Truly Bali?!!!!!!! The Malaysians have been a little bit sneaky: they included the Balinese dance Tari Pendit in their 2009 Visit Malaysia advertisement, presumably hoping that we wouldn’t notice. But we have!

And this isn’t the first time the Malaysians have tried this trick of course.

Other Indonesian treasures claimed by the Malaysians in the past include angklung (a bamboo musical instrument), Reog Ponorogo (a dance from East Java), the spicy beef from Sumatra called rendang and, perhaps most blatant of all, the Indonesian traditional cloth Batik!

Malaysia, Truly Asia?

Or Truly Bali?!!!!!!!

memang sudah seharusnya kita akhiri kontroversi klaim tari pendet karena pihak yang paling bertanggung jawab telah menta maaf secara resmi kpd pemerintah indonesia....

dan tanpa mengurangi rasa nasionalisme, kasus ini menjadi sebuah pengalaman berharga bagi bangsa indonesia sekaligus sebagai proses pembelajaran agar kita lebih dewasa dan bersikap logis bukan hanya mengedepankan emosi belaka...

toh bangsa indonesia mendapatkan manfaat dari kasus ini...
