Hossan Leong

The Exotic East to the Emerging East

Asian communities have had rich and diverse beginnings, but how does each country cope with the onslaught of modern culture? Hossan takes a look at the evolution of Singapore society and how it applies to a wider Asian context. From our affinity with cuisine to a hodge-podge of contemporary artifacts, architecture and bizarre icons, we leap frog from the notions of the Exotic East to the Emerging East.
