The PM's wife says the Hibiscus deserves a revival as a symbol of Malaysian patriotism.
I agree with Jean. Most of us like the bunga raya, so much so that we have added the stigma of the hibiscus in the logo of the Alliance of Bloggers! (The stigma also represents the computer keyboard).
So, yes, as long as it does not involve a multi-million ringgit campaign and contracts to enable cronies to organize a national hibiscus awareness drive or something like that, do promote this flower!
