Jalur Gemilang, Our Flag, Our Pride

The Jalur Gemilang

Bersih 4 or Janji Bersih or Janji Demokrasi was over but a lot of people are still angry about the bad things they did.

And I am also angry especially about the Sang Saka Malaya issue that I think is dishonouring our country and the real independence fighters.

Sang Saka Malaya

When I first read the news about some demonstrators waving weird flags and distributing flyers saying that Jalur Gemilang must go and the weird flag should become the new flag of Malaysia, I was angry.

I felt that the actions were rude and unpatriotic and suspected that they want to turn Malaysia into a republic nation like Indonesia and Singapore.

This flyer was distributed at the Janji Bersih demonstration.

I love Jalur Gemilang and I love my country and I am angry when people do not respect the laws.

I keep on asking why must the demonstrators were so rude and what was so special about the weird flag to them?

Jalur Gemilang is very beautiful indeed, with pretty red and white stripes, beautiful crescent and star and with all the primary colours that describes the important facts about Malaysia.

The crescent represents Islam, the religion of the country, the 14 strips represents the 13 states and the federal government and the 14 points of the star represent their unity.

Blue symbolizes the unity of the Malaysian people; the yellow of the star and crescent is the royal colour of our royal rulers.

So I wonder why some people think that Sang Saka Malaya will be a better flag for Malaysia, unless if they have bad agendas.

Historian Prof. Ramlah Adam said that Sang Saka was the flag of the Kesatuan Melayu Muda (KMM) or Young Malays Union whose agenda was to join Malaysia and Republic Indonesia and turn Malaysia into a republic nation just like Indonesia.

After understanding the real facts, I feel even more angry; especially when PR leaders lied and claimed that Sang Saka Malaya was waved to honour the independence fighters and that the flag was a historical flag and a symbol of the fights for our independence.

Our real independence fighters are the fighters who supported the sultans as our rulers and not those who wanted to turn Malaysia into a republic nation!

So do the people who claim that Sang Saka Malaya is a symbol of the fights for our independence share the same dream with those people who tried to turn Malaysia into a republic nation?

On Wednesday May 9, 2012 a Russian Superjet 100 aircraft went missing on Wednesday about 40 miles south of Jakarta during an exhibition flight with 45 people on board.

At dawn on Thursday a rescue helicopter spotted debris on the side of the dormant Mount Salak volcano.

When a rescue team arrived at the wreckage they have not found any survivors.

A picture taken from the helicopter appeared to show that the plane hit the top of an almost vertical wall of rock.

RUETERS reported that Sukhoi’s chief civil test pilot, Alexander Yablontsev, and his co-pilot, Alexander Kochetkov, flew the plane.

35 people on board the plane were potential buyers and journalists.

The others were Russians, all from Sukhoi companies, an American consultant with a local airline and a Frenchman with aircraft engine-maker Snecma.

They are still investigating the reason of the disaster.

I’m sad and sorry for the victims, their friends and families and their friends.

They must be very sad.

Two Earthquakes On Wednesday

Yesterday, two earthquakes hit two different parts of the world.

The first earthquake hit Indonesia and it could be felt even in Malaysia.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the first 8.6-magnitude quake was centered 20 miles (33 kilometers) beneath the ocean floor around 269 miles (434 kilometers) from Aceh province, followed by an 8.2 magnitude aftershock  two hours later.

According to CNN, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a tsunami watch for the entire Indian Ocean but was lifted later.

Next, another eartquake hit Mexico.

The USGS said the first quake on Wednesday evening in the western state of Michoacan had a magnitude of 6.5 and was recorded at a depth of 12.4 miles.

It was followed by a second earthquake, of a magnitude of 6.9 and at a depth of 6.2 miles that hit somewhere near Baja California early Thursday morning.

Earthquake is a disaster but luckily both earthquakes did not caused any tsunami.

UFO Landed In Indonesia?

On January 24, 2011 a crop circle was found in an Indonesian paddy field in Sleman, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

I think that it is a UFO crop circle.

UFO means Unidentified Flying Object.

UFO could be an alien‘s spaceship.

It may have came from another planet.

I learn about crop circle from SimCity 3000 Unlimited.

Those islands are popular surfing spots.

At least 25 people were killed in this disaster.

Government volcanologist Surono told AFP that they heard 3 explosions around 6 pm (1100 GMT) spewing volcanic material as high as 1.5 kilometres (one mile) and sending heat clouds down the slopes.

Thousands of people were in makeshift emergency shelters late Tuesday.

The volcano is on the highest alert level.

Mount Merapi is Indonesian most active volcano.

Scientists have warned that pressure building beneath Merapi’s lava dome could trigger its most powerful explosion in years.

If that really happens, it will cause a great disaster.

Indonesia is in the Pacific ‘Ring of Fire’.
