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 :)

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

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.

My mom loves and misses jellyfish and she spent an hour in this portion of the vancity aquarium with her camera against the glass trying to get the perfect picture.
