National Day:Independence Day(31 Aug) vs Malaysia Day (16 Sept)

 

 This month is widely known among Malaysian as "Bulan Kemerdekaan".This  is because national day  which falls on the 31st august.As far as i concerned, early this month every year we could see all the cars in the road were decorated with Malaysia Car Flag but today is 3rd August 2010 & it is not like previous years no Malaysia Car Flag or Malaysia Flag around the corner.

According to Wikipedia Source:
Hari Merdeka (Independence Day) is a national day of Malaysia commemorating the independence of the Federation of Malaya from British colonial rule, celebrated on August 31. In a wider context, it is to celebrate the formation of Malaysia.

Malaysia Day is held on September 16 every year to commemorate the establishment of the Malaysian federation on the same date in 1963. It marked the joining together of Malaya, North Borneo, Sarawak, and Singapore to form Malaysia. The formation of the new federation was planned to occur on June 1, 1963, but was later postponed to August 31, 1963, in order to coincide with the sixth Hari Merdeka.

1 Malaysia, Rakyat Didahulukan, Pencapaian Diutamakan
(1 Malaysia, People First, Performance Now).This is the theme for year 2009 Independence Day and since then we always heard about 1Malaysia Concept introduced by the Government.& every day we would listen to 1Malaysia Song ,see the Billboard of 1Malaysia Posters every corner of the road & watch it on TV..and it all about 1Malaysia.

 On the other hand,the government was introduced Malaysia Day.Beginning year 2010, September 16 is a federal public holiday.That make we have to celebrate  two  National Day. Independence Day (31 Aug) vs Malaysia Day (16 Sept).which one is your choice.
 The introduction of Malaysia Day is  seems as good news for East Malaysian at large since it was related much to them but their counterpart at West Malaysia seems confusing ..

The question is why we must have 2 National Day?..

 Whatever the responds is it is a new beginning towards 1Malaysia Concept..& it is a wise decision by government to declared 16 Sept as Malaysia Day..since an Independence Day (31 August) is celebrate the Formation of MALAYA & Malaysia Day (16 Sept) is celebrate establishment of the Malaysian federation.(Malaya,Sabah,Sarawak & Singapore )

Last but not least,whether you have the Malaysia Car Flag on your car is not important..the most important things is Why we should have a Malaysia Day..since the Malaysia in not belong West Malaysia only..
