Uniquely Malaysia

During the Selangor Chief Minister's Open House held on the 1st day of Hari Raya (also known as Eid ul-Fitr celebration), Malaysians of various races came together for this event! That's the one thing that I find unique about us Malaysians. Growing up in a country with different races, we have got used to coming together for each other's festivals celebrations. That's what I always miss whenever I am working abroad.

Probably this little Sikh boy would grow up to be like many of us ~ enjoying the cultures and festivals of different races that we grow up with! Let's together enjoy the uniqueness that we have in our country and be proud to be Malaysians!

My World Tuesday returns again. Check out the portal to find out what is happening around the world!

Beautiful photo! I love the way the color red is prominent on the boy's head and then echoes in the background. Also, I love the theme of universality-- no matter where you go in the world, when there's something fun to watch, you'll see a child up on his daddy's shoulder!

That's a great thing about Malaysia, J.C. Tolerance in a multiethnic and multireligious communities is a must - otherwise they're going to break up.

Happy Eid to you too.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
