EVERYWHERE I LOOK, I SEE MALAYSIA
ประเทศมาเลเซีย สันต์วันเกิดนะครับ







Our neighbor Malaysia is celebrating their 50th Year of Independence from the British monarch. Half a century of glorious nationhood and I shout with my Malaysian brothers "MERDEKA!"

From Nasi Lemak, my favorite food to The Petronas, my favorite architectural wonder. From Teh tarik, my favorite after-clubbing drink to the beaches of Perhentian, Langkawi and Redang -- my favorite beaches! Thank you for sharing it with us.

I gotta admit...I'm a little jealous that the best of Asia is in one country --Malaya, China, India -- you guys showed us that a multi-cultural, multi-racial and multi-belief society is possible.

From Vietnam to the Philippines, from Indonesia to Burma, from Brunei to Cambodia and Laos, from your neighbors to the South; Singapore to your loving neighbors to the north; THAILAND...our hats are off to you.


Malaysia is a special place on Earth.

Thank you so much for the sweet post.

It warms my heart to see that other people who are non-Malaysians rejoice with us together on our 50 years of independence! :)

I love how they keep progressing despite the threat of disunification. They are doing a good job keeping 3 races live together. Malaysia boleh! Really. I salute you all!
