Me: Check out this new song I am working on.
June: Doesn't sound like a Malay song.
Me: What do you mean?
June: It doesn't sound like a Malay song. It sounds modern.
Me: What? A Malay song cannot sound modern?
June: Well, I guess it can. But usually if you hear something like this in Malay, it's more Indonesian.
How distressing is that? Malay music is now synonymous with old-sounding. And if it is modern, then it's Indonesian.
I really got my work cut out for me.
