Merdeka and Malaysia Day is a time to remember how far our country has come. We hope these shows will fill your hearts with pride for our country.

Kenduri Hari Merdeka

Hana's wedding date happens to fall on Merdeka Day. Her very patriotic father wants her to hold a Merdeka-themed ceremony but Hana wants an ocean-themed ceremony instead.

A three-member committee is then formed to come up with a wedding that combines both themes. Will they be able to pull it off? The telemovie stars Ashraf Muslim, Azar Azmi and Lia Natalia.

Kenduri Hari Merdeka airs on Aug 31 at 2pm on TV3.

A House Of Happiness

This patriotic month is a time for unity. That's something the lead characters of A House Of Happiness are still learning to do when we first meet them.

The Malaysian film opens with two senior citizens who are always at each other’s throats – the temperamental Uncle Shui, who has Alzheimer’s disease, and Auntie Ha, his patient caregiver.

One day, she decides she won’t have any of it anymore and leaves him. Will the two reunite? The cast includes Hong Kong stars Richard Ng and Mimi Chu and 988 deejay Chan Fong.

A House Of Happiness is available on Dimsum Entertainment.
