Rasa Sayang= Are You Not Feeling the Love?

Posted: October 2, 2007 in Malaysia, Society

Especially after the great Rasa Sayang Campaign. Are you not feeling the love? Obviously Indonesia isn’t! Malaysia-Indonesia ties have not been exactly smooth sailing of late..with the Karate kid issue and now this..what more….emmm

According to theJakartapost, the government of Indonesia has been urged by the House of Representatives member Hakam Naja of the National Mandate Party(PAN) to check the origin of the song as it is an Indonesian song,

So its much more serious than I anticipated I guess.What will happen I wonder? With so many other elements of culture to put forward to the world I wonder why Rasa Sayang was chosen..hmmm…Well first with Namewee the issue of Negaraku being of a ciplak-ted version of Mamula Moon was raised(true or not I will leave it up to you to decide but after listening to the song Mamula Moon, it sounds so identical, the tune …)

(From Malaysian blogger in Jakarta called Unspun)
