What is Merdeka to you? 65 years after gaining the sacred independence from the British, we have come a long way and so many things have been achieved by us. As a unique country that has been the melting pot of races, religions and religions, we have overcome the hardest challenges over the years and stand tall against others time and time again. Nothing can rob away the freedom, spirit and unity that we have been experiencing all over these years so let’s get into the details of what Merdeka is and what has kept us steady in the journey for long.
After several decades of Merdeka, it is no surprise to learn that it carries lots of different meanings these days. Regardless of our identities, we have always come together and done our best in bringing up Malaysia to where it is now, the same can be said with its definitions. But all in all, our unique traits are what make the Merdeka more meaningful to us.
Malaysians and their unique traits can never be separated. Going beyond the limit, pursuing the extraordinary and beating all the odds, is what makes us amazing - and nothing can tear us apart from loving the country that we are proud of. But what makes an ordinary Malaysian, extraordinary in the eyes of the world? We have been known throughout the world for our priceless and unique traits. Our obsession with the things we love, for example, food. Our acts of generosity towards one another. Our passion is to push against stereotypes and social conventions. Our love for tradition and modernity. Our perseverance to prove ourselves against all odds. We are known for all that. The list goes on and thanks to our distinctive traits, we can set ourselves apart from the rest of the world.
With that in mind, OPPO is celebrating the 65th Independence Day of Malaysia by releasing an exclusive Merdeka video, Traits in Portraits. A work of art that aims to pay homage to local heroes, it looks to hit the right note with an accurate portrayal of the fearless yet gentle traits of Malaysians.
Several prominent names have been selected to be part of this commemoration of our unique traits that are shot in a Portrait Expert - Reno8 Series 5G. From the ever resilience mountaineer Ravi Everest who aims to reach the summit of 14 peaks of the world’s highest mountains in the next three years; followed by the charitable Abang Viva that made his name during the flood disaster by volunteering to aid victims, armed only with courage and a big heart despite limited resources to the awe-inspiring para-athlete Muhammad Afiq who showcased immense determination and gave his best performance at the recent 2022 Commonwealth Games. The video shows a perfect blend of distinctive characteristics that every normal Malaysian possess, resonating with OPPO’s brand proposition – “Inspiration Ahead”. Mirroring each of the powerful personalities, OPPO is all about empowering people who are not afraid to take on challenges.
OPPO is always optimistic and confident about its own future, and it is shown through Inspiration Ahead.
