16 September 2009, this is the day our Father of Independence, Tunku Abd Rahman announce the formation of Malaysia 46 years ago. A federation consist of 14 state at that time, 11 states of the already independence Malaya with Singapore, Sarawak and Sabah. Singapore left the Federation at 9 August 1965. Brunei Darussalam rejects the idea of joining the federation in last minutes.

The Federation means that each states in Malaysia is equal to one entity of Independence Nation with each states corporate with each other where a rich country help the poor and more develop help the less developed states. This function is supervised by the Federal territory. But, there is also some states enjoy its own special rights.

  1. Sabah and Sarawak
    Both of this states has the power to control its emigration and ingenious people special rights. Even has its own minister in its states government.

  2. Johor
    Even though military and defense is the power of the Federal Government, Johor is the only states that has its own army named ‘Askar Timbalan Setia’. Currently serve as a private army for Sultan of Johor. A special right for the Sultan and citizen of Johor.

Political stability, social prosperity and economy progress has already changes the landscape of both Borneo states. (source)

The new Malaysia F1 team

I’m both surprised and petrified when the first time I hear about our Prime Minister plan to formed Malaysia own F1 team, 1Malaysia. This is the first time where Malaysia citizen itself will take place in its formation. Located in Sepang Circuit, Lotus engine will be used in the new team.

If this is a new step as a reform for Malaysia engineering achievement, then nothing else is better than this. The new team drivers will at least one is from Malaysia. The Malaysia team will participate in 2010. (source)
