国庆日的早晨

今早到了Stadium Merdeka 对面 Mirama Hotel 旁的小面档吃早餐。我故意选了一个面向Stadium Merdeka 的位子坐下,叫了碗清汤米粉与出名的酿豆腐,慢慢的品尝。

在这样一个特别的日子,坐在已有几十年历史的老档,嚼吃着传统的味道,望着清冷的Stadium Merdeka ,我的思绪又开始了一场漫游。耳边响起了一阵阵的 “Merdeka! Merdeka!”叫声。那是多么的激昂,多么的澎湃啊!人们欢呼着自由的喜悦,留着感动的热泪。人潮越来越多,个个脸上都是发着光,个个心里都是发着热。突然,一辆 LRT 从我眼前缓缓而过,打断了我的思绪。LRT 走后,留下青葱的老树排成一行的围绕着清冷色退的Stadium Merdeka。我不由得的叹了一声。

刚刚那一幕幕49 年前的独立欢庆情景,只是从电视上看过的一些画面。虽然,看得到当时人们的欢喜与雀跃,但对于我们这些出生在独立后的人民来说,那种确实的心情是永远无法感受到的。我们也爱国啊,但我们对国庆日的感觉却绝对有别于那时的人们。事实上,爱国的意义与方式在49年后的今天以改变了许多,或者应该说进化了。所以,为何还要以旧时的意义与方式来衡量新时代的爱国精神呢?

Summary
I went to the hawker stall near to Stadium Merdeka for my breakfast this morning. I sat facing to Stadium Merdeka. It was so quiet and lonely accompanied by the old trees.

Stadium Merdeka used to be very crowded 49 years ago. The moment our first PM made the announcement, people were so happy and graceful to the independence.
However, for the new generation, we can only watch it from the TV and we can’t feel what they felt. We do love our country very much, but the meaning of Independence Day to us is much more different from the older generation. So, please do not judge our patriotism with old perception.

其实说起来,我好惭愧。因为从来都没有早起在大草场那儿尽过做国人的一份责任。从来就没在国庆是为国家打打气之类的。

可能人在国外的缘故吧,也许将一切的怨恨都抛在脑后。很自然地很想过国看看在国庆现场的清晨,会否很来个温馨的感触呢?

你的情况让我想起前阵子那位高材生写的《使我不要国家,还是国家不要我?》。好无奈啊。

国庆日对我来说只是假期吧了,可以让我好好的在家睡个够。

凡奇 Frankie:
每次踏入你的领域
感觉上有点怪怪地
也许是你的部落格比较特别吧...双语言..
而且你是学中医的,中医师让我想起了苦涩的中药...恩...

ps:《使我不要国家,还是国家不要我?》
我想我也应该好好反醒..反醒!
毕竟,政府都一次又一次让我失望...

阿凯,
所以我说,国庆日的意义已有很大的改变。

@je1102 ,
怪怪地?可能我也是一个怪怪的人吧,:)
双语言是因为有些朋友的要求,我又懒得开个英文blog。
中药也未必是苦的,它就像人生,什么味道都有。如果你伤心了,你就拿到苦的药。
其实,我想使我的写作方式吧?我都是乱来的。

对不起,《使我不要国家,还是国家不要我?》应该是 《是我不要国家,还是国家不要我?》。是时候我们站出来了。

可以運用自如雙語,好厲害!

@je1102 said...

凡奇 Frankie:
是时候我们站起来???还是种族平等...

呵呵!中药未必是苦地我赞成,可是大部份都是苦的哦...是啦!你学中医很久了吗?在大马有中医学院吗??

阿凯 said...

《是我不要国家,还是国家不要我?》我想最重要的是我要的是什么生活?

凡奇 Frankie said...

Mee Ling,
運用自如雙語? 我听了好沉重。语文一直不是我的强项,我从来没有好好的master any语文。全都是Chap Palang的。哈哈。不过,我却很爱它。

@je1102,
是时候我们站出来捍卫我们的权利。我只想为我们的后代争取他们应得的。从现在种种的迹象,我感觉到那股阴谋的逼近。

我是应兴趣而自学的。大马有很多中医学院,KL就有好几间。你有兴趣吗?咯咯。

阿凯,
有时候,不只是我们想要怎样就怎样,大环境的因素也是我们必须注意的。

Dear Frankie,

It has been 49 years our country tasted the independency. It is true that our 1st independence nearly everyone came to the stadium to celebrate the glorious day and as years passed by people tend to watch the 'EVENT' via TV.

YET, don't feel sad. After all every Malaysian are still celebrating the 'HARI MERDEKA' but is by each individual's way due to their commitment in the work, financial status, priorities and where they are at the moment.

We as MALAYSIAN are proud to be in the country and I do believe there are lots of people do envy us, the Malaysian. It is because our country is full of multi-racial who live in this country peacefully, no disaster like hurricane, volcano, earthquake and so forth. BUT the main point here is our country full of color where it is hard to find in other country. We used to have only 3 major colors (hope you understand what I meant) but now we had become RAINBOW as now there are foreigner find Malaysia their 2nd home. Also they are looking forward to live with us harmoniously, isn’t it great?

So besides that ever, our country has improved tremendously if you really compare from the 1st celebration to now the 49th year. People used to go to the stadium because at that time not all people can afford to have a television in their houses and not all places received electricity. Now, we are more advance compare to other developing countries (correct me if I am wrong).

Well, you see Frankie, though the stadium now sound so quiet yet, we the Malaysian still celebrating this glorious day in other places and together with our friends, partner, loved ones, families and fellow colleagues. The best thing is there are people who rather celebrate this day with those handicaps, children welfare and old folks.

Lastly my dearest Frankie, please don’t feel sad just because we no longer celebrate MERDEKA DAY in the place originally where the celebration starts. Just remember, as Malaysian we will all remember this date that we will have to celebrate no matter what we are doing or feeling as that is the moment MALAYSIA got its INDEPENDENCY………….. MERDEKA………MERDEKA………MERDEKA………MERDEKA………MERDEKA………MERDEKA………MERDEKA………MERDEKA.

Dear Marine,
I think you have get me wrong. Must be my poor english make all this confuse. Actually I'm not sad about the Stadium Merdeka, but I'm sad about the mind set of certain people.

Our new generation have their own way to think, have their own ambition, have their own way to love the country. But there are some people likes to use the old perception to judge the new generation.

The reality is the world has change and when will we change our mindset?

顺理成章
