One helluva first hand recollection of that fateful night in Permatang Pauh...

Truly a masterpiece by Jude Manickam! With his flair and the typing motion of his fingers, he managed to express what many anak-anak Bangsa Malaysia felt on that defining August 26th night. Thanks Jude and yeah... Oh, what a night! Read more here...
And this song lyrics really caught my attention. He claimed that it was one of the patriotic song that he sang in school. Well, i don't remember having to sing any song like that. Perhaps, it wasn't there during my time. Nevertheless, it's a good one for moment like this...
Here it goes...
Perajurit Tanah Air

Inilah barisan kita, Yang ikhlas berjuang.

Siap sedia berkorban, Untuk ibu pertiwi!

Sebelum kita berjaya, Jangan harap kami pulang!

Inilah sumpah pendekar kita, Menuju medan bakti!

Andai kata kami gugur semua, Taburlah bunga di atas pusara.

Kami mohon doa, Malaysia berjaya!

Semboyan telah berbunyi, Menuju medan bakti!

Now, how i wish i was there that night to rejoice with fellow anak anak bangsa Malaysia. I know the feeling would have been more intense. Just like the one in March 8th where millions of united Malaysian went through that beautiful euphoric feeling.. Yeah, moments like this makes me more Malaysian.

Whisperer, FYI, Jude Manickam is MALE, not female as you wrongly assumed in your post. He is from BM and is married to Anne with one son.

Do not assume that only women can write like that. Men can write well too!!!!!

Check your facts before jumping to sexist conclusions.

Thanks for your info, anon..

Nothing sexist here. Just giving credit to the writer of this letter.

Will change that sexist part.

Gosh! That song was playing in my head for some time now. Remembered the time we sang the song in school.. I like the tune and somehow the lyrics today tells you of another sense of justice. To me this song is apt for the sopo bloggers who worked so hard to ensure that the other side of the story is brought forth to the masses and should one fall, we shall honor him/her with all our heart and to continue the struggle.

I was thinking for a long time to dedicate that song to our on the ground bloggers who have worked tirelessly to ensure our nation breaks free from the shackles of lies and oppression.
