    ...
    As an entity inseparable from the world I live in, I feel I am also inseparable from what the world expects of me. So far, I have believed in individuality, and that individuality would bring me spiritual satisfaction. Yet here I am, my very identity defined by individuals other than myself. How am I to find peace? I believe the answer still lies within my soul. I believe Emerson meant to say that true peace and happiness is only known to the individual involved in seeking it. Where must I find peace? To pay the debts of my existence, I could fulfill my family's, and to a greater extent, my country's wishes. I believe that is not enough, because contentment in the sphere of my family is not contentment in the sphere of my country, and so on. I believe I must find contentment in the grandest sphere possible: the Earth and all of humanity.
    To quell my anxieties of the future, I believe my spiritual life must attempt to conjoin and align with my "real" life, although they are already in essence, one. Pleasure and happiness can be found in either, no doubt, but if the two act in harmony and unison, an experience similar to nirvana is attained. It is like in the teachings of Zen Buddhism: the ultimate goal of all human life is the return to authenticity. My individual self and "real" self are intertwined, yet it does not feel so. I must try my hardest to align them, and in order to do so, I must follow my heart in the world that I live in, the Earth. The magnanimity of this quest is beyond comprehension, and success seems unrealistic. But what is life but this exact struggle: the reconciliation of the self with the world?

    From Brian’s voice of youth, Malaysia seems to be a country with great momentum. Its ambition, enthusiasm, unification, and mutability offer a powerful force in the country’s future. Malaysia is on the rise, and the judgment is: Malaysia Boleh!
    Malaysia is a country of great diversity, with several religions, languages, and ethnicities. Malaysia’s capacity for change and strong bonds between its various people provides an example to follow for a world of increased globalization, where tolerance and societal improvement need to work in harmony. This model is Malaysia’s gift to the world.

    I would like to say the history of the song warrants a fair claim by both countries, as they are rather similar. However, I am uncertain. It is most important to realize that Rasa Sayang may not be historically "Malaysian," but it is certainly part of the image they display today.

    As an example of a proverb or popular saying from Malaysia, Brian provided me with "Malaysia Boleh." The translation is "Malaysia can," and it is said often in Malaysia as a way to raise Malaysian morale and incite pride for the country. For example, if they had a sports team competing in a foreign country, the Malaysians in the stands would shout "MALAYSIA BOLEH!!"

    The locals enjoying hiking the mountain as well, sometimes as part of a routine. The locals believe that the spirits of their ancestors live in the mountain.
    Brian has not yet done the hike, but his friends have, and he's looking forward to it. Mt. Kinabalu is 4095 meters, and according to Brian, is a "fairly challenging" hike, "enough to rub in some excitement."

    {SNC00912.jpg} Photo of the Twin Towers at night, by Brian
    The Towers are especially beautiful at night when they are lighted, as Brian says, "like a jewel in the sky." The design of the Twin Towers also supposedly contains motifs from Islamic art. Although spectacular to look at from the outside, it is difficult to get inside. Its primary function is an office building, and the security is high. There is no public access. However, the bridge is open to tourists on certain days. The tickets are limited though and are sold quickly.

    {IMG_8995.JPG} BrianThis is Brian. Brian is 17 years old and lives in Malaysia. Brian will be attending college next year. He can speak both English and Bahasa Malaysia (the national language), however, he prefers English, and it is his most used language, including at home. Brian says he has a Christian parent and a Buddhist parent, and that he is somewhere in between. For fun, he and his friends usually hang out in malls.
    Brian really likes the project and says it's awesome. He wishes his school could do something similar where he could learn about different countries. {dialoguepic?.JPG} TylerMy name is Tyler, and I am currently 18 years old. I live in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. I will be attending college soon and will probably be studying engineering. I don't surf. Instead, I like video games, music and reading.
