I don't suppose the actual cost of pulling this name change off has been considered ....vehicle number plates will be a couple century's away ..

What a brain fart of an idea .....on the way to work today my wife said why don't they just call it Corruptador ...and be done with it....

They do love to change the names of things though. Where I live the name of the town has been changed three times in the last 50 years, and the street names have changed names more than once too. Since I have been here Negros Oriental has been changed to Oriental Negros, and then back again. Many Cebu City streets have changed names more than once...

 

The list goes on...

 

 

And on...

So my asawa would be a Maharlikaian  ? Yipes.  In Dumaguete the current regime got rid of a great looking nicely colored sign on the Blvd. That said "I Love Dumaguete". Now it is a butt ugly plain white thing that says "Dumagetme". What is that ? And it faces the wrong way. You see it when leaving not when coming into town. Brilliant. I can hardly wait for the next bunch to take over. Change for the sake of change.

I think it is a great political move. When some place develops a bad reputation for this or that just change the name. You get to start over as no one will be able to figure out that you merely changed the name. Why not call it Disneyland? No will know.

I don't imagine many Filipinos identify with being Malaysian.

the country most like the Philippines, without a doubt, is Malaysia and especially east Malaysia.

So Maharlika is sanskrit not Malay.

 

the term 'Indo-China' has come to mean for some the former French SEAsian empire but actually all the south east Asian countries have been influenced by both.

both the Philippines and Malaysia were more influenced by Indian than Chinese culture illustrated by Malays and Filipinos being two of the few groups that routinely eat with their hands like Indians, and never with chopsticks. 

pretty much all the south east Asian languages are influenced by Indian ones. Thai language is derived from Pali a now-extinct Indian language that is like the Latin of east Asia.  Malay language is totally influenced by Sanskrit and Tagalog is too although to a lesser extent. 

when Bisaya speakers migrate to Malaysia they have a lot more trouble picking up Malay than Tagalog speakers do. Even though the area where Bisaya is spoken is closer to modern day Malaysia, the Bisaya language isn't closer at all.

Sorry, you need to use the :sarcasm:. There are so many in the world that follow  and therefore must believe your advice that I just figured you were one of  them.

It means "beautiful creation" in Sanskrit, but then that still isn't from a native language, so what's the difference?
