People, Place, and Faces

This paining exhibit aims to cocelebrate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Malaysia and the Philippines. The truth is, relations between ther peoples of Malaysia and the Philippines have had a long histroy, with the people of the Philippines claiming to be part of the Malay race: neither white, black nor red, but beautifully brown.

Despite the foreign influences that thave dimmed the Filipinos' Malay-ness. This exhibit will show how closely related alaysians and Filipinos are. We are alike in family togetherness, in respect for our elders, with the Filipinos' "Mano Po." a gesture of putting an elder's hand on a young one's forehead, also a Malaysia gesture, if not today, then at least in times past.
