Yes, That's what people say today: Sekali Merdeka Tetap Merdeka Tetapi Tetap Tak Madjoe-Madjoe.
It's so sad, it's been 61 years but situation don't get much better.
Yes, there're lot more tall buildings, cars, cellphones, modern shopping malls... ... ...
This had been mentioned before. Now, Indonesia only leave with these words,
"Padahal"; "Sebenarnja"; "Seharoesnja".
Ex. Why Malaysia Petronas can open gas stations in Indonesia, "Padahal" Malaysia used to learn from Indonesia?
"Seharoesnja" Indonesia should open gas stations in Malaysia, because Indonesia used to be their teachers; Yes, "Sebenarnja" haroes begitoe.
Ex. A lot of music instruments are branded with foreign brands, "Sebenarnja" banjak jang boeatan dari Indonesia. "Seharoesnja" Indonesian no need to buy foreign branded goods. But demi gagah, what to do?
Must admit, a lot of Indonesian don't care so much anymore about today' Hari Kemerdekaan.
Indonesians used to be very proud to be an Indonesian but it's getting less now.
Indonesia only has "Padahal"; "Sebenarnja"; "Seharoesnja" and no more else.
Yes, Sekali Merdeka Tetap Merdeka dan Tetap Madjoe Teroes. (Haroesnja begitoe dong!)
Merdeka Tetapi Tak Madjoe, Oentoek Apa?
Forget about "Pada..."; "Sehar..."; Seben...". For sure, Indonesia can be one of The Best Nation of the world.
