Civilized Pontianak Language

Eddin Khoo, PUSAKA | Farah Rani | Kam Raslan

Civilized

In this episode of A Bit Of Culture, Kam Raslan is joined by two esteemed guests in Eddin Khoo and Farah Rani. Kam starts us off with an observation on the world's civilizations - when it began and what does it truly represent. Farah Rani then examines the Pontianak; a fearsome character with tragic origins prevalent in the Malay psyche. And Eddin Khoo comments on the recent news on the usage of the Jawi language, giving some context to its importance and potential for our future.
