Meanwhile, business consultant Syahrir Khairul Udim, 37, took the opportunity to celebrate the independence threshold to spend time with his children and wife, as well as celebrate his country's 62nd birthday.
"We as a family are always on the brink of independence, but this time it's a little special because last year we were living apart.
"This year's celebration of independence has also been felt as the government has changed and Malaysians have the opportunity to experience change," he said.
For civil servant M Elanngovan, 38, this is the first celebration of the independence threshold since 2014 with his family since he was abroad three years ago.
He said that in addition to watching the fireworks and performances, he also wanted to make the occasion an opportunity to make sure his three children understood the meaning of independence.
“Given that there has been some tension between the people, I hope this independence celebration will ease it and we will maintain unity.
"This celebration also proves that our unity is still intact when multicultural people can celebrate together without quarreling and worry," he said.
Private pensioner Mohd Khairuddin Mohd Noor, 58, first saw the fireworks show on the eve of independence with his family at KLCC.
"I hope that in the wake of this independence celebration, the people will remain united and stay away from the strife between the races so that we can live in harmony.
"We do not live in a single race in Malaysia, so before we do something or make a statement, think first about not touching the hearts and sensitivities of other people," he said.
