My kids came home from school on Friday with the Malaysian flag and was very proud of it. All week they've been working on Merdeka related theme in school. Their teacher had whatsapp'ed me the photo above and I love it.
Last night, I saw a clip of Tunku Abdul Rahman and a short clip about Merdeka. It brought me to tears. I am proud to be Malaysian and sometimes, I am guilty for taking this country I love for granted.
I need to give back to my society and my country. I still haven't figured it out yet but I know I will. I was watching a show on Astro about how Tiara Jacquelina and how she gave back to the society by producing film and theatre that has Malaysian value and I thought to myself, I should too. She's amazingly beautiful and very passionate about her work and very inspiring too.
For this Merdeka, I decided to give my customers an extra discount. I thought hard about this as I wanted it to mean something and not just to have a sale for the sake of having one. I'm giving 31% discount on all my ready stock items. I've got very limited pieces. If you're interested, please email mykupukupustudio @ gmail.com and let us know what size you are looking for. We will then tell you what's available on offer. Offer is valid until end of today but I will extend this offer till 3 Sept for my blog readers. Hope you find something you like from my little store!
I am also clearing out stock to make way for my new collection. Hopefully that will be out in the next couple of weeks.
I hope this is me doing my little bit to celebrate Merdeka. Perhaps next year I will find a better way to celebrate and give more.
