  • Meanwhile, "timog" is the Filipino word for South. Coincidence? I think notttt

  • Don't lie to me: you only know this country exists because of Tom Clancy's Pandora Tomorrow game!


  • Finally! Another Asian nation that is also a Catholic. With that in mind, you now know which country I am. People say it's the "only" Catholic nation is all of Asia.

  • This video short wow

  • Ka sabu bukan savu

  • Me : hmmmmmm........... didnt know that Indonesia gave a Jesus statue to east timor i am confused🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

  • Eu morava em Timor Leste, mas não vivia porque havia tantas coisas que não estavam lá.

  • no, no, no, timor is the name of the island, so we named the island "timor". so, you cant say it "east-east".



  • Seandainya saja suharto masih hidup dan berkuasa , tidak mungkin timor leste bisa merdeka

  • .

  • East timor miskin,kontol

  • well if you think about it east timor and philippines are the outsiders of asia!

  • Heyy..have you made episode for papua new guenea? You've mention it on here, but have you made it? Im supeeer curious about papua, its neighbouring with Indonesia but only tiny info I know from them.

  • Dili dili!

  • It´s not true that you can´t find pork in Indonesia. It´s just not a typical Indonesian dishes. You must visit Kalimatan!

  • I can tell you I have good FB friends in Asia: Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Philippines. Some are Muslims and Christians. I am Portuguese and I know we have descendents in East Timor, Malaysia, Singapore and some islands of Indonesia.

  • we help timor to gain their independence.

  • As a half Timorese I’m so proud :’)

  • Portugal didn't invited goa?

  • Hf? Nkgujtkyj

  • Philippines and east Timor were friends, We Trained their Armed forces, we are both Christian and We support them in To be part of ASEAN + We had a lots of Agreements on them On Agriculture and Education. We also gave a lots of Schoolarship to Timorese.

  • One thing we are not Asian! , we are Melanesian we are islanders like our maluku brothers, Papua, Fiji, Solomon island and other Melanesians however many Timorese are mixed with Portuguese, Middle Eastern, black, Chinese,Indonesian, Australia and many other countries in their blood but again I must say we are not Asian!

    • +Sit On My Face using term like TKI, ABRI, negri jiran, you're Indonesian aren't you?

    • +Afif Brian Over 70 years of independence you are still sending TKI regularly to your bitter neighbours Negeri Jiran, Singapore and Arab countries despite the harsh treatment they receive from the locals. At least Malaysians have the dignity and honour not to send their people into your country to become your maids. Given the resources you have and the long period of independence, you should by now look to compete with China,India, Australia, Korea and Japan, unfotunately even Thailand, younger Malaysia and Singapore look down on you because they are steps ahead of you, youre still viewed by outsiders as a 3rd world country. Meanwhile, you indonesians are busy boasting about your unsustainable and uneven development across the country and taking a lot of pride in being a step ahead of Timor-Leste, a small newly independent country whose 80% of infrastructure were destroyed by your notorious TNI/ABRI and their militias. Pathetic and shameful.

    • Afif Brian your a fool that cant answer my questions and speak of nothing relevant you keep skipping what I’m asking and telling you this will be my final message to you because you clearly don’t understand anything and do nothing but duck questions and tell lies and hide the truth

    • +Paulo Rosario look at the image of PERSIPURA JAYAPURA, look at their melanesian face, look how proud they are to become Indonesian, playing in the highest soccer league in Indonesia, some of them will play in national team, we also proud of them. What east timorese can be proud of after they got independence, maybe jesus statue? that we're donated to you

  • habis manis sepah di buang. autralia bingit ~

  • East timor had a Asian friend.. MACAU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Indonesia tak menjajah timor leste 😊

  • That's not weird.. That's what we call.. Respect to other religion. That might be weird for western country. Be we a Muslim country.. I am Malaysian. U should come here.. Go to Batu caves for Hindus biggest statue in Asia. Go to kelantan which is a very orthodox Muslim but still they let Buddha build the biggest Buddhist statue.. And there are TWO!!! visit every location in Malaysia..there are countless church here... I hope western should learn how to respect other religions as we do😅😅



  • Please mention how Australia sucking its money and oil

  • 🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩🇮🇩

  • is that correct that timor leste doesn't have their own money, how sad is that? just ask.

  • do people in Macau even speak Portugese anymore? I think only very old Chinese people do. the young Chinese in Macau only speak Mandarin.

  • Oh! Traduzcan la última parte ☹

  • You can easily find pork in Indonesia if you want . Trust me

  • Por que razão Timor Leste não se junta à Indonésia e é-lhe dada uma autonomia especial, por exemplo, tal como Hong Kong na China e Inglaterra no Reino Unido. Então Timor Leste tem sua própria bandeira, símbolo e hino nacional. As regras de hasteamento da bandeira também podem ser copiadas de Hong Kong, de modo que a bandeira indonésia deve voar mais alto que a bandeira de Timor-Leste, mas Timor-Leste pode representar o esporte e usar sua própria bandeira como Hong Kong, então a Indonésia ainda é um estado unitário como a Grã-Bretanha e a China não um país federal como os Estados Unidos. Mas se o povo de Timor Leste não quiser ser obrigado a fazê-lo

  • Viva Timor Leste Viva Filipinas we are brothers!

  • East Timor : *almost adopts communism* Indonesia : Knock knock no commies on my border

  • Asia so more Christian percent than USA

  • Macau, Goa, Damao, Diu? No?

  • I think Timor Leste is better than Indonesia. I love the beaches ❤👍 Timor Leste ❤

    • You have been independent for over 70 years and yet younger Malaysia and Singapura even Thailand have overtaken you in almost every aspect. No need to bring China, Japan, Australia and S.Korea into discussion- countries you are supposed to compete with given the lenght of your independence, the size of your country, resources and population. Instead you seem to take a lot of pride in being a step a head of TL, a small newly independent country whose 85% of infrastructure destroyed and burned down by your notoriuos TNI and its militias upon withdrawal. Over 200 million Indonesians you have, you cannot even field eleven footballers who know how to beat Thailand.. Disgraceful and embarassing.


  • do for the england bro

  • I lived in Timor-Leste for over two years - just returned the USA in Oct. 2018 - and wow, so much inaccurate information here. Please make a new video.

  • I think “timor” is also “fear” in Latin.

  • 🇹🇷🇹🇱 LOVE EAST TIMOR LESTE ♥️♥️♥️

    • +Love Myself my life dead for TİMOR LESTE & TURKEY

    • I love Timor Leste from Vietnam

  • The Timorese are a brave people! They did not bow at any moment to the enemy Indonesians defeated

  • Timor-Timor


  • I think the president who gave Timor Leste an indepence is President B. J. Habibie not President Soeharto.

  • Look this is make me laught about your oil stolen to darwin :)

  • Thx for the great video mate , Come and visit Timor-Leste! :)

  • yay, someone actually acknowledged macau

  • I'm so glad nerds out there like us exist and make these videos. Thanks for this. I married a Brazilian and now I want to visit all the Portuguese speaking countries! This place seems like a good hideout. Do they have extradition to the US?

  • Please appriciate Indonesia, East Timor would be communist country now if they didnt enter your country

    • that's your second president propaganda, just like how he killed many Indonesian by accusing them as communist

  • My Country allways the best , we are new and small country but we never speaking harshly about other country because we know we don"t have times to see another deficiency we must to create and make dream happen to show up what we are and we are awesome country with awesome people inside the point is we are small but we have a big and fresh culture that never loosing from our life. we are one but not same , thank u
