Let's Talk About MalayAsians

Our culture vultures this week explore the notions of 'the people', 'Asians', and the impermanence of places visited but gone forever. Uma discusses how 'the people' only surfaces as a relevant subject for politicians in this country around election time. Rahmah digs into the conversations stirred by the 'Crazy Rich Asians' movie trailer, sharing the confusion over the elusive concept of 'Asian'. Kam gets us thinking about places we didn't know we were seeing for the last time, and those that will soon be so.
