Believe it or not. Negaraku is back in conjunction with Merdeka. According to Bernama, Seventy theatres throughout the country will play the national anthem, Negaraku, and three promos on the independence before the screening of any film in their premises for three weeks beginning tonight in conjunction with the 57th anniversary of Merdeka
Here's the video I posted on my Instagram and shared through my Twitter and Facebook.
Yay or nay? Believe it or not, here's my personal experience, whenever I share this video or news about signing national anthem in cinema with my friends, 8~9 out of 10 would say: "WTF is this", "Damn Sohai la", "Walau need so many pattern meh", "I'm speechless" so and so. YES, YOU! I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU!.
My reaction was to stay quiet with a smile every time when my friends threw their indignant faces while complained this and that to me.
If you asked me, is there anything wrong there?
Certainly Not, this is my answer. Come on guys, 57th Merdeka is on 31st of August and the precious day is just around the corner. Imagine how many our of ancestors, parents and we people have been through, and you know that we're still living well today.
The movie was "Detective Conan: Dimensional Sniper" on that day and with no doubt, many Japaneses family and couples were there. Even though this ain't their nationality, they did as what we did to stand still while the national anthem was going on. However, there are still couple of Malaysians (How did I recognize them as Malaysian? They speak Malaysian Chinese
So what do you think now? I know there was a social war during the election last year. Why don't you just get through it and look forward? This doesn't sound good but I've still got to say this, some Malaysian especially Penanglangs don't like the Malaysia government at all. And what the governments did were all considered full of foolishness and immature actions.
Basically it means that, "People thinks this is right, oh yeah so I think this is right too"
Okay now, here's another example, I'm not pretty sure about other states in Malaysia, but in Penang, there are a lot of countdown activities in some public places and clubs. One of the most-trending one will be held in Precinct 10 "Merdeka Euphoria Countdown: Precinct 10 Outdoor Festival". I've seen a lot people showing off their tickets on Facebook and Instagram. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this is stupid, but I hope that those people would remind themselves the significance of this activity, not only today because everybody is celebrating Merdeka and I join the fun and the day after,
Here's another more obvious phenomenon, do you still remember after the election last year, people started changing their Facebook profile picture to BLACK as a sign of dirty-election? (I'm not saying this is true, it has been so long and the result is the result, that's all). Do you still remember all the Bersih and Ubah picture you made as your profile picture? What was your point? To support To-Make-A-Change right? Then what about Merdeka? It is because nobody started the trend so you just don't know what to do? And all these years you have been saying "I love Malaysia but not the government" and yet you refuse to put Malaysia flag as your profile picture?
The reason for why am I saying this is not because of
Last but not least, Happy Birthday to Malaysia and Happy Holiday to all Malaysians!
