Children of the Midnight Flag

All over the world, we are all children of the midnight flag. Like many other countries under the colonial banner, Malaysia gained its independence decades ago. Today at the stroke of midnight the flag will be raised and the anthem will echo in history once again for the 48th time, and the shouts of 'Merdeka' will fill the Malaysian skies. I would like to take this opportunity to remember these two great leaders who truly signify who Malaysians are and should be:

[-] Tunku Abdul Rahman declaring independence at the Merdeka Stadium on the 31st August 1957

[-] Malaysia's ex-PM, Tun Dr. Mahathir , the father of modern Malaysia and one of the best ever leader in modern day Asia.

[-] I wish all Malaysians:

' Selamat Hari Merdeka '
' Happy Independence Day Malaysia '
[+] Visi has a good post on Merdeka Day here.
[+] Maran has a superb snap of the KL cityscape with all the fireworks here.
