REDISCOVERING the colours of
by THE ROJAK PROJEK, Malaysians & people who love Malaysia.
#RojakNation, a movement that advocates Malaysia's multicultural identity and seeks to bring together everything that makes Malaysia, Malaysia.
Having recently travelled around Malaysia, we realised we still don't know a lot about each other and our diverse culture. Perhaps it's now time for us rediscover each other. We believe our generation has its part to play in bridging the gaps that exist within our Malaysian society. Thus, the purpose of the movement is to inspire and encourage Malaysians to take the initiative to mix around and collaborate with each other in ways that lend a voice to unheard, underrepresented fellow Malaysians. It is our hope that #RojakNation will one day evolve into a larger, national scale nation-building movement.
Tunku Abdul Rahman once said, “We must each always think first of Malaysia, of the national need and least of ourselves… Everyone must try to help and see that the people are one-minded, with loyalty and one aim, to make Malaysia – the land we love – a happy abode for all of us. If we all do this then we can guarantee liberty, security, prosperity and happiness for the future."
For THE ROJAK PROJEK, the ultimate aim is to overcome ignorance and help our nation to know each other better. Being a Malaysian means ALL OF US, TOGETHER. If we can name three races in Malaysia, why can’t we name them all (including those who are of mixed race)? We believe it is time for our generation to take it to the next level in rediscovering and getting to know our Malaysian people better.
Malaysia tak sama, kalau kita tak bersama.
Malaysia is never the same if we are not together.
