Malaysian Artistes for Unity......

______________________

Akhyari ,
a blogger from Indonesia
once replied to me that
he thought the Philippines
was out of the Southeast
Asian Radar.
Somewhat true.
It's not just the animosity
of our people about other
countries
in the region but also
about the regions
perception
the we are different
from the rest of them.

_________________________

It doesn't end there. A lot of us don't know much
about our SE Asian brothers and vice-versa. Oh, they look like us is the only remark that you can get from ordinary folks in the Philippines.Blogging changed all of that for me. It opened opportunities to meet people from Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia in particular.



We have been bragging about our Filipino singers here and abroad. They are good. No doubt. Little do we know of singers in our region though. Thanks to ZARA, I got a sample of what MALAYSIAN SINGERS are made of........

This is the song from Malaysian Artistes for Unity and the song HERE IN MY HOME is all about....

Hold on brother hold on
The road is long.
We’re on stony ground
But I’m strong.
You ain’t heavy

Oh there’s a misspoken truth
that lies Colors don’t bind, oh no.
What do they know?
They speak falsely.

Chorus
Here in my home
I’ll tell you what its all about
There’s just one hope here in my heart
One love undivided
That’s what it’s all about
Please won’t you fall in one
by one by one with me?

  7. Melandre----perhaps because of geography. The cluster that was Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia is something which made those countries, culturally, historically, religiously closely linked.....

    not to metion the other cluster, Vietnam, Cambodia Laos, And again, Thailand. We were alone here in this part of Southeast Asia. And we are Christians too. I don't like the idea of having religion as a dividing force. I don't mean it that way, but it really has really shaped us in a different way.....

  12. Zara---we are the citizen, so that is the meaning of that. Thanks again. And I think I also believe in the message of the song.

    Arry---thanks Arry. I know that. we can feel it. I donno how many times I have told you also, I feel for Indonesia more than any other country in SEA. I donno why, it's just the feeling I have. Not that I hate the others of coarse.peace to all.

  14. Joshmarie--what are you waiting for. Time to meet some again.

    Falcon---this is very strange. I thought it was a generic song in your country. Is it your first time to hear it here? If so, you owe me one I guess...keke

  15. The internet has truly made this world smaller.

    My staff actually thought before that the Philippines is part of china. lol. The easiest way to describe to them where RP is located, is to say it's near China/HK.

  16. but now, Phils is most recognized as "country of Manny Pacquiao".. (nun ngtravel kame, eto napansin namen. haha)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think it's because the Philippines is separated by the sea from the other SEA countries...And maybe because we are the only Christian nation in SEA.

    ReplyDelete
  18. we are all same same but different... hehehe.

    at least here in cambodia, people here refer to the philippins as the land of jericho rosales and kristine hermosa (it's so unbelievable how popular they are here!) but the good thing is, they believe that all filipinos look like them! hahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Kris---since you have a good following there, why not bring them to the Philippines so that they can see what we have here. Kelan kaba huling nagbakasyun?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Chyng---ganun pala perception nung pumunta kayo HK. interesting.

    Denis---nice analogy. I think so too.
