Why do i like my country..
..because i 'own' this country....you hafta like what u own , if u dont like what you own u can choose to disown or create havoc or throw rubbish everywhere et cetera et cetera. Of course we are not perfect, somehow or rather we are 'bound' into some unsensible rules or constitutions or policies or face/heard d higher level 'power-crazy-conducts'... If we like to change that, we can choose to be a politicians or a powerful rich businessman, reporters or even a blogger whereby u can at least be 'heard'...somewhere, somehow.. If we keep comparing our country with the most advance, well-managed, 'clean', rich countries without doing anything about it then we hafta stop complaining. Creating a better society is basically vital .. as m sure most of us would like to live in harmony and peace... without it people will hafta stop having kids...
So, in conjunction of our 50th independence,, i hope and pray that we will all continue to make this country a better place to live. I am sure everyone of us are already feeling restless of a sudden changes in our society, every single day in the news..murder cases, accidents..news tht makes your heart thumped, frustrations and anger. Whether u like it or not, our future generations are already 'absorbing' these untoward manias. And they asked us questions that we fail to answer..so instead of just saying to them..study hard/smart, be a good person, ..all the basics... we might in future tell them..please dont kill people, please dont become a drug addict, please dont bribe or take bribe, please dont be a bully, please dont own a motorbike..as very likely u become a mat/minah rempit... Seriously..this is what m worried of..more than our football team sucks or son-in-law becomes a politicians or celebrities marriages/divorce or who crossed which kutub/sea/moon. Shld i rest my case..?.....
..also...last weekend..after the KL PAC thingy..to kill time..dono where to go... We actually went to the TUGU NEGARA... Surprise!!!...i think da last time i was there was errr....errr... well that shows how long lah..i think standard 1 kot.. i dont even remember who brought me there..I dont think twas my parents..or is it my teacher..it could b my parents..arghhhh hehe..whateverlah. One thing for sure I brought my kids there..although they dont know what it is really all about. But when we were lookin at the Tugu..suddenly there was a feeling of 'terharu', my sense of patriotisme rose.. reminiscing how difficult it was more than 50 years ago to fight for independence, to strategies to own back our country at least..politically. Many people died for it or against it. Reminds me of my father's story on how cruel the Japanese were, he n family has to run away deep inside the jungle.. and to get rice was a real risk. Our true men hafta fight with the Japs, the communist and even with our own betrayed men. Not many of us appreciate this freedom,, instead they question.. everythinglah they question... like i said..theres no perfect country...
The monument was erected in memory of fallen heroes who gave their lives during World War II and the Emergency (1948-60).
Inspired by American sculptor Felix de Weldon, this 15.54m monument comprises seven bronze figures.
The national flag is held aloft by one of the figures. Each of the bronze figures symbolises a different quality, namely leadership, suffering, unity, vigilance, strength, courage, and sacrifice.
... after that we brought the children to the playground at the lake garden,..wah the place has improved..newer n interesting playground
and oh btw
MAY DA FORCE B WITH YOU ;-)
