Hari Malaysia?.. Holiday!

Malaysia Day is held on September 16 every year to celebrate the joining of Tanah Melayu, Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore to form Malaysia. Since 2012, this date had been announced as a public holiday for every state in Malaysia. For this year, the date is on Sunday and the public holiday has been brought to Monday and as far as i know, it was exceptional for Kedah and Kelantan because their Sunday is considered as a working day.

So, the question is, what did I do on that day?.. Am I celebrating it?.. Do I know the history behind the date?.. Sincerely, I barely know the historical details of Hari Malaysia. So, it seems to me that it was just another plain and less meaningful public holiday of the year. Haha!.. I'm just being extra excited because we were not having any class on Monday. It's like having TWO SUNDAY in a week!..XD

As usual, I woke up late on public holiday. It was 10.00 in the morning and I hardly wanted to wake up.

At about 2.00 p.m, I got an SMS from my friend, PALI..
"Woi! kemon la.. kalo ikut kalendar barat, pagi die smpai 11.59 je.. ko punye pagi smpai mampos!.. Kemain susah nk mengangkat fon.. ltk dlm peti sejuk ke?!.. Jom r KAROK lagu 1 Malaysia sempena Hari Malaysia yg tercinte ini.. haha!"

 At last, me and 3 of my friends decided to watch a movie at Aeon Jusco Bukit Tinggi.

We were having hard and funny time in choosing a movie and we all agreed to watch a film entitled THE WATCH! and we didn't even know what story is it about in the first place. We just chose it based on the poster and also because of Ben Stiller. Here I attached the trailer of the movie..

This movie is actually not suitable for us, because it is full of 18SX jokes and humour, but to be honest, it was EXTREMELY FUNNY!.. HAHA!.. We continued to laugh even after it ended!.. HAHAHA!.. Watch it at your own risk..=P 

Then, we hang out at Shah Alam, wandering around Dataran, enjoying the view and returned home late at night. 

At the end of the day, i never knew the true meaning of Hari Malaysia. However, I experienced most of my day with my best friends and that is to me, the most valuable moments to be remembered.

-They are my 'Hari Malaysia', WE unite to form US-
