Malaysia's 50th Independence Day

My beloved country, Malaysia, is celebrating its 50th Independence Day today on 31 August 2007, the day it gained independence from the British.

Plenty of activities yesterday night that continued all the way to the midnight countdown at various places in Kuala Lumpur, the capital city and held at other various cities throughout Malaysia. Yesterday, a number of us were in church praying for the nation, Malaysia's King and Prime Minister and unceasing unity.

This morning, a large parade happened at the Dataran Merdeka ("Merdeka Square") to commemorate the auspicious day with Malaysia's King, DYMM Sultan Mizan and HRH The Duke of York, Prince Andrew Edward from the British Royal Family attending the event.
