SE ASIA and the NEW 7 Wonders of the World

*start of rant* I'm so pissed! I AM SO PISSED! The voting for the New 7 Wonders of the World will end in less than 10 hours from now and Southeast Asia’s ONLY entry is still not in the Top 7!!! Holy crap!

Do you know the importance of THAT poll? – we will be in history books, coffee books, magazines, and we will be the talk of the town for a thousand years! The Angkor Wat is our chance! We didn’t do anything at all? *deep sigh*

What in the world were we thinking? There will be recount? Huh?!! Or a voting extension?!! Whadda?!! A population 568 million Southeast Asians and we didn’t even try? Even if half of us voted – others won’t stand a chance with an overall of 90 million who voted! WHAT IN THE WORLD WERE WE THINKING?!!!

BUT HELLO! When it’s the f**ken Miss Universe or Miss World WE VOTE LIKE HELL! What kind of people are we? HUH? *end of rant*

Pisanu for BISEAN said...

Dr. Mark said: "For you Pisanu, I will vote."

Yippppeeeeee! It's actually for us. Our region. I think I already spent more than 200 dollars on overseas call using my roaming phone! *sigh*

See? The importance of being informed! If the Filipinos knew or promoted this when it started in 1999, the Banaue is way up there. But hey! Angkor made it to the finals...and our heritage is at stake.

Thanks Dr. Mark!

Thank you Pisanu and Sofia and EVEYBODY!

I'm from Cambodia and thank you for your thought. Our country as you know is one of the poorest. We dont have the resources to do campaigns like Jordan or France or India did.

Let me speak in behalf of the Khmer people. THANK YOU.

No wonder... It's January 15, 2008 here and it's just now that I learned why there's no SE Asian entry for the "new" 7 Wonders of the World. It's just now that I learned that there is such a thing as voting for this! What was the local (Philippine) media thinking?!?! Or perhaps they were not thinking at all.

Rothima said...

Thanks for voting. I, myself, also voted for Angkor. But we won't win.

I'm from Cambodia, one of the Khmer's descendant, and happy to see your support. Anyway, Angkor Wat is still remained as the old world's 7th wonder. Please come and visit.
