If someone asks me
What my colors are...
My answer would be
Red
For the blood that was shed
And white
For the bones that were broken
I don't know if anyone disagrees
Or if anyone knew
But that was how my flag was made


~*~Indonesia~*~

Would you be so kind, dear sister
My dear sister Malaysia
To please call me 'akak' again?
Would you be so kind, dear sister
To please stop driving me insane?

Would you please hear me, dear sister
My dear sister Philippines
And come to visit me again?
Would you please hear me, dear sister
And at least contact me?

I've hated you, I've missed you, I've started hating missing you
My dear, dear sisters
I've died without you
I can't go on
Your poor sister is sick
Would you care?

Have you ever loved me?
Or have you just wanted to take advantage of me?
Like all the other nations in the world
Am I truly that alone?

To love
And to be loved back
That is my dream
Have you ever known that?
Or am I just a slave in everyone's eyes?
Even yours?

Is it true?
That Malaysia is the queen,
Philippines the princess,
And I the maid? The lowly servant?

We are not close
Are we?
It's nearly undeniable
It's hard to believe that we are a trio
We are not in sync
We never were
We've only just exited next to each other

Are we still a trio that way?
Some short drabbles... And... The reason...

In the doujin Maaf made by the amazing ~dinosaurusgede (which is based on pure history just so you know) It seems that Indonesia is very concerned of her family, and yet they don't show very 'family' love back? But that's just my opinion though.

And in the real world, MaPhilIndo isn't as peaceful as it might seem in the fiction world.

Aaaahhh, so true...
tough before the arrival of Colonialization we're pretty close tough. You can see in the Philippines Laguna Copperplate (900 AD) when the Javanese royals has deep connection with people in Philippines. During siege of Malacca, the sultan ask for military help to Queen of Jepara and Prince of Java. They help them, and was remembered as "Pangeran Sebrang" who helped. I guess the separation is because Philippines still see us a Mahomet (see wiki), no doubt from Spanish Propaganda. While Malaysia is still sore about Konfrontasi. Granted we are communist country at the time with lots of back-up from Russia ^^;

well and there's the malaysia and philippines sabah claim. but indo and phil are still good. though we lost contact because the one who colonized us were enemies...and that damn spanish propagandas!! DAMN YOU SPAIN!! but in my years here in the philippines step by step we're reconnecting our ties with guys again we first began in thailand and veitnam during the veitnam war and there's the anti-terrorist joint force of indo-phil against jemiah islamiyah and abusayaff. we don't have any problems with temor leste and cambodia we're currently facing some issues with taiwan and malaysia. and australia is a tsundere(i've got many relatives there)

so in SEA the most closest to phil is actually Indonesia,Thailand,Veitnam and Cambodia. brunei is ignoring us.

Brunei is definitely not ignoring Philippines. He makes lots of donation to Philippines Mindanao. dont forget the Mahirkala (did i spell them correct?) conspiracy there during Spanish colonization era, Brunei backed up the Lakandula of Tondo kingdom, Philippines D

Yes, that's very true. It's hard to believe how they are portrayed as a modern peaceful family when they're actually so broken...

uum, if you compare with other regional nations, Indonesia with Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Brunei are pretty peaceful. Indonesia under Soeharto has tried all means to create harmony and stability between Maritime SEA countries. There has been trade, tourism, culture exchange between nations as well. In fact most tourist to Indonesia came from Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines.

Have you ever heard us having a constant war, beside Konfrontasi (which was supported by Communist-Russia)? Compared that to South Asia where India and Pakistan has wars, or Iraq and Iran, Kosovo conflict, etc.

That's true, and I think I've heard about some cold conflict with Australia? I'm not sure though...

Oh that.
Before 20th century, European Australia forbid us from entering Yolngu territory because it's included into Australia territory and the White Australia Policy starts to kick in. Basically ONLY Europeans could enter Australia. 1970s Australia are scared of us because we are Asians (see : Yellow Perril). Once, we were communist under PKI and it's cold war era thus Austalia doesnt like us as well. When the killings of 1967 and Timor invasion happened Australia keep a shut mouth because Soeharto is an ALLY to the US-Australia in the cold war, especially since US (major Australia ally) is losing in the Vietnam war. Australia supports and send troops to Invasion to Iraq and Afghanistan, making Indonesia kind of wary to Australia. Bali bombing happened, and Australia experiencing Islamphobia for a while, especially since Indonesia is the most populous Muslim country in the world and direct neighbour to Australia, never mind we has the most victims because of terrorism. Then Baliho movie created from Dili massacre where Australia journalists was killed in Timor because of Soeharto. More recent, Australia protest the export of live stock and refugee from Afghanistan and Sri Lanka, where Indonesia protest the creation of US Military base in Darwin, Australia and the pardon of Australia Mariuana Queen Corby. The list could go on, and on and on....

My hunch was right :D I never knew that part of history... It's so valuable for me, so thank you for telling me ^^ And also, I can usually sense tension, so I might not know history, but I know something might or might not be going on. Even without facts. But this is very valuable to me, so terima kasih, kakak :aww:
