Good episode? Give it some love!
Hafiz from episode 13 is back, and we chat about a lot of things: about how a lot of colonial architecture was exclusionary, how that famous sign at Cavenagh Bridge may have been meant to keep local riffraff out, how the trope that "Malays are lazy" is a myth perpetuated by colonialists, and about the movie scene in Singapore, then and now.
