My blog is 3 years today !! HAppy birthday eih mafeitz.blogspot.com :)
As far as I can remember , I've always enjoyed watching the merdeka celebrations on telly every 31st August morning. I don't think I've written about my memories about my involvement in the celebrations before. I had the opportunity to do so in the fourth form - I reckon the whole batch were "forced" by the school to join in the celebrations. I had my different opportunity ; we had to go for auditions - and I was one of the 7 selected as the RUKUNEGARA oath readers.For 50 years celebration this year , they had 50 on that stage.
Look for me !!!! haks..
they got my name and Fauzi's mixed up..
It was a memorable moment that i will cherish forever. I was so proud standing in front of the Dataran Merdeka royal stage seeing Agong n PM in front of my eyes - my very first close encounter.I cannot remember how nervous I was but I am sure it must have been majorly butterfly in the stomach because i remember going to the Dataran toilet ( which was then VERY DIRTYY !!! ) prior to our appointment !!
I think that was the last year we chanted DAULAT TUANKU x3 after the RUKUNEGARA oath reading. I was smirking in one of the salutes and it was caught on TV much to the dismay of my teachers in school !! hahahaha... Who would ever thought , that cynical smile was a prelude to the constitutional crisis that would erupt later ; thus Daulat Tuanku became a taboo ( in a way ) after that.

I'm blogging this out , so that one day Dzaeffran and Qaisya will read and see their walid standing really proud celebrating Malaysia's independence..
p/s My next Merdeka wish list was and still is to be one of the ones reciting Merdeka poetry in Dataran Merdeka. but first , I have to win the Sayembara !! How do I do that ? haks.. Anybody can help to make this dream a reality ??
