Laos as Sita inspired by Dok-Jawk's Ramayana arts :[link]

=> Ramayana characters

Rama : Burmese: ရာမ Jàma̰ ; Javanese: Ramavijaya ; Khmer: ព្រះរាម Phreah Ream ; Lao: ພຣະຣາມ Phra Ram ; Malay: Megat Seri Rama; Maranao: Raja Bantugan; Tamil: ராமர் Ramar; Telugu: రామ Rama; Thai: พระราม Phra Ram; Kannada: ರಾಮ)[1] or Ramachandra[2] is the seventh avatar of the god Vishnu in Hinduism,[3] and a king of Ayodhya in Hindu scriptures.

Sita : also spelled Seeta or Seetha Hindustani pronunciation: [Sītā], listen (help·info) meaning "furrow") is the heroine of the Hindu epic Ramayana.

Ravana : Sanskrit: रावण, Indonesian: Raksasa Dasamuka, Rahwana which means: The Giant ten-headed, Rahwana (Ravana) is the primary antagonist character of the Hindu epic Ramayana;

Lakshmana : (Sanskrit: लक्ष्मण, IAST Lakṣmaṇa; Burmese: လက္ခဏ, [lɛʔkʰəna̰]; Chinese: Loman; Indonesian and Javanese: Leksmana, Lesmana, Lesmono; Khmer:; Lao:; Malay: Laksamana; Maranaw: Mangawarna; Tamil: லக்ஷ்மணன் ; Thai: พระลักษมณ์) was the brother and close companion of Rama, and himself a hero in the famous epic Ramayana.

Hanuman : (IPA: hʌnʊˈmɑn) is a Hindu deity, who was an ardent devotee of Rama according to the Hindu legends. A vanara (ape-like humanoid),

Jatayu : (Sanskrit: जटायुः Jatāyu, Tamil: Chatayu, Thai: Sadayu, Malay: Jentayu or Chentayu), Indonesian: Burung Jatayu which means Jatayu Bird is the son of Aruṇa and nephew of Garuda. A demi-god who has the form of a vulture.

=> Laos-Cambodia

The present administrative boundary between Laos and Cambodia is amongst the least studied
international border in Southeast Asia. The relationships between the people of the Lao and
Khmer people on either side of the border have also received insufficient attention.

The Khmer clearly have a long history in what is now southern Laos and northeastern
Cambodia. It is likely that the early Funan Khmer people were present in the region from about
the first century A.D. (Bruel 1916), and it is even more certain that the pre-Angkorian Khmer of
the Chenla era inhabited the border region between about the 5th to 8th centuries A.D. (Bourotte, 1955)

The 16th century marked the expansion of Lao influence into the region, as well as some
battles between the king of Laos, Chao Xetthathirat II, and Cambodia. However, it appears that
there are some differences in way the Lao and Khmer depict this period.

=> Thailand-Cambodia

Among the neighboring countries of Southeast Asia, none seems more similar to Thailand than Cambodia (perhaps not even excluding Laos and the “Tai” people scattered throughout such countries as Burma, Vietnam, and southern China). Both nations share similar customs, traditions, beliefs, and ways of life. This is especially true of royal customs, language, writing systems, vocabulary, literature, and the dramatic arts.

In light of these similarities, it seems surprising, therefore, that relations between Thailand and Cambodia should be characterized by deep-seated “ignorance, misunderstanding, and prejudice.” Indeed, the two countries have what can be termed “a love-hate relationship.”

This lack of understanding is reflected in the thinking of a considerable number of educated Thais and members of the ruling class, who distinguish between the Khom and the Khmer, considering them to be two separate ethnic groups. They assert that it was the Khom, not the Khmer, who built the majestic temple complexes at Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom and who founded one of the world’s truly magnificent ancient empires. They further claim that Khmer culture, for instance its various forms of masked dance drama, is merely a “derivative” of Thai culture. (This is despite the fact that the word “Khom” is derived from the old Thai “Khmer krom,” meaning “lowland Khmer.” In spoken Thai, “Khmer” was gradually dropped, leaving only “krom,” which over time became, first, “klom” or “kalom,” and then eventually “Khom.”).

=> Ramayana in ASEAN

The great Hindu epic inspires us so much that each of us adopted it as our national epic. Each nation adjusted the story to fit their own tradition and culture, resulted in unique varieties we find all over Southeast Asia.

Khmer people call it by the name Reamker. Indonesians have various versions including the Javanese Kakawin Ramayana and Balinese Ramakavaca. Phra Lak Phra Lam is what it's called in Laos. Burmese people has their version which is called the Yama Zatdaw. Malaysian version was adjusted to Islamic teachings in Hikayat Seri Rama. While people the Philippines got Maradia Lawana and Darangen. And of course, Thai people have Ramakien. Source :[link]

=> Why do Filipinos love to sing karaoke?

The easy, short, obvious and very much correct answer is: Because we love music.

But there's an even better explanation: Because we actually invented karaoke singing. Literally.

While the Japanese are the ones credited for coining the term "karaoke" (from "kara" meaning empty and "ōkesutora" meaning orchestra), it was actually a Filipino, Roberto del Rosario, a gifted musician and music teacher, who developed in 1975 (and later patented) an advanced sing-along-system known as OMB (one-man-band) which was the combination of a music player, voice taping mechanism, tuner and mixer -- a sing-along-system (SAS) which allowed his students to sing with the recorded music using a microphone and an amplified speaker.

Lolz love the ending....i also learned a lot..from the comic. I didn't know that the ramayana was known to these countries since hinduism didn't really spread that much as hinduism. Proves how much i know about it but thanks for the awesome comics.

Ahh Philippines singing while drunk? That's quite common here, especially amongst "tambays" (roughly means "hang out" but in the noun sense, it means a person who doesn't have anything else important to do in their particular life --- or drunkards in a different sense). But it's normal when there's a special occasion going on like birthday parties, christmas day, new years, and others such as celebrating due to promotions, becoming a father (pregnant women don't drink), and anything else that us Filipinos think it should be celebrated.

My family used to have a videoke player (a portable one not the bulky ones, mind you) but it broke and we didn't bother buying another one so it's quite peaceful in our home.

Ohhh I want Australia say "FIGJAM" in one scene! (it means F*** I'm Good/Great, Just Ask Me).

I get her reason... Or I think I do. You know, she wants to get back Cambodia or something. Maybe that's what Thailand wants too???

The rest of the RCG's reason must be directed to Matahari's mini-club members.

Or Yong Soo would be because of Luv (Piri) or his sister or his family??

I wanna know about Timor-chan though... Or Brunei and Sing's...
