Here In My Home

This is one of the reasons I am proud to call myself a Malaysian.
What is all this about?

It is about LOVE.
The LOVE we all have for Malaysia.
Though I cannot deny the fact that there are many shortcomings within the nation back home, but I am quite sure that it will be hard for many to disagree with the fact that there is no other place that is better than Malaysia. Where will you find another place which is blessed with such a great diversity in cultures, religions, beliefs and of course, the food. For more than a year living in oversea, I have gone through quite a number of experiences and encounters, which sometimes make me comparing what they have in their countries with our country. However at the end of the day, I will realise that no matter where I was, my heart will always be at one place, my homeland.
I won't go any further discussing about the unity among the races in the country in this entry, because I believe that the lyrics in the music video above has already given a true reflection how we should live together happily in a harmonious atmosphere under one roof. That prompted 52 people, all coming from different backgrounds that included filmmakers, dancers, singers, producers, musicians, actors, entrepreneurs, designers, footballers, activists, celebrities, students and a florist to gather and record the song above. They did it without being paid and this is a budget free non-profit effort by Malaysian Artistes For Unity. Read here for more details.
I honestly think that this song is not bad at all and I hope you can help the project team to spread this around. Terima kasih ;)

@ kokahkok:
there is no way i will be featured in the video because there will only be one outcome if that happens - seven consecutive days of non-stop rain. but actually it's good because i heard it is really hot in malaysia at the moment.

anyway, perhaps one day we the bloggers could come out with a similar thing and we shall call ourselves "Malaysian Bloggers For Unity" ;)

@ michelleg:
yup, i guess this is a great effort made by malaysians for malaysians :)

@ kevin tan:
horr, you are not patriotic!!

i didn’t say it is the best song you will ever come across, but it is the readiness for well-acclaimed artistes to sit down and come out with such project that matters the most ;)

@ chwk87:
you can live in countless countries, you can travel to everywhere around the world, you can get to taste different kinds of food from other places and cultures, but you will realise that there will only be one home in your heart, and that would be malaysia :)
