Wednesday, September 15, 2010


Lest we forget, Sep 16 is Malaysia Day. September 16 (or 916) is the most significant date in the history of Malaysia and must be remembered and appreciated always by us and the future generations because on this auspicious date Sabah and Sarawak successfully formed the Federation of Malaysia together with Malaya.

Sep 16, 2010 will be the 47th Malaysia Day and for the first time, it has been declared as a national public holiday. Imagine, for 46 years this important day was never formally celebrated in West Malaysia.

SHARE HOLDING FACT: Formation of a country called Malaysia was made possible with three partners, namely, Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak. That means, each partner share would be at least 30%.

REALITY: Sabah and Sarawak contribute 100% of their oil revenue to the Federal government but only received 5% in return.

MYTH: Sabah and Sarawak joined Malaysia.

IN TRUTH: Sabah and Sarawak NEVER JOINED Malaysia. Sabah and Sarawak help to form Malaysia.

To all Malaysian readers, Happy Malaysia Day.
