Stumbled upon this short video and thought I would share it as an appetiser to an upcoming post about the Spanish language.

It’s just famous people saying their favourite Spanish word but it made me disproportionately happy 🙂

Spanish is an incredible language. It is hard to rationally explain my emotional (and spiritual) attachment to it, but that’s what I’ll try and do in my next post: Six Spanish words that changed my faith.

Australia: Not the place I thought you were

The other day after work, I was flowing with the peak hour crowd down Anzac Parade, when I witnessed something awful. An Aboriginal man was heckling and shoving an East Asian man. The Indigenous guy was yelling obscenities and things like "Go back to where you came from!" to the suited up Asian guy, who was trying, literally, to shake him off. That was Awkward thing Number 1. People just watched. And did nothing. That was Awkward thing Number 2. By people, I mean mainly Asian people. The University of New South Wales appears to be predominantly Asian, even the law faculty - a contrast with the College of Law at my own alma mater. That was Awkward thing Number 3. And I did nothing because, frankly, I'm both Asian and female. I actually thought I might get hit. That was Awkward thing Number 4. It made me think about how Australia is not the place I thought it was when I was little.
