Do you know the hibiscus had to go through the stuff competition between rose, jasmine, lotus, ylang, frangipani, and bunga tanjung?

While east coast people prefer rose; the west coast prefers rose the hibiscus won the game.

The best remembrance of hibiscus is when Malaysia was chosen as a Commonwealth Games XVI organiser back in 2018 & Visit Malaysia 2007. A super gorgeous brilliant logo and designs were seen at every corner of Malaysia.

The designs had a very close resemblance to the hibiscus that the whole nation celebrates it.

You can easily spot hibiscus flowers almost everywhere in Malaysia along the roadsides and government buildings.

The same no longer exists. I wonder how many Malaysians still remember what our national flower is.

Patriotism is no longer strong.

Hibiscus is far hidden from the naked eye. Its celebration is fading away.

I miss those days. The hibiscus and the country.

Happy Independence. #HappyMerdeka
