A Smile costs nothing, but gives much.

It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give.

It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,
and none is so poor, but that he can be made rich by it.

A Smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business,
and is the countersign of friendship.

It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
and it is nature’s best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone, until it is given away.

Some people are too tired to give you a smile;
Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

If at times you feel you want to cry
And life seems such a trial

Above the clouds there’s a bright blue sky
So make your tears a smile.

As you travel on life’s way
With its many ups and downs

Remember its quite true to say
One smile is worth a dozen frowns.

Among the worlds expensive things
A smile is very cheap

And when you give a smile away,
You get one back to keep.

Happiness comes at times to all
But sadness comes unbidden

And sometimes a few tears must fall
Among the laughter hidden.

So when friends have sadness on their face
And troubles round them piled

The world will seem a better place
And all because you smiled.

Today is the 46th anniversary of the formation of Malaysia. Malaysia Day is held on every September 16 to commemorate the establishment of Malaysian federation on the same date in 1963. It marked the joining together of Malaya, Singapore, Sarawak and North Borneo to form Malaysia. The formation of the new federation was planned to occur on June 1, 1963, but was later postponed to August 31, 1963, in order to coincide with the sixth Hari Merdeka (Independence Day). Several issues related to the Indonesian and the Filipino objection to the formation of Malaysia delayed the declaration to September 16 of the same year. The postponement was also done to allow the United Nations team time to conduct referendums in North Borneo (now known as Sabah) and Sarawak regarding the two states participation in a new federation.

Distrust and ideological differences between leaders of the State of Singapore and the federal government of Malaysia resulted in frequent disagreement in politics, economic, financial and social policies. On August 9 1965, the Malaysian parliament voted to expel Singapore from Malaysia. On that fateful day, Singapore became a new nation with Lee Kuan Yew as its prime minister.

To all Malaysians, I wish you Happy Malaysia Day!
