Global Connections: Can you connect Sweden and Malaysia?

When you mention two countries as different as Sweden and Malaysia, you wouldn't think that they have anything in common, but if you look a little harder, you'd be surprised to learn that they have a lot more connections than you may think.

We've chosen the Scandinavian heavyweight and south-east Asian nation as our second set of countries in a segment on CNN International's "Connect the World," that we're calling "Global Connections."

On the surface these two countries seem as different as apples and oranges. Sweden is famous for its freezing temperatures, furniture company Ikea, ABBA and of course Swedish meatballs.

Malaysia on the other hand is well-known for Kuala Lumpur's Petronas towers and the natural beauty of tropical rainforests and majestic mountain ranges.

So what on earth could the connections between these two countries possibly be?

Well, that's why we are going to be relying on you.

We need you to send in your ideas and comments on what connections exist - whether it be text, video or photos. We'll be choosing the best ones and then airing them on CNN International. This is your chance to appear on the show to share your connections with the world.

The connections can be anything from culture and geography to music and the economy.

We also want to hear your personal stories too. Perhaps you have a family member that moved from one country to the other years ago and you want to get in touch? Maybe you visited one country years ago on holiday and something special happened? Whatever connection you think there is, we want to know.

All you have to do is leave your comments below on what connections you think exist and then one of our team members will be in touch.

You can also post your video responses directly to our very own CNN iReport page which you can visit by clicking here.

Now it's time for you to get involved - get connecting!

The Led Zeppelin front man defined the rock music genre with hits like “Stairway to Heaven” and “Whole lotta Love”.

The band split in 1980, but since then Robert went on to have a successful solo career and reunited with Jimmy Page in 1994 for the television special “No Quarter: Jimmy Page and Robert Plant Unledded”.

In 2008, his solo work was rewarded with a Grammy he shared with Alison Krauss for “Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On)”.
