Malaysia Tanah Air Ku


SELAMAT MENYAMBUT HARI KEBANGSAAN

Lagu Patriotik
"MALAYSIA TANAH AIR KU"


Malaysia oh tanah air ku

Tanah tempat tumpah darah ku

Negeri elok amat ku cinta

Yang ku puja sepanjang masa

Sawah mu terbentang meluas

Tumbuh-tumbuhan hijau merendang

Bukit mu lurusnya terbentang

Tak jemu mata ku memandang

Sungguh indah di Malaysia

Negeri yang kaya raya

Tempat pusat berniaga

Terkenal di seluruh dunia

Malaysia negeri ku Malaysia

Pusaka tinggalan moyang ku

Tetap sentosa hidup merdeka

Malaysia oh tanah air ku



Composed & Written by

Johar Bahar

Ma'am

I was touched that you highlighted this song: Johar Bahar was my great uncle (my grandma's kid brother). Did you know him personally, ma'am?

Unfortunately no, dear, tapi this is my favourite among all the patriotic songs there are.. the melody and the lyrics menyentuh hati..

Puteri, we had a really swell time yesterday at the malaysia carnival..good turn out, the sun was out - and as the MC for the dance troupe - I had to announce joget lambaaak and great fun was had by all, especially this mak cik.

SElamat menyambut 51 tahun merdeka though i believe we are a bit older than the nation,. kan?

Sdri,
As someone who's a bit older than the nation (I remember Templer Templing in Kuantan, probably the last BA BA-ing in Trengganu, Pok Heng in the Chartered Bank at the foot of Bukit Puteri (not yours by any chance?), and Tuan Bang, er, Banging in Kelantan before we all shouted Merdeka) may I wish you and all your lovely readers Selamat Hari Kebangsaan (I think Hari Merdeka is a wee bit passe now).

And then of course, Selamat Berpuasa. Lovely blog you have here, and that Dungun picture's made me feel all maudlin now...

And of course in Trengganu, once a year, we celebrate that great big railway terminus we have in Dungun, when we all make our Kuih (or is it Tepung?) Sura.

PS I've just remembered: in Kuantan they also had a Tuan Gila. (But not giler-giler, like our kids - and some adults - now).

Kak Teh & Awang
we are indeed a we bit older than the nation; I was three when Tunku raised his hand to shout Merdeka! but living in the boondocks I don't remember a thing, actually.

Glad you enjoyed yrself at the carnival, kak Teh. and Awang, you may be far away, but you haven't forgotten a thing!
