proud to be a malaysian

Are you proud to be a Malaysian?

Everyone is. But how do you show it?
Not everyone can instantly tell the reason why do they proud to be a Malaysian. It's not necessary for us to be proud of Malaysia because of the country's achievement (as in economically, scientific research and so on). Not all of us have the time to dig for it. 

You know what,
what if I tell you, we can also be proud of Malaysia by appreciating the achievement of its citizen. They can be Malaysian athlete, celebrity, leader, author, and even the youth.

Dato Seri Michelle Yeoh Starred in James Bond Tomorrow Never Dies, Kungfu Panda 2,  appear several times in movies with Jackie Chan,and lots of other famous movies.

Recently she stunningly portrayed the famous Aung San Suu Kyi, a respected Burmese opposition politician and General Secretary of the National League for Democracy (NLD) in Burma in "The Lady". She was born in Ipoh Malaysia, which is my hometown. Her acting career had brought fame to the state until she was invited twice to the palace by Sultan Azlan Shah to be rewarded the Dato and Dato Seri title. If a sultan can praise her success, why not us? 

We have not only managed to ace in the entertainment career, a Malaysian is also able to shake the world of fashion, and he is Dato Jimmy Choo. Was born in Penang Malaysia, based in England, he is a luxury high fashioned women shoemaker. 

Bestowed a state award carrying the title of Dato' by the Sultan of Pahang, and he olso conferred an OBE (Order of The British Empire) by Queen Elizabeth II in recognition of his services to the shoe and fashion industry in the UK. One of Jimmy Choo’s handmade shoes fan is Princess Diana.

A good shoemaker will have loyal customers.  Princess Diana just love to buy many pairs of shoes of the same style but different colors, for evening wear and to coordinate it with her day suit. For seven years, he’s been making Princess Diana, and thanks to her, along with Jimmy Choo’s talent and his strong establishment, many big names are wearing his shoes, even though it’s no longer personally made by him. 

The editor of Vogue magazine (which is the biggest magazine in Fashion world, well I can say not everyone can get to be in the cover) is now running his company. Some of his customers are, Beyonce, David Beckam’s wife, Victoria, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Madonna, Dato Siti Nurhaliza, Shafinaz Selamat and the riches. 

Not only the veteran, the Malaysian youth can also do the same. We have Pandelela Rinong. She's only 19, yet she becomes the first Malaysian woman to win an Olympic medal. Not to mention, Dato Lee Chong Wei is famous as the world number one badminton player. Even though he lost against Lin Dan a couple of times, but that is the point that make him even stronger and not to stay in the comfort zone. Seeing he fighting is full of inspiration and we all do feel the heat, every time we watch his final match, right? The silver medal from the last Olympic is a huge victory for him, and all of us. Even Lin Dan himself thanked him for being a strong opponent. 

Amalina Che Bakri. She didn't only prove to us that it is possible to achieve like tons of A's, and inspired other students to ace even more than her; do you know that she's writing a book that is promising soon to be the reference for many gynecologist and doctors around UK? It’s even planned by the publisher to distribute the book around the Europe countries as well due to her reputation and contributions to the Cheltenham Ladies’ College in the UK.

I'm truly amazed by how these people had brought fame to Malaysia.
By sharing with my friends about my favorite Malaysians is my way  of spreading the love and passion to be a successful Malaysian.
