so… Merdeka Day (Independence Day) came and went in Kuching, and it’s like just another holiday here. nothing really special – no big concerts or street parties or people carrying the Malaysian flag while riding their motorcycles and making a lot of noise with their horn along the streets. didn’t see a single car whose bonnet is covered with the national flag either unlike in KL or Penang. what’s more, there wasn’t even a single sound of fireworks. real quiet…. 🙂
either that or i was really really dead asleep at 11pm on Merdeka Eve.
