Independence Day!

Today's is Malaysia's independence day. Or is it? Malaya got it's independence from the British on 31 August 1957 (picture shows the first Prime Minister of Malaya, Tunku Abdul Rahman proclaiming independence in 1957).

Sarawak got it's independence from the British on 22 July, 1963. Sabah (known as North Borneo then) gain independence from British Crown colony on 31 August 1963. Malaysia (joined by Sarawak, Sabah and Singapore) was formed on 16 September 1963. So fellow Malaysians, is 31 August our independence day?

Of Friends
Good friends are like that... You may not always see them, but you may trust that they are always there.

And remember...

Be kinder than necessary - - - Most everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Live simply,
Love generously,
Care deeply,
Speak kindly.......
