Uncle Monkeys

Kam Raslan | Na'a Murad | Ali Johan

Uncle Monkeys

On this week’s episode, Kam uncovers the myriad of English words derived from the ancient Malay language at sea. Next, Na’a raises the question of why there are several recent groundbreaking achievements in the Malaysian field of science, such as a female astrophysicist and the discovery of dinosaur fossils by Universiti Malaya students, but none seem to be heavily celebrated. We end with Ali going through his struggles with connecting to modern music, and how that indicated that he had indeed become, an uncle.
