Merdeka...Merdeka...Merdeka!!!!


Tanggal 31... bulan 8... lima puluh tujuh.....

Those are some of the lyrics from a popular Merdeka song by the late Sudirman... A very old song indeed but full of meanings. Yes..it is part of the year again... where we Malaysian celebrate our independent day. This year is the 51st years of independent for Malaysia. For a country I think that age can be considered as old already... but I think we are still young and there are lots of things that we should learn. Below is this year Merdeka Advertisment from Petronas. Petronas has been very creative in creating great ads not only for Merdeka, but for most of Malaysian festivalsyeah...like Hari Raya, Chinese New Year, Deepavali ect.. ect.. huhu.. so dear readers have a look on the video first ok....

The moral of the video huhuhu you can read it at the end of the vid right. So there is no need for me to explain it.

This couple of years Malaysia have been facing rough situation politically and economically. Lots of unwanted things happens... With the oil price being unstable (although we are oil producing country), not enough of food supply and the price of food keep booming up... political rivalry of the BIG people of the nation... Seriously, I just want to be a common citizen of the nation living peacefully and happily but theses kind of tribulation we the RAKYAT a.k.a citizen have to face making it hard for me to achieve that kind of life. I miss all the good old times where life have been great for the people. Everything were great during that time. Never have to thinks of such problems.

Ok.. lets return to this year Merdeka. This year the logo is the one on the top of this entry... This year the theme is "Perpaduan Teras Kejayaan" (Unity is the Core of Succes). What a brilliant theme indeed. But the song is still the same. Just like the old one, marching like songs... I think some time there is a need for them to change the genre... the singer is Roy.. he been singing a lot of patriotic songs in Malaysia... kind a boring for me if most of the time the same singer sing the song... Make it more spicy...I would like to suggest. Make a different ...make it appealing to the modern crowd. Change the singer, change the genre. We have lots of talents, composers, song writers, singers... I think most of them are willing to do it for free if it for the nation Photobucket. For example the song Here In My Home....by Malaysian artists (you can watch it at the side colum)... Fresh, New, Vibrant, Appealing, Modern, Fun.... that is how a Merdeka song should be like... of course not in English.. in Malay lah kan... But that is only my opinion ok hahhha
