DEFINING OURSELVES

We are the people of spice archipalego
That stretched from the northern tip of Borneo
To the southern most tip of main land Asia

We are the people of passion
Those whose Gamelan already embraced arpeggio
Before the Gregorian created music

We are the people with heart
The advocate of family values
Intertwined with multicultural heritage

We are the people with great taste
Where chillies are sweet to our lips
And rice is cooked in coconut milk

We are the people that subscribe aesthetic values
Our batik depicts graceful talent
Our songket defines luxury

We are the people with history
Of ancient Melaka entrepot saga
That gravitates eastern and western traders

We are the dwellers of nature's best selection
The majestic tropical rain forest
Embroided with magnificent animal kingdom

We are the people of a proud nation
One with the tallest twin towers
And the most beautiful islands known

We are the people of significant wealth
From spices to agricultural produce
To oil and manufacturing industries

We are who we are....
Calling ourselves Malaysian
In the most dignified manner
