PATRIO-EIGHTIES-MA

Reading Time: 2 minutes Patrioeightiesma is an exploration of the existing subcultures in 80’s Malaysia with the hopes of rescuing abandoned memories through a subtly erotic, nakal revisiting of the past, and how it’s influences have trickled down to our current state of affairs and functionality. We celebrate what was by laying out what it has come to be. Below, Jo reimagines a fictional retelling of the moment.

HELLO GOD, HEAR ME, ITS ME

Reading Time: < 1 minute Born on the day of the dead in the year 1996 to a family of infidelity, paper boats, and incense smoke. The halogen bulbs in the hospital where my mother gave birth to me seem to diffuse the same indifferent glow in the masjid where i recited kalimah syahadah.
