Rasa Sayang Nonsense

I guess each Cabinet will have its own entertainer; otherwise life would be quite boring.

In days of old we had the court jester, the clown who would try to keep the king or emperor amused. If the clown was not good then "OFF with his head!"

So the Indonesian President has come to discuss some common issues with Malaysia; perhaps he also gave some tips on how to stay alert to our PM on the numerous issues that have been piling up.

Of course one of the subjects has been that contentious song "Rasa Sayang" that most older Malaysians would have learned.

Now if this song "belongs to both" why do we need to inform anyone if it is used?

That is a diplomatic way ...

Implicitly, Indonesian minister want to say that Rasa Sayange is a folksong originated from Indonesia, If Malaysia want to us it for its tourism campaign, Malaysia has to get consent from Indonesia ...
