asian representation

I have been on a “Asian phase” in my viewing habits this past holiday weekend. I have seen Crazy rich Asians on the movies, also watched To all the boys I loved before and is currently watching Kim’s convenience on Netflix. And it was glorious. I could totally relate.

check, check and check!

For the record, I have the (books) trilogy of the Crazy rich Asians, also the same goes for To all the boys I loved before.

It was good to have these, since it has been a while since Fresh off the boat. I do however associate Constance Wu to her role Jessica Huang (Fresh off the boat) a bit too much that seeing her as Rachel Chu (Crazy rich Asians) reminds me of Jessica Huang. -but maybe that is just me. 

this show gave me a lot of laughs

Since I am not really that much immersed in Chinese culture and tradition and has adapted a more “modern and eclectic mix” of thinking,  I find these shows mirror real life instances and feelings of me and my friends accurately. Watching these shows are like a slice of life as it hits so close to home with the general Asian values of frugality, filial piety, and the occasional family feuds driven by competitiveness. I just wish they keep on coming with Asian shows like these.

For now, I am going back to my Netflix maraton watching Kim’s convenience.
