Merdeka Day (Independence Day of Malaysia)

  • August 31, 2020

“ Today’s Doodle celebrates Malaysia’s Independence Day, known in Malay as Hari Merdeka, in honor of 63 years of Malaysian autonomy. On this day in 1957, the nation then known as the Federation of Malaya officially gained its sovereignty from British rule.
This holiday, also called Hari Kebangsaan or National Day, is not to be confused with Malaysia Day, which commemorates the date in 1963 when the name Malaysia was officially adopted. Across the Malay Peninsula, the nation’s people rejoices in their freedom and independence.
Featured in the Doodle artwork is the orangutan, Asia’s only great ape, which in Malaysia is found in the rainforest of Borneo. These tree-dwelling primates share almost 97% of their genes with Homo sapiens, so they’re considered one of the humans’ closest relatives. This special relationship is reflected in the name “orangutan,” which derives from Malay and translates to “person of the forest.”
Selamat Hari Merdeka! (Happy Independence Day!)”

Merdeka Day (Independence Day of Malaysia)
Today 31st of August marks the 63th Year of Independence in Malaysia that has been widely celebrated by all Malaysians. We are surprised that Google also makes remarks with an Orang Utan as a special doodle today in tuned with our National Day’s celebration.
This year is special in many circumstances in our country where we experienced a sudden political changed and followed by the covid-19 pandemic that impacted everyone here in Malaysia and globally. Many things have changed and we all need to live in a new normality with all the safety and protective guidelines to comply all the times. We have experienced the hardest phase of the Movement Control Restriction commenced in March 2020 and now we are in the Recovery Phase of the Control which allows domestic travel and free movement in our daily routines. Many lives have lost globally due to Covid-19 and economy has suffered especially the travel industry where many countries have shut down their borders in order to contain and control the spread of the virus.
Here in Gomymedic, we have witnessed the worst condition of travel industry in this century or since human history where we learnt to treasure every moment of our life and sharing our love and care to those in need in our society. There are many people who are desperately waiting to go abroad for medical treatment but they just need to be patient and keep waiting till we find the vaccines or till we are cleared to be able to fly freely even though we may not have the right answer of when this will happen but we are holding strong to the hope that this is not going to be too long as we are confident that we can fight against this Covid-19 with our medical technology and knowledge and talents of our scientist provided we all shared the same vision and benefited each other as a human race without any barriers of country or region or even races. Hence we all can stand in hand in hand to protect our land and our people as a one Malaysia or one world. Happy Merdeka Day with blessings.
