Performing the 1Malaysia Song that I Wrote (and my tribute to my country)

Today is 10/10/10, a very unique date, because the number 10 signifies perfection. 10 appearing three times in a date signifies perfect perfection ;-) .

So, I would like to quickly release the first version of the 1Malaysia song that I wrote and composed after I finished my UPSR exam on 23 September.

Here’s the video of me performing the song, titled Kita 1Malaysia. I dedicate this song to our beloved Prime Minister and First Lady who initiated the 1Malaysia spirit, & every Malaysian.

In this video, I am wearing Baju Melayu, a traditional Malay outfit. I also sung the song in Malay because it is our national language.

This is the first version of the song. The complete version of it, sung in Tamil, Mandarin and English, with its instrumental, will be uploaded on 20/10/2010! :)

Here are the lyrics of the song:

Kita 1Malaysia

Malaysia, kita Malaysia, kitalah 1Malaysia,
Malaysia, kita Malaysia, kitalah 1Malaysia

Sejiwa, untuk Malaysia,
Sehati, kita bersama
Tak kira, agama dan bangsa,
Bersatu, kita berjaya

Kita 1Malaysia,
Kita hidup sejahtera
Kita maju ke hadapan,
Kita 1Malaysia

Malaysia, kita Malaysia, kitalah 1Malaysia, 
Malaysia, kita Malaysia, kitalah 1Malaysia

Hormati, dengan penuh nyata,
Diversiti, kegagahan kita,
Hidupkanlah, jiwa 1Malaysia,
Kesatuan, destini kita

(CHORUS) (x3)

Malaysia, kita Malaysia, kitalah 1Malaysia, 
Malaysia, kita Malaysia, kitalah 1Malaysia

Rakyat didahulukan,
pencapaian diutamakan


We Are 1Malaysia

Here are the lyrics translated into English

Malaysia, we are Malaysia, yes we are 1Malaysia,
Malaysia, we are Malaysia, yes we are 1Malaysia

One spirit for Malaysia,
One heart, we will be together,
Not counting religion or race,
United, we are successful.

We are 1Malaysia,
We live in harmony,
We move toward success,
We are 1Malaysia

Malaysia, we are Malaysia, yes we are 1Malaysia,
Malaysia, we are Malaysia, yes we are 1Malaysia

Treat each other with reverence,
Diversity is our strength
Liven up the spirit of 1Malaysia,
Unity is our destiny

(CHORUS) (x3)

Malaysia, we are Malaysia, yes we are 1Malaysia,
Malaysia, we are Malaysia, yes we are 1Malaysia

People first,
Performance now!


There! I hope you like my song! Please come back on 20/10/2010 to watch the complete version of it.*

*Due to unforeseen circumstances, I apologize that the full version is delayed. Still, I’m working on it and I hope to release it as soon as possible! =)

I wrote the song because I would like to express my patriotism and also to share the beauty of my country to the world. My country is made of 3 major races – Malay, Indian, and Chinese. So, we can easily get to know different cultures and religions.

To get to know more about my unique country, you can view my blog post about Malaysia filled with colorful pictures.

The post is about Kuala Lumpur, the “heartbeat” of Malaysia, with modern buildings, landscaped parks, fabulous food, colourful bazaars, multiple cultures-religions-traditions, you name it.

In fact, this blog post is an entry of the Blog4FT contest, in which I won the second place in the Junior category (below 18).

Second from right is Datuk Raja Nong Chik, the Minister of the Federal Territories and Urban-wellbeing, who initiated the contest.

I believe it’s a blessing to talk about the beauty of your own country, because in return, you’ll be blessed one way or another.

My tribute to the Prime Minister and the First Lady of Malaysia

5065533578_58f2db78f5 I got to know more about my country when we got a new Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak. I really admire him because he is a very wise Prime Minister, and handsome too. :)

According to his principles, he wants to make sure that the government achieves a society-centered condition.

He always looks for people’s feedback and participation about his ideas so that he can flash out his best policies for his country.

1malaysia His wisdom and humility inspired him to create the 1Malaysia vision, “People First, Performance Now”.

His Government Transformation Programme (GTP) GTPwill lead our country towards a high-income society towards 2020. With his wisdom and diligence, I believe this GTP program will be a success and bless every rakyat (people) of Malaysia..

“You know that when I make a promise I make sure that it is delivered,”  he said on October 8, in front of a crowd of 13,000 Malaysian Telugus at the 150-year Malaysian Telugu Heritage Celebrations. (source: The Star, 9 Oct 2010, pg N2) My Prime Minister is truly a man with highest capability and humility.

rosmahsummit I also adore my First Lady, Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor, who, to me, is the most beautiful First Lady among all First Ladies in the world. I regard her as the Mother of Love of Malaysia, as she is very focused on children education.

She is the pioneer of the PERMATA Pintar Project, in which she locates gifted children to bring them up in a special school, which is opening next year for gifted teens 15 and above.

Very memorably, last year on 10 July 2009, she took notice of me. So, she and my Prime Minister organized a press release as encouragement and recognition of my talents as a funny poet and a tech blogger.

During the meeting, the Prime Minister read aloud my poem Autumn from my poetry book  Creative & Funny Poetry for Kids, which was published in June 2009. I was very happy that he enjoyed my poem.

I also acted out my poem If I Did Write a Poem, and they enjoyed it and laughed.

(By the way, you can get my poetry book at

This is one of the most memorable events in my life. I really thank my Prime Minister and my First Lady for giving me such appreciation, recognition, and encouragement. =)

And most recently, my First Lady has organized the first ever First Ladies Summit, themed ”A Child Today, A Leader Tomorrow”, which will be attended by First ladies, ministers and special envoys from 31 different countries.

The summit will focusing on issues pertinent to children, such as poverty, domestic violence, stress, lack of parental care, etc.

The purpose of the summit was to discuss the matters above in order to find solutions to  the problems so that

  1. rosmahwithchildrenthe current generation of children will grow up to become good leaders.
  2. the future generation will not have the face the problems mentioned.

You can see that the reason I call her the Mother of Love is because she is really diligent in taking care of issues related to the welfare, especially the education, of children.

Meanwhile, my country’s education system is very advanced. Part of the GTP is the National Key Results Area (NKRA), which aims to provide accessibility to quality education. It focuses on four areas – pre-school education: the literacy and numeracy programme (LINUS); high muhyiddunperformance schools (HPS); and improved performance management of head teachers and principals.

MOE A great thanks to our Minister of Education, Tan Sri Dato’ Muhyiddin Yassin, (who is also the Deputy Prime Minister; left) and his team in MOE for providing quality education for all.

I feel so proud to be a Malaysian  student because our country’s education system is always being updated and upgraded. :)

On 10/10/10, I also gave a special present to the Prime Minister of Malaysia after his speech in MCA (Malaysian Chinese Association). The present is a portrait of him that I drew and a poem of him that I wrote to show my appreciation for his excellence in leading the country and for his birthday.

While I was giving my present to him, I told him that this is my special portrait for him for his birthday. He looked at it and enjoyed it, and jokingly asked me why I drew his moustache all black and his hair all white. Then everybody laughed =P . Haha. Actually, I drew it like that because it makes my Prime Minister look more fun and handsome.

He showed my portrait and poem to the press who were busy photographing him. I found out that the photograph was published in Sin Chew Daily. A big thank you to Sin Chew for acknowledging my gifts. :D

From right to left: MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Deputy MCA President Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, my mom Grace, & me.

Here is the large version of the portrait and the poem.


There! I hope you have enjoyed my song, my tribute to my country, and my portrait and my poem of the Prime Minister! :)

Hope you all readers have a great day! Cheers! =)
