Chong Wei has achieved so much but he just couldnt win a major event. But I believe he can win at least one ma-jor title before he re-tires, said Seu Bock.His hunger to win a major has only grown stronger and there are two world championships and the Asian Games for him to fulfil his dream.His chances will in-crease not because Lin Dan may decide to retire this year but his own desire and
determination is to end his career as a world champion.However, the chal-lenge will still be stiff with the young-er players testing Chong Wei and he must be prepared.There must be ad-justments as he is getting older which means there is the risk of injuries.But if he can stay injury-free, there is a chance.

NATIONAL SPIRITMerdeka is about unity
SINCE Malaysia obtained in-dependence from the British 55 years ago, Malaysia has developed and progressed tremen-dously, both politically and socio-economically, and is today one of the most advanced, peaceful and prosperous nations in the world.
Like all countries, we, too, have had our ups and downs in our struggle for a better nation.Fortunately and thankfully, the country has been blessed with a good and responsi-ble government that is peace-loving and forward-thinking.This, in a way, was greatly influenced by the spirit of oneness and brotherhood of the nations founding fathers: Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Tan Cheng Lock and Tun V.T. Sambanthan.
In setting the nation free, our forefathers wanted the peo-ple to be truly independent, free, happy and successful.They wanted us to excel and to love, help and protect each other in good times or bad, realise our potential and raise the country to greater heights.As loyal and re-sponsible citizens, we must live up to their legacy and fulfil the origi-nal Merdeka spirit.It is the Muhi-bah spirit among us that paved the way for a new nation that belongs
to all races. All Ma-laysians can and must play a role in nation-building.
We must make sure we never take the nations peace, stability and pros-perity for granted.We must continue to work together to boost unity and improve race rela-tions.When we re-member and cele-
brate Merdeka Day, the spirit of patriotism appears naturally.Being patriotic means loving and serving ones country in the best manner. It does not just mean waving the Jalur Gemilang, singing Negar-aku, reciting the Rukun Negara or chanting the 1Malaysia slogan.It is the duty and responsibility of all quarters the government, the opposition, the people, politicians, police and security forces to put national interest and well-being above anything else.Malaysia is a democratic country and it is im-portant that its people know how to exercise their rights with re-sponsibility and understanding. The people, especially politicians, public figures and community lead-ers, must agree to disagree, not be overzealous or say and do things that may hurt the nation.Malay-sians must reject violence, abuse of power, corruption, fanaticism, racialism, injustice and prejudice.
National Day is all about national unity and oneness. It is this unity and oneness that will propel the na-tion forward.A multiracial govern-ment must continue to lead the way for national good and success and to prove to the world we are indeed worthy of what the nations found-
ing fathers did 55 years ago.The original Merdeka spirit, the Federal Constitution and the Rukun Negara must be our most cherished guides.

HISTORY, BIO and Crime and I n v e s t i g a t i o n Network cel-ebrates Malaysias 55 years of independence with over 30 programmed lined up from Aug 15 to Sept 12, 2012.AETN All Asia Networks is dedicated to bring-ing the best of human stories to life with a wide range of top quality, award-winning program-ming. As part of our continuous efforts to profile Malaysia to the world, AETN will be show-casing the countrys rich and diverse cul-ture in August in conjunction with the 55th Independence Day. Viewers can catch this spectacular line-up of programmes across our three channels: History, BIO and Crime and Investigation Network , said Louis Boswell, general manager of AETN All Asia Networks.History will capture the countrys diversity and rich culture with three brand new pro-grammes, kick-starting with 1941: The Fall Of Penang premiering on History (Astro Chan-nel 555) on Aug 19 at 10 pm. The hour-long documentary goes back to the early morn-ing of Sept 11, 1941, when Penang, a two-century old British Fortress of the Far East and once known as The Paradise Island, was bombed by the Imperial Japanese Air Force.Up to that point, Penang was a flourishing port connecting Southeast Asia to the Indian Ocean and there was a false sense of security. When the enemy planes did come, residents crowded the
streets, unaware of what was about to happen. As the Jap-anese terror unleashed itself on the local popula-tion, Penang was abandoned by British Forces.This is followed by Last Journey to Sara-wak on Aug 26 at 10pm. This is a story about
forgotten heroes. Today, many unmarked graves of Iban trackers can be found there. Nameless and
faceless, these fallen warriors had never been given the proper burial they deserved.During his active service in the Malaysian army, Robert Rizals mission was to seek and elimi-nate the communist terrorists. Today hes re-tired and has an entirely different mission to give these courageous fighters a proper burial.Despite their contribution to the nations se-curity, Rizal believes the sacrifices of the Iban trackers and Sarawak rangers have almost been forgotten. For some of the families and relatives of the fallen heroes, their last contact was before they left for Malaya 60 years ago.Last Journey to Sarawak follows the work of Rizal, local ranger regiments, the police and medical personnel as they repatriate the re-mains of 21 Iban trackers and Sarawak rang-ers back to Sarawak for burial in Kuching.
Special Forces: Malaysia GGK a special one-hour documentary will premiere on Sept 2 at 10 pm. Malaysias Grup Gerak Khai (GGK) was the first on the ground behind enemy lines. They gained fame and recognition worldwide after success-fully beating communist rebels in the 1960s in battles fought deep in the Malaysian rain forests.Toughened by one of the worlds most diffi-cult training regimes, GGK commandos are trained to infiltrate enemy held territory via air, sea or land. They are experts in unconven-tional warfare, including sabotage, counter-terrorism and intelligence gathering. But what makes them stand out is their ability to fight in some of the worlds harshest jungles. To earn the coveted Green Beret, recruits must go through three months relentless physical and psychological torture that will push them to their absolute limits and break all but the best.
