Many of us do not know that the actual Malaysia Independence is that of the 16 Sept 1963 when Singapore, North Borneo and Sabah merged with Malaya (Federation of Malay States) but not of the 31 Aug 1957 when Malaya gained independence. Those of from the Borneo States (Sabah, Sarawak) remember that by calling it Hari Borneo or some sort and not of the day the incumbent Malaya's day of independence. But what is Independence? Freedom? Freedom from being a Slave or Owned by a Master? Here, 47 years on, we are still not independent. Slaves in the Ancient Days are when we owe money and cannot pay up, we are sold as Slaves , similar to what we have Bankruptcy and Illegal Immigrants or Human Trafficking. Here, ourselves and Children are still at the mercy of our LORDS, the Banks and Institutions, such as MARA, PTPTN and other "Foundations". How can we be free? Those who are poor are totally free. They own their own land, without any caveat or what sort, and everything they buy are in cash. In the matter of fact, these people are those who , what we called Free and Independent. Selamat Hari Malaysia everyone, Singaporeans, Malayans, Sabahans and Sarawakians alike.
