Merdeka means freedom in our national language, Bahasa Malaysia or also known as Malay. Today marks 51 years since Malaysia gained it's independence from the British. Petronas apart from being known as one of the biggest oil and gas company in the world, is also known for their award winning advertisement (commercial). The above is their advertisement for Merdeka 2008. It is in Malay but with an English sub-title. The message is very strong (as always!) and I feel that I need to share it with my readers. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
Being away from home is not an excuse not to celebrate it. We are having a barbeque session later today and fret not, picture will follow soon. ;)
To all Malaysian out there where ever you are, Selamat Hari Merdeka!
