I try to understand the Malaysian identity in Channel News Asia’s documentary ‘Understanding Asia’

Earlier this year, I was approached to be a part of a documentary by Channel News Asia called ‘Understanding Asia‘. The premise of the story was to have me, as a Malaysian journalist, documentary filmmaker and writer, to travel around the country trying to understand what makes up the DNA of a Malaysian.

The final product was a 45 minute episode that aired on Channel News Asia last weekend on 12th March 2017. It is available online and if you haven’t watched it, I would suggest you do (click the image above to stream it online). It’s quite interesting, if I do say so myself! Working with the production team from Dosfellas was interesting, chilled, professional and refreshing. Thanks for the experience guys!
