Despite all, in spite all, I am proud to be a Malaysian. Saya anak bangsa Malaysia :)
We were taught to sing the national anthem since young - and each time now, I sing it again, I could feel tears well up - because of the Malaysian pride.
Tanah tumpahnya darahku
Rakyat hidup, bersatu dan maju
Rahmat bahagia, Tuhan kurniakan
Raja kita selamat bertakhta
(My translation below)
My native land
The people live in unity and progress
God grants blessings and mercy
Our King rules in sovereignty
Video of the national anthem - performed with a nice twist; video made 2 years ago, hence the 54th year credit message at the end.
As it says for our theme this year - Malaysiaku Berdaulat, Tanah Tumpahnya Darahku (My Sovereign Malaysia, My Native Land).
