Petronas Ads Never Fail Me

It is that time of the year again (well, 1 of 4 I think) where everybody is looking forward to Petronas Merdeka 2008 advertisement or commercial, as they are called here in the U S of A. And deliver they did! I have always looked forward to their advertisements and living abroad does not deter me from watching them. Hello Youtube!

Their ads always touch the real people's stories that every Malaysian can relate to. There is a touch of humor, sad and happiness all blended together and they blended really well. You will go "ooh-s" and "aah-s" and might even cry a little bit. The best cure from the headaches you get with the political situation back home, no thanks to both sides of the parties.

I hope you would enjoy the clip as much as I do.

Hi Kak Farina,

I cried the moment Aiman asked his dad whether he could go to college. Not just sobs, but tears were running down my cheek! Even though my family is better off than Aiman's, but my parents were and still are thinking the same way as Aiman's dad. They'll sacrifice everything for the sake of education, but as for other stuffs meant for entertainment, they would only relent when it comes to books! So yeah, it hits right to home, but in a good way =) Hopefully this time next year I can call myself a Petronas employee and be proud of the advert as it's one of my own =)
