160909: Hari Malaysia

Today, we commemorate the formal formation Malaysia, bringing together the Federation of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore as one nation.

Although not a public holiday, nevertheless there’s plenty of action going around all over the nation today, including:

1. The “Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia” initiative, conceived by lawyer Haris M. Ibrahim to be launched today at the Rumah Anak Bangsa Malaysia, No. 66, Lorong Setiabistari 1, Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur.

2. There is also a similar event up North organised by blogger Lucia Lai at Nasi Kandar Pelita Restaurant, Jalan Macalister, Penang (near the UMNO building) tonight at 7.30 p.m.

3. Earlier this past week, the KL and Chinese Assembly Hall (KLCAH) together with Civil Rights and Packet One Network jointly organised a “1 Malaysia, 15 Films” or simply known as “15Malaysia” screening of 15 short films produced by 15 Malaysian film makers on local socio-political issues.

4. There is also a “Fast for the Nation” initiative by Sivin Kit to unite Malaysians to fast and pray in solidarity for unity and peace.

Let’s not dwell much on recent divisive actions being carried out by self serving people in the name of race, religion and what not, rather CELEBRATE with all Malaysians of goodwill the re-birth of Malaysia.

Happy Birthday Malaysia!
