Malaysians During The Vietnam War

The Senoi Praaqs (above) were roped in by the CIA to assist them as ‘translators’ when the former wanted to win the ‘hearts and minds’ of the highlands people. They speak a common lingo apparently.

Anyway, here’s an old music video by Paul Hardcastle. 60’s babies should be able to remember this song:
