|Really guys, it's Malaysia Day, minus the '1': Hannah|
PETALING JAYA, Sept 16: There is still a section of Malaysians who are confused about today's public holiday, thinking that it has to do with prime minister Najib Razak's political battlecry '1Malaysia'.
Subang Jaya state representative Hannah Yeoh is least amused, reminding the people that today is a celebration of Malaysia Day, and not '1Malaysia Day'.
“Today is Malaysia Day, not 1Malaysia Day. Do not commercialise historical days and add '1' to every product, slogan, speech,” lamented Hannah in her Facebook posting.
Hannah also was dumbfounded over the announcement by Najib in Sandakan, Sabah about the "1Malaysia milk" programme, part of efforts to build a generation of healthier and stronger Malaysians.
The programme which started with an initial cost of RM4 million will enable all pupils in primary schools nationwide to receive free milk from next month.
“Free milk is good but no need to label it 1Malaysia milk," retorted Hannah, sarcastically questioning whether the name suggested that the milk could now be consumed by Malaysians of all races.
On Malaysia Day, Hannah urged Malaysians to "live in substance, not the form", adding that the '1Malaysia' slogan was as wrong as singer cum composer Namewee’s controversial tweaking of the national anthem to "Negarakuku".
“Namewee has been questioned before for adding 'ku' to our Negaraku. But Barisan Nasional can get away with adding '1' to our Malaysia,” wrote Hannah
