May 9th: Malaysia Made History and Memes

(Source: The Sun Daily, Asyraf Rashid)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you would know that Malaysia made groundbreaking history last Wednesday. The country went through a political revolution by overthrowing the long-dominating ruling party while Tun Dr Mahathir became the world’s oldest elected leader at 92. Seriously though, what is his skin care routine? 92 and the 7th elected Prime Minister, I don’t think anybody is ever allowed to complain about being tired or lazy ever again. Tun Mahathir DID THAT.

This year it was revealed that 41% of votes came from the 21-39 age bracket. The youth came out in droves to vote, but not without making a few memes. This is Malaysian millennial culture at its best.
