Merdeka August 31,2007 - A daring one!

I have always like ads fr Petronas. Be it Hari Raya, Chinese New Yr, Deepavali or Merdeka.

This year, they came out with yet another ad that carries a very strong message and I mus say a very daring one indeed. There is a saying that goes, "If you give a man a fish, he will eat for a day so instead, teach him how to fish ".

In this new ad, the message is clear. When you are asked to do something, do it properly from the very beginning or the lost is nobody else's but yours to live with.

To my fellow Malaysian, Selamat Hari Merdeka!
