What makes it so special is that we can all live harmoniously in this country, that is because the spirit of One Malaysia. In a way, I am proud to be a Malaysian, no matter how many times I say that I want to live in another country or studying at oversea when I grow up. Home is where the heart is.
There are many reasons behind this. First of all, Malaysians, being of different races, can be seen on the streets in their various costumes and adding color to the scene. The sunny, warm and wet climate throughout the year makes Malaysia a tropical paradise. Visitors like the green forested hills, the golden beaches with graceful coconut palms fringing them, the blue sea and of course of the local cuisine. Foreign tourists find these places ideal for a holiday, as they get away from their cold countries.
Malaysia’s cool hill-resorts like Genting Highlands, Fraser’s Hill and Cameron Highlands make the day refreshing and pleasant and also away from the hot lowlands. I have been to many places, get the experienced of different culture and met new faces, but I realize that nowhere in the world can compare with Malaysia and its friendly people, our colorful culture, rich heritage and especially of our fantastic array of food. Malaysia offers a huge variety of food, from our local cuisine to Western cuisine.
To be Malaysian means having freedom, knowing that we have the freedom to pursue our dreams and grow. We live in a country that supports growth and we can do so much with the support of the government and the people around us. Besides that, people in other countries are beginning to recognize that Malaysia is a growing country and they have positive things to say about it. I’m proud to be part of this nation and that is another reason why I love my country-Malaysia!
Lastly, Malaysia is a rich country and also famous the world over for its rubber, palm oils and exports and tin. Kuala Lumpur, which is the capital city, is the largest in Malaysia, with many modern buildings. I am proud of my country which I love dearly. Be proud to be a Malaysian. Don’t ask what the country has done for you but ask what you have done for the country. I am lucky that I am born in Malaysia, a peaceful and multi-racial country to live in.
