FuFu Malaysia Project - Nationality (Malaysia)

FuFu Malaysia Project
24th August - 16th September 2010 | Episode 5

FuFu Malaysia Project - Episode 5 : Nationality (Malaysia)

Leehom Wang 王力宏 (Taiwan). Takeshi Kaneshiro 金城武 (Japan). Nicholas Tse 謝霆鋒 (Canada). Daniel Wu 吳彥祖 (United States). Chilam Cheung 張智霖 (Hongkong). Bruce Lee 李小龍 (United States). They have nothing much in common with each other but for sure they are still famous and gorgeous Asian celebrities. But what the hell i relate them here in my Malaysia Project?

Well, i have been telling since Form 6 (A-level or pre university studies) by my mother, friends, acquaintances, strangers that i look like them. First is Leehom Wang, my mother was the first who said i look like him when his MV of 公轉自轉 was showing after a Hongkong series at Astro WLT. Next is Takeshi Kaneshiro. I think nearly 10 years ago when studying Form 6 at TARC. I used to wear glasses yet people still said i looked like the Takeshi when he was wearing glasses.

When i told my friends about this topic, they just couldn't stop laughing at me. Probably they have been seeing the same person for years and don't really realize it. Even myself at the beginning didn't think that i looked like Takeshi Kaneshiro until I flew to Japan.

My Japanese host families and friends said i look more alike to Katsunori Takahashi 高橋克典 (another local popular Japanese artist) instead of Takeshi Kaneshiro. And the funny thing is i found that Takeshi Kaneshiro looks like Katsunori Takahashi. So if A=B and A=C, so B=C, and therefore it proves that A=B=C! Since then i accepted the fact that FuFu does look like both Takeshi and Katsunori.

Even though i had adequate pocket money to spend in Japan, i did part-time job to earn more money for the future. Having a chance to work at a Malaysian restaurant in Osaka, i had many opportunities to brush up my Kansai-ben (more melodic and harsher Japanese). Perhaps my hairstyle was pretty same like Nicholas Tze at that moment, customers and my Boss wondering if i was Nicholas's long lost brother.

After moving to Hiroshima from Osaka, i showed my 2005 Taiwan trip pictures to some of my friends, they said i looked like Daniel Wu. Group of my Malay friends said i looked like Chilam when i first met them in Hiroshima. Bruce Lee popped up when i was visiting New Zealand under the Working Holiday's Visa. Later on, more and more artists such as Lee Hyun-kyoon (Korea), Louis Ku 古天樂 (Hongkong), Mark Zhao You-Ting 趙又廷 (Taiwan), Huang Xiaoming 黃曉明 (mainland China) etc being mentioned.

So, what do you think? Do i really look like the artists i mentioned above? Frankly speaking, it really flatters me because they are really all good looking guys. It's my honour! But on one side, i feel sad because i can't establish my own nationality. Nobody would think that i am a child of Malaysia. I am still who i am. Lam Ching Fu 林振富, aka FuFu. Probably i need to achieve something great so everyone would know FuFu's nationality. Because not many people alert about Malaysia's existance. We seriously need to promote and establish our own unique nationality internationally.

"Are you from Japan?"

"Are you Korean?"

"I thought people from Hongkong doesn't speak good Mandarin."

Even though i can't prevent people from thinking that i am from China, Korea, Hongkong, Japan or anywhere, my heart is still belong to Malaysia. Or should i get a "Made in Malaysia" tattoo on my forehead, letting everyone know my nationality before talking to me?

Being away from Malaysia since 2002, i have been telling everyone i am a child of Malaysia. And they accept me as a Malaysian. But in Malaysia, we always arguing that Uncle Lim was originated from China, Rajah was an Indian descendant, Hang Ali actually came from Palembang, Indonesia. Hey, we are all born in Malaysia. We have only one nationality - Malaysia. Nowhere else we can go but Malaysia is the only country we should all call home. If Uncle Lim should go back to China, i think only Orang Asli (the indigenous people) are allowed to stay back in Malaysia. Think twice before you speak. You can't delete what you have spoken or written because now we have cameras, recorders, internet, Youtube and blogs.

Another issue is since we are all Malaysians and Bahasa Malaysia is the national language, why you still surprise Uncle Lim can speak good Bahasa Malaysia? Isn't that what you want? Why can't Rajah speak fluent Cantonese or Hang Ali speak good Mandarin? That can be an insult you know? Our nationalities won't change according to what languages we speak, where is our ancestor's origin, how we look like, what colour of our skins, what festivals we celebrate, etc. Living under one big colourful roof, no matter what languages we speak, we are still all Malaysians.

p.s. 1 : It's alright if you don't think i look like any one of the artists mentioned above.

p.s. 2 : It's all about my own true stories (kisah benar). Take it or leave it.

p.s. 3 : The crescent moon is a symbol of the official religion Islam.

NicoleB said...

The hair is what makes it hard for me to say you look like them or not, but when so many people say it, I guess it is so :D

lock said...


MASA said...

you remind me of my primary school teacher. When she was at oversea, someone ask her if she is chinese. She answered all of them that she is a malaysian. :)

shloke said...

You should teach your global friends how to speak and write simple Malay words such as:

Selamat Datang ke Malaysia!
Apa khabar?
Nama saya fufu :)

or perhaps treat them with our local dishes. fu's home cooked nasi lemak, kuey teow goreng and roti canai :)

古小玉 said...


fufu said...

NicoleB : hahaha probably it's hard for you to believe, because you dont know the celebrities well :) anyway just from several angles i do look like them ya

lock : 哈哈哈 我不知道

MASA : hahaha good! now you know what i am talking here :)

fufu said...

shloke : yeah i always cook something special for them though... rather than malaysian food, i would tell them that are my own fufu malaysian food... lol i taught them some bahasa, but dont dont they still remember or not... lol

古小玉 : 真的?? hahhaa 但是我麽你有那麽大只 ><

MKL said...

I think most of Chinese in Malaysia would call themselves 华人, not 马来西亚人, let alone 中国人. And I think it's not bad to be 华人, it's a word that connects all Chinese everywhere, from USA to Taiwan to Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand etc... I think every Chinese has reasons to be proud of the many thousand years long culture, which is longer and richer than many Southeast Asian or Middle Eastern, even European, I dare to say. Another thing is to belong a country in the Modern sense. Your home country is Malaysia, where you and probably your parents were born. I just hoped Malaysia would acknowledge that and give Chinese equal rights, not allow systematic racism to give certain races more rights and funds than others.

MKL : hahhaa yeah the people here would call themselves as 馬來西亞華人 :) but most of the younger generation call themselves as 馬來西亞人 :) and we all should treat everyone like Malaysian... not to divide the citizens to malay, chinese, indian, iban, kadazan categories ><... the system has to be changed, otherwise we have t struggle longer to achieve one goal!

niceartlife said...

Kenzo said...


fufu said...

Kenzo : haha 已經過氣了 >< 你不需要羡慕 :)

Harumi said...

I too first thought you were a Chinese until I saw your Malaysian project. It's great that you started it and shared all these wonderful stories.
