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According to some historical documents, Malaysia is the sole inventor of “Sepak Takraw” which was originally called Sepak Raga.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.
As of 3:30 am London time today, Labour Party is leading the exit polls results by 101 early seats, leaving Conservative Party behind with 71. Analysts are predicting that Conservatives may have to “kiss goodbye” their hope for having a comfortable majority. Mrs. May needs to start worrying about how she can form a stable government should there become a hung parliament.
