Today marks the 59th anniversary of the formation of ‘Malaysia’– a federation of 13 states spanning the Malay Peninsula, Sarawak, and Sabah. This nation of rich ethnicities and cultures endure because Malaysians uphold respect for other’s beliefs and differences.
On this day to celebrate the unity of our nation, we give thanks for being able to live in harmony and peace together. It is a remarkable achievement and no small feat. Let us continue this wonderful way of life, and further develop our union and nation to greater heights. “Dirgahayu Malaysia”!
