Malaysia, sorry ‘Rasa Sayange’ is not yours!

I have enough with these ignorant people.

Which ignorant people?


They says that Batik is their heritage, they says Angklung is their heritage too. And Now they want to claim the song “Rasa Sayange” that originated from Maluku as their heritage too.


Sorry, those are Indonesian heritage, not yours!

We have too many proves that whatever your claim as yours, that actually ours, Indonesian heritage.

Angklung in Wikipedia

Angklung is a musical instrument made out of two bamboo tubes attached to a bamboo frame. The tubes are carved so that they have a resonant pitch when struck. The two tubes are tuned to octaves. The base of the frame is held with one hand while the other hand shakes the instrument rapidly from side to side. This causes a rapidly repeating note to sound. Thus each of three or more angklung performers in an ensemble will play just one note and together complete melodies are produced. Angklung is popular throughout Southeast Asia, but originated from Indonesia (used and played by the Sundanese since the ancient times).

Batik in wikipedia

Batik (JavaneseIndonesian pronunciation: [?ba.te?], but often, in English, is [?bæt?k] or [b??ti?k]) is an Indonesian word and refers to a generic wax-resist dyeing technique used on textile. The word originates from Javanese word “amba”, meaning ”to write” and the Javanese word for dot or point, “titik.”

It is known to be more than a millennium old, probably originating in ancient Egypt or Sumeria. There is evidence that cloth decorated through some form of resist technique was in use in the early centuries AD.[citation needed] It is found in several countries later in West Africa such as Nigeria, Cameroon and Mali, or in Asia, such as India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh , Iran, Thailand, and Malaysia, but the most popular are in Indonesia.

What are your proves? None.

Even the language you use, your daily language, your malay language, it’s came from Indonesia.

Old Malay in Wikipedia

The oldest dated 682 CE, is the Kedukan Bukit Inscription found near Palembang, and several other inscriptions dating from 7th to 9th centuries have been found in Sumatra, western Java, Luzon, Manila and others. These ancient texts are considered examples of ‘Old Malay’ or ‘Early Malay’. All these inscriptions were in the form of Indian Pallava script, characterized by extensive Sanskrit loan words, it lasted until 17th century.

Even they pop stars now, is using Indonesian song.

Grow up Malaysia!

The truth is, you don’t have any heritages. You use ours heritage since Sriwijaya and Majapahit occupied you. You adopted ours heritage, and still now. Worst part is, you start to claim them.

Once again, they are NOT yours!

Maybe we have a weak goverment, who can’t stand up for our heritages.

But maybe, our goverment is just too busy to handle these ‘little stuffs’ where they should need to focus on our economy.

But stealing our heritage is not your rights.

Start create your own heritage, and stop stealing them from others.
