Malaysia's 52nd Independence Day

I realized that this year`s Independence Day is one that I felt nothing at all. *Ironic, how can you feel nothing? What I`m trying to say is the usual patriotism, unity and love your country euphoria is not there at the slightest bit. It’s funny really, how a person can remain so indifferent despite the radio and newspaper spend the past 2 weeks speaking nothing expect for unity and the spirit of Merdeka.

I believe cynicism has probably taken the best out of me. It wasn`t until I drove along the empty roads of Cyberjaya, a small appreciation of the country appear out of the deep corner of my thoughts. That also quickly disappears once I`m reminded of all other political issue that plagued the country since the last election. I grew quite tired of politics and the world 'government'. It`s ridiculous really. Communism sounds like a better way to go at times.

I really hope that all of us can disassociate the government and the country. Only then, I can truly wish, Happy Birthday Malaysia.

so true..so true..

This space is my simple escape from the harsh reality. Expect lots of random rants and whining apart from the daily reporting of things going I`m going through.

Take nothing seriously, leave comments, or just a simple hi. The world is getting smaller by the day, why not know each other now. Have fun ya all.
