Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka! It’s the time of the year again, when Malaysians gather to celebrate the independence of our beloved country. The event started with heartwarming speeches from the MSO president, Jia Yong, and MASCA president, Zayana. Then, all members were asked to stand and sing our national anthem, Negaraku. Fried rice was served for lunch and Malay music was being played while members were eating. After lunch, a Kahoot trivia about Malaysia was introduced, as well as a traditional clothing fashion show. The top 3 in trivia and best-dressed for the fashion show were given prizes. The committee also signed a handmade Malaysian flag that was made during the Merdeka event last year, hoping it continues to be signed year after year as a MSO tradition. Despite the event being delayed an hour at the start due to venue issues, everything went on smoothly and we could see that members had a good time.
