Happy Changed Metal

It has been a grim and gloomy setting in Malaysia since RMO took in full effect due to the rising cases of Covid-19. So to uplift morales, today’s episode has Kam Raslan, Sim Wie Boon and Haniff Baharudin explore topics in the ‘happiness’ sphere. Wie Boon starts with the blurring line between being happy and selfish. Then, Kam shares the changing meaning of ‘happy’ as it has a different meaning in the 14th century. Happiness was also a communal goal way back when. How has it changed into an individualised value today? Last but not least, Haniff talks about happiness and metal music – a genre that is seen as loud, aggressive and vile by the masses but gives him immense joy.
