JTCars Merdeka Medley

September 4, 2015

Oh Merdeka day; what joy. One of those rare occasions where many businesses close in unison and people actually take the entire day off. Most Chinese and Malay eateries are closed during this period, so it's bad timing to get a sore-throat as the only meals you find could be the Indian, Mamaks and shopping-complexed franchises.

After lengthy periods stuck in office, you can finally spend quality R&R with your cherished motor. Fast or slow, in da club or mixed fruit, it's your choice. And you have the whole day to sip through.

First up, the Germans are punctual and on standby. As usual, they perform flawlessly near or far.

Some decide to evade the morning rush and opt for a noon cruise. It proved quite popular.

And we end the day sun-burnt, hand blistered, knees knackered but filled and happy.

Moments like this, we really start to appreciate the true meaning of the word Merdeka. Like a child, it is something we dedicate our entire lives to nurture but remains in mortal state. This makes it priceless and we hold that dear to our hearts. For every Malaysian, here's to to our independence, to our freedom and to many more to come.

Have a great one Malaysia, as too, Monday is holiday!

MERDEKA! MERDEKA! MERDEKA!
