Stop the Perak Drama

there's a lot of hoopla going on back home. drama kings, heroes, jesters and fools all playing their part in a great big political drama. and by home i don't just mean malaysia, but my beloved hometown - perak. people who knows me well would guess which side i'm on - but let me just state for the record - that i really do not mind who reigns in perak, just as long as it stays peaceful and harmony, a quiet little town where i can come back to and feel belonged. where everybody knows your name and some things stay the same.

i hate to read about silly-time-wasting demonstration. so i didn't. did anything happen?

ipoh, a favorite film and ad location for film director yasmin ahmad - has an old charm about it that just soothes me. i have simple needs; a big mall that has everything i need, my awesome school just around the bend - and the food - aw, man -

  • makcik goreng pisang at kampung melayu
  • cendol at ipoh jaya
  • char kuey teow at ipoh parade
  • roti canai medan gopeng
  • laksa at niraku's house
kl is all fun and exciting, but perak is where the heart always is. i would like to dedicate a lovely song about my hometown, to all those anak perak out there. read the lines and remember what we worked for to begin with. no matter which party rocks our boat, let us pray for the best - and let God do the rest.



Perak Darul Ridzuan

Perak Darul Ridzuan
Negeri indah permai
Penduduknya hidup aman damai
Dinaungi keadilan sultan

Kuala Kangsar Bandar Diraja
Iskandariah istana ternama
Tempat bersemayam Baginda Paduka Seri
Menjadi lambang tunggak negeri

Bukit Larut
Waktu malam... berkelipan
Udaranya sejuk nyaman menyegarkan
Indahnya ciptaan Tuhan

Di tengah samudera biru
Pulau Pangkor dengan pantai yang bersih
Tempat bersukaria tumpuan para pelancong
Pemandangan indah yang terbentang

Lihat padi menguning
Menambah seri Daerah Kerian
Di Hilir Perak
Nyiur melambai-lambai
Oh sungguh subur tanah airku

Kinta daerah tengah
Hasilnya bijih timah
Batu Gajah bandar yang bertuah
Tempat keputeraan seri sultan

Hulu Perak nun di utara
Kaya dengan sumber hasil hutannya
tersergam
Empangan tinggi menjulang
Segagah wira di perbatasan

Pasir Salak...
bersejarah dan berdarah
Dato Sagor Dato Maharajalela
Gugur pertahankan bangsa

SITC maktab tertua
Gedung ilmu bakti suluh budiman
Lahirkan cendekiawan
Pejuang bangsa negara
Kekal abadi sepanjang zaman

Perak makmur bahagia
Dengan sembilan daerah yang ada
Betapa indah tanah air tercinta
Sejahteralah Perak oh negeriku
Perak… Perak… oh negeriku.
i know most of you perghok people out there were singing this song along, huh? cammon, admit it! me too!
