4 Creative Ways to Celebrate Independence Day In Style

by | Aug 28, 2020 | How To, Inspiration

It’s that special time of the month again -where Malaysians from all walks of life come together to commemorate Independence Day. Every year on the 31st of August, many of our Malaysians hit the streets with flags-participating in parades and smaller events to express their patriotism and intense love for country!
Unfortunately this year, the Merdeka celebration will be a little different, as we have to be in line with the country’s new norms to prevent COVID-19. There will be no marches, no mass gatherings at Dataran Merdeka and no outdoor celebrations.
But that shouldn’t be a reason to dampen our spirit. As a true Malaysians, the spirit of Merdeka should live in our hearts and minds no matter where we are. The sacrifices that the older generation made to develop Malaysia into what it is today must not be forgotten.
Hence, to help you enliven your Merdeka spirit and celebrate our National Day with a lot of joy, here are 5 creative ways to celebrate Merdeka Day in style. Read on.

Add Colours Of Merdeka To Your Space

When it comes to Merdeka, one of the most obvious things that our Malaysians often do to show their patriotism is displaying the national flags to their space. Although it is a powerful tool to demonstrate your love of nation, adding something with your personal touch would make a great difference.
Placing flags on your space is not the only thing you can do to lift up your space for Merdeka. Instead, using Merdeka themed decor items can also be a great way to spruce up your space and show off your creativity or uniquenessFor example, you can use Polaroid-style prints with Merdeka themed- whether in terms of colours, flag or hibiscus patterns and anything that represents Merdeka to decorate your space.
Since Polaroid-style prints are quite trendy and versatile in nature, they can be used in many different ways to spruce up your space. For instance, you can make a photo garland, wire mesh board or hang them on a branch.

Show Off With Your Travel Companion

Always on-the-go is a part of your daily activities. Although you can’t join any outdoor celebration for Merdeka- that requires you to be in a crowded area, you might still need to run for some important works.
Hence, staying hydrated is quite important. Instead of carrying a generic plastic bottle which can be mistakenly taken or used by someone else-thinking it’s theirs (which is quite scary during this pandemic). Why not create a personalised tumbler with Merdeka theme. By personalising them, you can make sure no one else touch your tumbler and avoid the problem of losing your tumbler in the crowds of similar-looking bottles.
A personalised tumbler with Merdeka theme will not only make you feel proud of your patriotism for every sip you take using the tumbler but will also make a style statement that is sure to be awe-inspiring to those around you. It is a perfect way to demonstrate your love for the country in style. Apart from that, it can also be a great chance for you to contribute to your country by reducing plastic problems.

Tote-ally In Love With My Country

Aside from carrying or waving an actual flag, carrying a tote bag with a Merdeka theme can be an amazing way to level up your fashion statement. Nowadays many people look at tote-bags as a way of adding beauty, colour, and style into their lives.
Even clothes racks stores are offering stylish clothes as well as trendy tote bags that are both fashionable and functional. So, personalising them with Merdeka theme design will be the best way to show off your sense of patriotism without sacrificing your need to have something fashionable.
Apart from that, just like the tube-tumbler that we have mentioned before, using a tote bag can go a long way in saving the environment- which can be a great contribution to reduce plastic usage. It is something that you can be proud of.

Create a Photo Book to Remind Your Love For Malaysia

If you’re one of those who have a special way to celebrate Merdeka at home with family or you’re someone who has visited all the beautiful places in Malaysia that you would like to share with your family members at your home, you might want to create a photo book.

As you all might know, photo books will not only serve as a reminder of your best moments, but they can also be a  great conversation starter and are perfect for sharing.

So, whether you want to share some exciting stories of the places you’ve visited your kids or simply want to commemorate your memories of last year’s Merdeka celebration. Printing a photo book that you can cherish for years to come is all you need.

Now that you’ve read and got to know some creative ways that you can celebrate this Merdeka Day in style, we hope you’ll have a joyful and extraordinary Merdeka Day.
