National Day is the time of year when we come together to celebrate our beautiful country and the amazing heroes that make us proud to be Malaysian
This year we've celebrated incredible people like Kuan Chee Heng, a social activist who helps the poor and needy in Malaysia. Already known for initiatives such as 'Ambulance 10 Sen', 'Pasar 10 Sen', 'Teksi 10 Sen', and 'RM1 House', Kuan introduced yet another important service to help the less fortunate. In April, he started a service to help transport the deceased for just RM1.
He was most recently spotted collecting and donating toys to sick children in hospitals <3
Meanwhile, we watched in awe when a viral video surfaced of Zaidi Salleh, a 52-year old auxiliary policeman who saved a woman after a suicide attempt at the Penang Bridge. The father of three jumped into the water and held the woman afloat for 20 minutes until help arrived.
On a global scale, two Malaysians became national heroes when they overcame the odds and qualified for the 2018 Winter Olympics. Jeffrey Webb is the first Malaysian to qualify for alpine skiing and Julian Yee is the first Malaysian to qualify for figure skating.
