BEING A HYPOCHONDRIAC IN A PANDEMIC

Reading Time: 5 minutes Case study: Me (22+, F). I’ve been a germaphobe for as long as I’ve known what germs are. I remember feeling grossed out when kids ate things off the floor in kindergarten. I remember refusing to use the washroom in the primary school because public school toilets were an experience, even if you weren’t terrified of bacteria

CONVERSATIONS WITH FRIENDS: LUNADIRA

Reading Time: 5 minutes You may know her as Lunadira, cover artist turned indie it-girl who makes sad girls feel #seen. However, when I think about Nadira a few things come to mind.

CONVERSATION WITH FRIENDS: AIMAN AND PAALAN

Reading Time: 7 minutes “I tried to capture the pair of oddballs in all their obnoxious queer glory looking out-of-place in contrast to that distinct quaint quality you find in old terraced houses of PJ neighbourhoods -by doing this I also got the chance to immortalise my own relationship to that house which acted as my safe space for the past year; MAJOR BONUS.” Natasha Pea on Aiman and Paalan

Reading Time: 5 minutes The memories from my childhood are pretty foggy but I think that was the first time I really felt the gravity of corporal punishment. I didn’t understand why I received those beatings because after all, it was an accident, and to top that off I was a traumatized 5-year-old who didn’t know any better. Natasha Pea talks about the dynamics of Asian parents in showing their love or concern in their own way.
