This weekend is our 51st Merdeka (independence). In many ways we haven’t felt like celebrating, esp with what’s been happening lately (jelak betul!).
Anyway, as always we do our own quiet little celebration 🙂 Since the lantern festival is about, we got the kids some glass paper lanterns (none of those REALLLLLLLY annoying plastic jobs with music and flashing lights, EEEEEEEEEE!!!!) and those tiny candles. We plan to have a mini celebration on sunday with the lanterns, some makan (hopefully can get the”muhibbah” spread). The state flags (lil ones) are hanging up in the kids playroom (which Im trying to clean up AGAIN lol it never ends) on the shelves there. We have our posters of the different states and the boys want us to plan road trips over the years to visit all over malaysia. And why not, hubby and I say!? 🙂
anyway, my dear fellow Malaysians, HAPPY MERDEKA or SELAMAT MENYAMBUT HARI KEMERDEKAAN!
We are all Malaysians, whatever colour/background/heritage 🙂
