Independence Day, Aidilfitri, Malaysia Day - Where's the Fun?

Don't get me wrong, but it's the truth.. At least, for me..

Reflecting back to someone's quote on Facebook last night (I won't say who), I think it's true... People nowadays don't really celebrate Independence Day like they used to back then. Independence Day is the most crucial celebration here in our country. It is celebrated by EVERYONE in Malaysia, regardless of race and religion, and yet, very few wants to celebrate it with pride and joy? What's wrong??

Okay, out with the Independence Day, in with Aidilfitri... Somehow, I don't find celebrating this particular event as happening as before. Of course the Duit Raya tradition is still being kept alive, but now I don't find this interesting. Money will come and go, as always... And, there's no fun anymore because there's not much to talk about once you visit someone. Awkward silence will come and go.. And it's always like we are waiting for the other party to break the silence... I wonder...

Ah, I'm babbling again... Huhu.. Sorry for making you all read this rather depressing entry... Hihihi...

Anyway, to all Muslims out there, I wish Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir & Batin... And to all Malaysians, HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!! MERDEKA!

With all due respect,
