It's Independence Day! 

Without Malaya and Sabah achieving independence 55 years ago, MALAYSIA (the joint-force of 3 independent countries – Malaya, Sabah & Sarawak) may not have even been born.

Let's wave our flag – the Jalur Gemilang – proudly with other Malaysians and yell "MERDEKA!!!" 



I may not have done anything to usher in Merdeka due to workload but the blazing love for my country still ignites on this historical, national day.


This year, I was chilling in my house on the highest floor shouting MERDEKA 7 times while watching blasting fireworks illuminating the sky simultaneously in 13 different spots. 

Lucky for me, my penthouse has a gorgeous aerial view of the suburbs, parts of the city & everything!


Check out Google's doodle today!

It's our national flower – the hibiscus – as a logo :D


As the year passes, I have begun to learn more and more about my country every day.

One of my favorite things to do this year has most definitely been playing host to a slew of Aussie friends of mine who chose Malaysia as a holiday destination.  So proud! 


My lunch : Nasi Tomato & Ayam Masak Merah (Malay),

Tumeric Cabbage & Papadam (Indian), Steamed Garlic Pumpkin (Chinese) 


This #merdeka55 , I am thankful for the abundant & culturally diverse food that come in abundance here in Malaysia. 

I love my country; tanah tumpah darahku!
