than ask ourselves where have we taken ourselves ever since we breathe on this independent soil.

Merdeka means very much bigger than being in the crowd cheering for the fireworks, or being in the crowd watching floats and marching bands, or even ambushing the malls promoting merdeka sale(?).

Look around, or maybe just look inside us.
