PETALING JAYA: No matter where life takes you, home is where the heart is.

As the 60th National Day celebrations approach, more and more Malaysians abroad have gathered with their friends and families there to send their love back home.

Malaysians as far away as the United States, Japan, Senegal, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand are waving the Jalur Gemilang and displaying the #AnakAnakMalaysia2017 poster with pride at foreign landmarks, with Malaysian students at Tacoma Community College sending in a picture from Washington state.

“This is our first time celebrating Malaysia’s Independence Day in another country and we are proud to be Malaysians abroad. Happy 60th Independence Day! No matter how far we go, Malaysia will always be in our hearts,” they told The Star.

Over in Singapore, journalist Yvonne Lim wished the very best for her beloved country as it celebrates six decades of nationhood.

“My heart is never very far from home. Happy Merdeka, my Malaysia. I bring you with me wherever I go,” she added.
