We have the World's tallest office buildings Petronas Twin Towers which are located in the centre of Kuala Lumpur and they used to be the World's tallest buildings. Something we should be very proud of.
Look at those highways in Malaysia. I bet no nation in the South East Asia can beat us in the number of highways. Oh well, forget about the road accident rate.
When it comes to eating, we have various choices of food available in Malaysia. Since we have so many races, we get to enjoy each race's delicious and unique food. We have Indian's Roti Canai, Malay's Nasi Lemak and Chinese's Fried Kuew Teow, to name a few. Uss, pedasnya...
With so many races around, we have got to learn a few languages which include at least one language that is understood by all Malaysian. This includes our own mother tongue, national language Malay and International language English. So we becomes something as below:
We have got no volcano in Malaysia! Should feel lucky because we won't need to encounter earthquakes and being "chased" by flowing lava.
There is no war in Malaysia. Compared to those countries at war, we are considered very lucky. We have home but they don't. They are homeless. We have 3 meals in a day but they onlt have one meal in 3 days.
We have no hard time voting for the next president during the general election. Unlike the US where their president can only serve up to 4 years, we can vote for the same person for the next 20 years unless he decides to step down and retire from the world of politics.
We have Proton. Although It is facing some financial problems now, we still get to buy car at lower cost. In other countries, there is a limit to how long a car can be used but not in Malaysia. Look at the Proton Saga in your neighbourhood, it is 27 years old now and still working!
See? How lucky are we as Malaysians. Happy 50th Independence Day, Malaysia!
