Wow, 50 years already! It was just being officially recognized in 2010 by Najib Rasak. So previously it was not recognized and no public holiday before 2010. Not bad, now we can enjoy 2 independent days holiday! Another one is on August 31. :) Thank you thank you!
But wait! I realize one interesting thing, Government Debt to GDP climbs significantly in 2010 from 42.8% to 55.4% and after that has never gone down. So this Debt-to-GDP ratio increase was caused by this Malaysia Day declaration?
Ops, can you take it back so the Debt-to-GDP can stay low? lol?
Happy Malaysia Day and enjoy the break!
