Chapter 233 - Love & Hate

Happy Belated birthday Malaysia.. Already 52 years young. A lot of changes occurred in these 52 years. Ratusan malah ribuan bangunan yang mencakar langit. Lebuhraya dan jalan bertingkat-tingkat mengalahkan mangkuk tingkat. Pernah bertahkta kepertuanan langit dengan 2 menara tertinggi di dunia. Seri dgn neon malam bagaikan kota New York yang tidak pernah tidur. Hak dan rukun dicabar terang2an. keamanan dan kesusilaan yg dijaga mahu dengan lembut ataupon kasar.. serta, melayu dengan dilema mereka.

Not all malay engrossed in their dilemma.

I caught this promo on TV asking viewers to vote for the best 1Malaysia song through sms. after awhile, i read that Faizal Tahir won it. who cares? and seems like everyone doesn't also. xpernah pulak dengar berkumandang di corong radio mahupon TV. i just wondered, why need to hassle organizing such contest while there are already good songs out there. take this one in particular, a song by Allahyarham TS P.Ramlee, Keroncong Kuala Lumpur. This person is truly a nasionalist, without further intoduction, everyone knows him through his marvellous acting, directing and singing. Orang mengangkat Allahyarham(ah) Yasmin Ahmad sebagai pejuang 1Malaysia (with no doubt on my side), sedangkan TS P Ramlee was one, decades ago. not just through this song, but through his movies. jika dinilai perspektif satira2nya, tersorot ribuan paparan realiti bangsa; tanpa mengenal kaum walaupon kebanyakan karyanya berkisar tentang melayu (jika dibandingkan dengan garapan Yasmin). lagu keroncong ini juga dapat diperkenalkan kepada telinga anak2 muda yang mungkin kurang biasa dengan keroncong, zapin dan dondang.

Keroncong Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur
ibu negara Malaysia
aman serta makmur
setelah merdeka

tanah subur
hasilnya kaya raya
jadi kebanggaan
kejayaan bangsa

rakyat sehati sejiwa
satu bahsa satu bangsa
tanda kegagahan negara
Malaysia merdeka

waktu malam
cahya menjulang tinggi
Parlimen tersergam
lambang demokrasi
