Malaysia dan agama "rasmi" nya.

Time passes real fast. Before you know it, Malaysia is already 51. Selamat Hari Kemerdekaan btw.Seems just like the other day Bandar Hilir was flooded, and the whole country was really enthusiastic about Merdeka. Waiting at Bandar Hilir the day before, was just the whole hype really. They had seen Tanah Melayu at its worst, during its time. What more can be worse when a foreigner, those who are not born and bred are infringing the locals' rights?

But today, today, kids flood every possible inch of celebrating events. Only because it's a reason to party. To let some steams out. Nothing really nationalistic or patriotic in tact. Pure fun. Pure booze. Pure dirty dancing. Tell me, who amongst these darah muda crowds- the ones who went out partying last night, to "count down" the seconds actually want to buy a pretty Jalur Gemilang and stick it on the roof of their cars? Yes, the ones that the parents bought for their 18th birthday.

Of course you can't really compare time side by side, because it's just different. Time grows like people do. Natural selection. But you know, it's just sad to see unnecessary ideologies growing, and patriotism fading.

It felt like yesterday wishing my friend in Dungun Selamat berpuasa a year ago. And here I am, wishing her a year later. And sadly, time changes its course. Natures have been changed. Adaptations are forced.

Selamat menyambut Ramadhan Al-Mubarak.

A year has past, have you (I) changed much than a year ago? Have we catch that glimpse of faith you're expecting?

Happy Puasa sounds odd.. So, here goes. Good Luck on your fasting. May you be closer to Your Creator this holy month and reflect on your life. And may He grace your penance with lot of patience and tolerance and a good life..

I guess that was the last party before enduring the first week of Ramadan really. After that, it will be back to the same old booze, party and dirty dancing!
