Are you people misinformed? Have you forgotten what was taught in Sejarah? Why kept saying "Happy <insert your year here> Birthday, Malaysia" over and over again on independence day? I've been hearing this for years now. Newscasters are saying it. TV hosts are saying it. Even ministers are saying it. Why the government are not saying anything to correct it?
I'm gonna write about this to newspaper real soon.
Malaya (Malaysia, then) gained its independence back in 1957, on the 31st of August. "Malaysia" was not established until 1963, on the 16th of September! Come on, Malaysian! For whatever sake. Bangun!
You all really need to be properly informed. Sheesh.
Anyway, Happy 52nd Independence Day, Malaysia. Merdeka!
