Cooking, reading, tea and music > everything.

I'm also into politics and feminism. I'm currently trying to find out more about East and Southeast Asian history in a futile attempt to both recover from 12 ish years of Eurocentric schooling and learn more about my ~culture's~ history.

Well that's me in a nutshell, hope you enjoy your stay :)

Please do not scroll past this. This is lengthy, but please take care to read it. Our government is lying to us and trying to shut up the efforts of the families of the missing who are trying to tell the truth.

1.There were constant miscommunications and false…

BBC is putting words into people’s mouths, mistranslating people.

The beginning is pretty close to what he says. But then from 47 seconds in, he actually says:

I don’t know why they’re being like this. I’m just really frustrated. The fact that a country can have no plans for a huge situation like this is really frustrating. It’s frustrating! The only words that come out of my mouth is that I’m frustrated! Please hurry and save the kids, moms and dads that are stuck in the boat. Please! Please!”

But the voice over “translation” is this:

"At the moment it’s unclear whether the kids out there are dead or alive. But I want to believe that they’re still living. The reality is they seemed to have died. The responsibility rests on the government, the coast guard, the navy, all of them. I don’t know how to explain all of this. How can a whole country be so disorganized? It’s frustrating. All i can say is it’s frustrating. I just hope the children, mothers, fathers trapped in that ship can be rescued. Please. Please.”

What is this?? I’m surprised they made the man still audible with the voiceover going on. The acting of the translator is really something too, voicing sadly when clearly this father is angry. He hasn’t lost hope for his daughter or the others yet. Right now these parents can’t even get their voices heard due to police blocking them, let’s not put words they didn’t say into their mouth either. They haven’t lost hope.

Okay but Never Gonna Give You Up (better known as Rickroll) is actually a really really horrible song for many reasons, which I will better explain under the cut. 

Brace yourselves, this is pretty long.

So the maritime police, when told by the captain of the ship around 8:58 that the ship is sinking, told him to get the passengers out, giver them life jackets and put them on the lifeboats. However the captain said “I can’t do that, the electricity is going out” and then he turned it off.

However it is highly probable he had been lying as survivors state that there were 3 to 4 announcements until the ship leaned 60 degrees that to stay put. One of the survivors had taken a video recording and from 9:13 to 9:28 there are announcements saying “Don”t move from where you are, stay still” and “the cabins are safer”.

In shock right now.

Andrew Zimmern, host of Bizarre Foods, often claims that to know a culture, you must eat their food. I’ve eaten Vietnamese food my whole life, but there’s still so much that I don’t understand about my family and the place we came from. I don’t know why we can be so reticent, yet so emotional; why Catholicism, the invaders’ religion, still has such a hold on them; why we laugh so hard even at times when there’s not much to laugh about. After endless plates of com bi, banh xeo, and cha gio, I still don’t know what my grandmother thinks about when she prays.-Soleil Vy Ho, Craving the Other

The “Everybody is done with everybody” Wedding

So CNN just showed a report on the royal visit to New Zealand, which not only actively mocked the cultural traditions of the Maori, comparing the haka to the mating dance of the emu, but also denigrated the cultural traditions of many other groups as being ‘native’ and generally silly. It’s this kind of shoddy journalism and blatant racism that perpetuates an idea of multiculturalism being some kind of childish joke and trivialises the identity of 15% of NZ’s population. If you want to do something about it, there is a complaint here, and the petition associated with it here.  .


Fuck these useless royal parasites and fuck the obsession of our media to worship their pasty obsolescence. 

I can’t believe how fucking racist this news clip is.
