APH: ASEAN family photo by Otromeru APH: ASEAN family photo by Otromeru
I get that the hetalia fandom is basically dead but who fucking cares?! :iconmingplz:
This fandom will be death of me lol.

So here's a bit of explanation of this whole comic(?) strip. Brunei and Indonesia are the big brothers of
Singapore, Philippines and also W. & E. Malaysia. So each of them would take care of 2 of their siblings;

Indonesia => W. Malaysia and Singapore
Brunei => E. Malaysia and the Philippines

Philippines used to be under Brunei's care (before the European colonisation) and he later found E. Malaysia. Historically, The Sultanate of Sulu (The Philippines) was once a satellite state of Brunei, later becoming independent after the Sultan of Sulu helped the Sultan of Brunei destroy a growing civil war movement and a rebellion in Brunei. Half of Sabah (E. Malaysia) was given as a gift to Sulu by Brunei after the aid given to them.

Whereas,W. Malaysia and Singapore used to be under Indonesia's care. But W. Malaysia rebelled and wanted to be more powerful than his big brother so he ran away from Indonesia and took Singapore with him causing their relationship to sour.
Historically, From the 7th to the 13th centuries, the island of Singapore was controlled by the Srivijaya empire based in Sumatra (Indonesia). By the 14th century, the Srivijaya empire had declined, and the Majapahit (Indonesia) and Ayutthaya Kingdom (Thailand) became dominant in the region. Portuguese sources indicate that during the late 14th century, Temasek (Singapore) was a Siamese vassal whose ruler was killed by Parameswara from Palembang (Indonesia). Parameswara ruled Singapura for five years, he was then attacked by either the Majapahit or the Siamese, forcing him to move on to Melaka (W. Malaysia) where he founded the Sultanate of Malacca. Singapura or Singapore came under the influence of Malacca (W. Malaysia) in the 15th century. Majapahit (Indonesia) found itself unable to control the rising power of the Sultanate of Malacca (W. Malaysia) that in the mid-15th century began to gain effective control of Malacca strait and expand its influence to Sumatra.

Just go to Wikipedia for more info >30 :heart:
