It is quite amusing to me that the most popular topic in social media today is “oil price hike“. Almost every Whatsapp group that I am part of talks about the RON97 gasoline MYR0.07 price increase! The ups and downs of fuel prices in Malaysia should not surprise us because many elements contribute to the volatility, not only in my home country but also globally. In short, the upward trend is not so surprising because of the geopolitical events around us.
Part 3: Malaysia is one of the most respected Muslim countries in The World and here is why!
I have traveled to some places including most of the South East Asian countries and the Far Eastern too. There’s no doubt that these countries have a lot in common with Malaysia especially if we talk about the Nusantara countries like Indonesia, Brunei, Southern Thailand, and Singapore. Even if we visit nations like Cambodia, Myanmar, the Philippines, and Timor Leste, there are still some similarities.
This is ‘The Chronological of Events’ from 1992 to 2001 (and extended). This is a classic case of “From Hero to Zero“, and later it turned out to be “From Zero to Hero” again after the miraculous General Election results in May 2018.
So, please go figure and connect the dots!
Note: These facts were painstakingly collected and researched from various reputable news sites around the globe (see references at the bottom of this article). ENJOY!
Part 2: Sepak Takraw is a unique sport from Malaysia and we are the best in the World!
According to some historical documents, Malaysia is the sole inventor of “Sepak Takraw” which was originally called Sepak Raga.
However, Thailand, being the mightiest Kingdom in the South East Asian region at that time competed with the Malacca Kingdom by declining to admit that Sepak Takraw was originated from Malaysia. The Thais said that Sepak Takraw was originated from Thailand, and the game should be called Takraw instead!
I haven’t made any Official Raya announcement to date because I was busy eating kuih raya and some ketupat rendangs. By the way, rendang is one of my favorite dishes! Haha!
Hmm… Although the Raya ‘mood’ has slowly been replaced with other more important events such as Summer Holiday and Puasa Enam (sunnah fasting for 6 days in the month of Syawal), this is not going to stop me from entering another article about Hari Raya. Well, it is not going to be a very long entry, believe me. I have some ketupats and rendangs to eat. Err, that does not sound right. I should have started my puasa enam already!
If it is not for Proton, there will be no atom? Well, that’s what a scientist would say. But, for me – Proton is not a mediocre car maker. Proton is bigger than just a “car company“. It was a great strategic move!
This special edition of “Proud to be Malaysian” is dedicated to the people of Malaysia who are seeking the truth about their beloved country, whether it is really the right place to stay or otherwise. It is also initiated as a reminder to us how grateful we should be as a Malaysian, especially towards the celebration of Merdeka on 31st August 2017. As for me, Malaysia is the nicest place and I am not biased. There are rooms for improvement within the systems or policies here and there, but in overall – Malaysia is a nice place! Alhamdulillah.
