  • The Wall Street Journal has a feature on The Memory Keepers, two architects on a mission to save Malacca’s unique architectural heritage
  • FL Sam, a Malaysian blogger visits the Temples of Angkor
  • Race is still quite a sensitive issue in Malaysia, for anyone familiar with the local politics. So it’s rather timely that Anthrpology.net has a short primer on The Concept of Race
  • And in East Malaysia, the medicine effigys called Dakans used by the Melanau people are losing their traditional meaning and becoming tourist souvenirs.
