Happy Birthday Malaysia !!!

Filed under: Events, History, Holiday, Miscellaneous — J Martin @ 12:00 am

It’s 16th September.

Malaysia was born on 16th September … not 31th August. The 31th August is merely the independence day of Malaya Federation … NOT Malaysia. Malaysia as a unified state did not exist until 1963 …

People should get the fact right …

A little touch on history – 31st August (Malaysia’s Independent Day)

Filed under: History — J Martin @ 11:58 pm

Yesterday (31st August) was Malaysia’s Independent Day, as they celebrated it. 

But some don’t agree. 31st August is Peninsular Malaysia’s Independent Day, not the whole Malaysia. Malaysia is a combination of Peninsular Malaysia and Borneo (Sabah and Sarawak), which was formed on 16th September 1963.

So, is it wrong not to celebrate the 31st August?

I think it’s time for Malaysians to get the fact right … and it’ll be helpful if the gov (and media) do something about it …
