This is my first time being away from my own home country for Independence Day. Had a mini countdown just now with the rest of the Malaysians staying in KE7 Hall.
All of us sang "Negaraku" while the flag was raised by Kenneth. Then, we had to sing our respective states' songs. There were only five people from WP but all of them except me didn't know how to sing the song!
It's mainly because we never had a state song until a few years back and three of them are already seniors here in NUS. My neighbour, Siew Wai didn't know about the song because she went to TARC right after secondary school. But, I went to MBSSKL after secondary school where we still had assembly every Monday morning.
So, how like that? I had to sing the song ALONE in front of everyone. Omg, damn nerve-wrecking because I've never done that before. I got stuck halfway because I couldn't remember the song. Actually I could remember, but my nerves got to me. Hehehe. :D
Anyway, gotta go to bed now. Class at 8 a.m. Oh how I loathe Mondays. Sigh. :/ No public holiday for me. :(
Have a great Independence Day Malaysians!
