On Friday, August 29, 2008 we went to ” Merdeka Nite Celebration at the Station”. This is a patriotic gathering/celebration organized by the WUMA (Waikato University Malaysian Association) in the building ‘Station’ next to Management School building. The celebration as a remembrance/memorial for our patriots that led our Malaysia country got its independence. The atmosphere is just awesome.

This is our first ever Merdeka celebration outside from Malaysia and we hope this becomes a long time family tradition. We enjoyed the wonderful music along with some dance performed by our Malaysian students! Believe it or not, in a crowd that size we ran into several friends and even some family members. The kids were so well behaved! Even there was no fireworks display this time but we still got the meaning of independence by gathering and joining such celebration. We had so much fun we wish you all were here with us.
