KUALA LUMPUR (BERNAMA): It was a sight to behold, a sound to reckon with and a moment to cherish as intense patriotic spirit rose into the air and hung there as thousands of people joined the national leaders for the 53rd National Day celebration at the Putra Stadium indoor arena in Bukit Jalil, here.

The celebration, themed "1Malaysia Transforming the Nation", the first to be held indoor, was marked by colourful performances, a 14-gun salute, reading of pledge and awe-inspiring displays of grit and courage by the country's security forces.

Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Nur Zahirah arrived at the venue at 8am to the sound of trumpets and thunderous applause from the 10,000 people at the stadium.

Present were Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and wife Puan Sri Norainee Abdul Rahman, former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and cabinet ministers, donning the specially-crafted 1Malaysia batik.

All in all, the celebration, held indoor as a mark of respect for the Ramadan month, involved 8,727 contingent members from departments and institutes under the Education Ministry, security forces personnel, staff of government agencies and departments as well as from the private sector.

I watched this morning's celebration on TV, n I enjoyed it..wishing I was there, reminiscing the times I took part during my school days, practicing and marching in the sun....

My favourite part during any Merdeka celebrations has always been on the police's and army's segments, well..what else, my father was a former policeman after all..hehe.
