How Malaysian Am I? Part 2

(Referring to previous post)

OK.... so now I'm officially 47% UNMALAYSIAN according to Kenny Sia. The verdict is out and I'm as Malaysian as Michelle Yeoh, which means that I'm as patriotic as going all out to persuade my lifetime partner to PURCHASE an ISLAND in my own home country, and refusing to become a typical "flower vase" in an international sexist movie franchise with a gwai-lo hero (which coincidentally what my partner is)! How about that? Not as bad right? SO, am I patriotic?

As I am writing this, I'm wondering why there's only one house with the Sabah and Malaysia state flag flying along the stretch of the street I'm staying now? I'm also wondering why the so-called favourite child of the nation can blurt out something insensitive to the other "less-majority" ethnic group only being blamed for his youth and inexperience while another decent local actress who chose to speak in a so-called colonist language was being blasted with accusation of being unpatriotic, menderhaka etc etc.......

Also I'm puzzled by the fact that the police forces, who claimed that they were seriously understaffed, still afford to send some troupes to attend the "super-wedding" of the year of our local songstress while the streets and cities were traumatically attacked by hordes of snatch thieves and other criminals. Not forget to mention the never-ending mind-blowing feats of records breaking which consists of acts such as, "the event where most people danced", "the biggest Malaysian flag made by 10 cent coins, used newspaper, beads etc etc......"

With only around 4 more days around, I wish Malaysia a 43th birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (For those who object, please get back your Sejarah textbook and search for the year when Malaysia was formed)

How Malaysian Am I?

Congratulations Tan Cher Kian, you are 47% not Malaysian.

That means you're as Malaysian as...

Michelle Yeoh!

How Un-Malaysian Are You?

Home - Michael Buble
Another summer day
Has come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home
Maybe surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh I miss you, you know
And I’ve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but I know that it’s just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that
Another aeroplane
Another sunny place
I’m lucky I know
But I wanna go home
Mmmm, I’ve got to go home
Let me go home
I’m just too far from where you are
I wanna come home
And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life
It’s like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
But this was not your dream
But you always believe in me
Another winter day has come
And gone away
And even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go home
Let me go home
And I’m surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel alone
Oh, let go home
Oh, I miss you, you know
Let me go home
’ve had my run
Baby, I’m done
I gotta go home
Let me go home
It will all right
I’ll be home tonight
I’m coming back home
Remember I heard the song for the first time over the radio while driving and snap.... love it straight away. Buble was more known to sing the American standard and I think Home is his first original tune and being away from my hometown working alone in KL at that time seems to seal the relevance to me.
And now watching Buble's show in Starworld and heard the song again, after continuous weeks of outstation and some emotional roller coasters events surrounding my rather bland and mundane life, my mind went into working mode again. How should you define your "HOME" now? You can name your shabby shack where you sleep after hours of work as home; some workaholics who feel less homely may call their offices as home; some says it's where their hearts lie in, which for that matter, the heart of their partners; or your family. We work in different places nowadays. We might not be working in where we was born or growing up so that's why we have hometown but then again, where's our home?
Was there a song called Love Should've Brought You Home?
I guess it's where the love is ~ OUR HOME
