Daun sirih di dalam dulang,
Menjadi hantaran majlis beradat,
Rakyat dibela pemimpin dijulang,
Malaysia merdeka kekal berdaulat.
Jalur Gemilang bendera negara,
Tanda Malaysia negara merdeka,
Sambutan kemerdekaan besar ertinya,
Jangan dinodai dosa dan noda.
Our Hari Malaysia celebration came to a conclusion with all attending singing to the tune of ‘Keluarga Malaysia’.
Bersama bangunkan semula,
Hatimu hapuskanlah kebencian.
Zahirkan impian bersama,
Semangat yang bernama keluarga Malaysia.
We thank all Keluarga Boustead Plantations for your participation in this simple yet meaningful celebration! We are all proud Malaysians!
