45 years ago today, the Union Jack was lowered for the last time in Sarawak and the British handed over the leadership of the state to its people. Chief Minister Taib Mahmud was there then and he is there at the State Stadium in Petra Jaya tonight for the launch of the year-long celebration.
In local lingo, Taib's longevity is called "tahan wujud", a blogger tells me.
Happy Birthday, Sarawak.
