Rasa Sayang atau Benci? The MALINDO factor.

I just don't know why the heck we have morons in government , both here in Malaysia and across the Straits of Malacca in Indonesia?

If we are to reflect on the wordings of Rasa Sayang , it is meant to reflect 'Feeling Love'. That's it.

Doesn't make no difference whether the theme song of our Ministry of Tourism now has its roots here or over there in Indonesia?

As usual, we have clowns both here in the Malaysian Peninsular and over there in Jakarta blowing hot and cold over an issue that is simply stupid and unwarranted.

Try to come to terms that we are all from the same region and we share similarities in culture and social habits.

So what if we share the same songs? Even Dick Lee sings a rap version of 'Rasa Sayang' in Singapore and acknowledges it to be a Malaysian folk song!

Malaysian or Indonesian, it doesn't matter. We are all from the same 'Rumpun Nusantara' aren't we?

There is so much to gain and nothing to lose if we complement each other with the sharing of traditions and good values by emulating good useful pursuits such as giving true meaning and life to the disputed song by putting it to practice instead of engaging in petty quarrels over the ownership of the said song?

Has anyone patented the particular folk song?

Come on! Show proof of ownership and get back to work!

'There's so much more better things to do like swindling away billions and millions in the name of development!'

We the people won't fall for your petty distractions!

As if both nations got nothing better to do?

Stop wasting our time and resources by bullshitting about a bloody song for God's Sake!

We have poor people suffering in both countries and risking limb and life in trying to make a living and here we have moronus maximus trying to create a storm in a bloody teacup!

What a load of crap we have for ministers both sides of the straits! Wise up guys!

Both Malaysia and Indonesia could do better and try to compete with Singapore in improving life for their respective citizens and race against each other to be on par with the island republic in all areas, don't you think so?

Rasa Sayang?

Dah benci kot... tee hee hee...

The suit will not be liable. Rasa Sayang is a folk song.

Traditional folk songs are under public domain such as those European classical music by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart etc.

Even, a lady by the name of Rebecca Pan sung an Indonesian song back then in the 50s - 60s

The title of the Anglicised lyrics traditional song is Bengawan Solo?. Francis Yip sung many folk songs to survive back then too.

So, what now? Singapore has to copyright Geylang Si Paku Geylang and Di Tanjong Katong?

Come on, give me a break.. hehehe

You hit it right bro!

There's just too many petty distractions that they try to pull off on the people right now!

Know why?

We have serious issues like the Altantuya submarine deal gone wrong murder case dragged on and yet have many of the witnesses and evidences disregarded.

We have had our Malaysian Bar Council plus 2000 over lawyers march in protest about the judicial farce we have going on in our nation where I participated as well.

We have the VK Lingam Fix u up case being played footsie with a toothless panel -'pun intended'.

We have the Nurin murder case being volleyed back and forth with no concrete build up to the case.

We have the missing documents of the Naval kickback case slowly being delegated to the archives without conclusive prosecution work by the AG.

I can keep going on but you must have got my drift now.
