Malaysia turns 57 today

Malaysia celebrates Independence Day today, August 31, making this our 57th year of independence from Great Britain.

The Hibiscus flower featured on this Google Doodle is our national flower. We certainly could do with more of this plant growing in the city. I heard it needs a lot of water, maybe that's why.

Here is where the country is. After the two Malaysian Airlines mishaps in a span of less than four months, I suppose everyone knows where we are now. In case you haven't heard, you can read about MH370, the plane that vanished without a trace with 239 people in it, and MH17, the plane that was hit over war-zone Ukraine killing all 298 people onboard.

And this is the Malaysian flag. I think it'd make a great outfit. Yes?

Happy Merdeka!
