Happy 55th birthday Malaysia :)
I've read in some random forum sites criticize Malaysia for being weak and timid in getting our liberty when we were colonized by British and others.
Those countries who condemned us, don't have to be specifically which country, but generally those who are envious toward our achievement so far,, actually do not understand the connotation behind our method in getting freedom.
For not being biased, let's categorized people in few categories,
1) those with brains, 2) those with strengths, and 3) those without anything
In any competition, we will use either our brain or our strength to win,, same concept how Malaysia get its independence..
We don't fight in a war doesn't mean we are a weak nation, it only shows we are an intelligent nation in contending our liberty..
Being intelligent is greater than being strong.
How did Singapore achieve its independency? *google google* Without having to be involved in a war, Singapore proved to be the most developed country in SouthEast Asia, and Malaysia we are still developing but, we ranked number 2.
How did other countries in Southeast Asia get its freedom.? And, Thailand has never been colonized.. Where are they now? *google google*
At least the most poorest family in Malaysia is not as poor as compare to those from third world countries.We don't have to knock on someone's car window to sell tissue.Pursuing study isn't a big problem. Getting a job is quite difficult, but opportunity can be gained. Then, be grateful :)
Proud Malaysian *leaving the political issues behind.
P/S: My historical study is limited to Southeast Asia :p
Q: they say malaysia came from indonesia but why we gained our independence from british? *heeeee*
