Then suddenly, the 'dream' seems a lil less appealing or too difficult to achieve. And the question of giving up arise?
Well, as inspiring as I want to be, I face that sometimes. And most recent in the 50+1 Malaysia project. On paper, the idea seems beautiful - promote Malaysia, promote Malaysians & unite us together. But the workload of content, interviews & sponsors can blur that ideal dream/ image. So instead of seeing the end, at times, I see the problems instead.
What Am I Saying?
Believe me, this question has arised a couple of times when the burden becomes very heavy & when the head is stuck in mid-air (no clue what to do!). Of course, not one to give up easily, but I hear those devil voices.
Some of you have been very encouraging on the book project & that actually allows me to re-focus on the objective and get back on track. Thank you :)
So in the midsts of all these, when blurriness meet reality and dreams, I was recently 'awaken' by a new Malaysian song - uniting Malaysians.
Some of you will know by now how much I support our local acts (Singapore included) and especially if it brings the nation together. And usually these are inspiring songs - Gemilang, Melodi, Olimpik Di Beijing.
And now, rather out of the blue, Pete Teo, an independent singer-composer-actor has worked together with the Malaysian artists on a song to unite Malaysia (some like Afdlin Shauki, Ning Baizura, Daniel Lee, Maya Karin are featured as the 50+1 Malaysians).
I saw it premiered on AIM about 2 weeks back and was eager to see the music video as I find it very similar in a way to my project, but this is in music rather than print. Way to go!
So without much further ado, here is the song Here In My Home - Malaysia:
