Festive gratitude for road & railway builders

Malaysians and also many relatives and friends from Singapore have already begun the festive Balik Kampung journeys in air-conditioned cars. Let us be forever thankful to the early road ( and also railway ) builders, who laboured under the red hot sun in the late 19 and early 20 'century to construct the first modern networks of transportation. Our teens and youths should be educated' to appreciate the supreme value of human labour in the transformation of our cherished nation through, among other productive activities on earth, the building of roads and railways' and tough works in tin mines and rubber estates.
