Happy Malaysia Day!

Sabah will be hosting the 47th anniversary of Malaysia Day on Sept 16, 2010. Recently declared as a national public, the state and federal governments are jointly organising the celebrations that will be held at Padang Merdeka, Kota Kinabalu - the historical venue where Sabah and Sarawak joined the Federation of Malaysia. The celebrations themed Menjana Transformasi (Generating Trans­formation) will be launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Malaysia Day is significant to Malaysians as they commemorate the establishment of the Malaysian federation on Sept 16, 1963. It was a day where Malaya (peninsular Malaysia), North Borneo (Sabah), Sarawak, and Singapore formed Malaysia. However Singapore left the federation and declared as an independent republic on August 9, 1965.

For the forthcoming celebrations, visitors to the Semarak Hall located on the 11th floor of Wisma Dang Bandang (near Padang Merdeka) can witness a patriotic choir competition from 10:00am onwards, while those interested in exploring the Independence Day Exhibition can visit the Kota Kinabalu Community Hall at the same time. The celebrations will continue from 4:00pm to 11:00pm at the Padang Merdeka. Colourful cultural performances, fireworks display, musical theater extravaganza, and stage presentation by various local artistes will be among the highlights of the celebrations.
