Alhamdulillah. It's gonna be our 57th Merdeka Day. This is the place we harbour our hopes, this is where our loves are blossomming.
So, any fresh hopes and missions to achieve for this tiny nation? If you ask me, I certainly have numerous wishes to make, indeed. And they are:
Moderation or wasatiah is definitely my cup of tea. Extremisms in any ways are not beneficial to anybody and it can only cause a huge downturn to the country.
Whoever that governs this nation has to be prudent with the taxpayers'funds. We did not elect you to screw up the money nor to swindle these hard-earned money for your cronies' benefits. Use them wisely and diligently.
To our athletes out there, compete like there will be no tomorrow in your pet event. Make us proud. Make us adore you like a role model. We don't have Superman in this real world and we need you to be that Superman to unite the nation.
As citizens of Malaysia, please stop the in fighting as it brings chaos to the nation. Set aside your political differences and maintain our 5 decades-long tolerance and live our life to the muhibbah spirit till the end of this nation.
To the political parties in Malaysia, don't enter the world of politic just because of power and money. Leave a legacy of administration to be highly spoken in years to come and absolutely not a condemnation for generations to come.
These are my humble wishes for this lovely country, some wishes from a commonner/layman like me. I ain't no saint or tok imam but I believe any walking man in the street deserves an equal opportunity to express himself about his nation.
I truly love this nation. Di sini lahirnya sebuah cinta....
Selamat Menyambut Hari Merdeka ke 57.
Your modest citizen,
